And so far the blog has helped. I've gotten a decent number of page views as well as some encouragement with the stories I've posted. I've also put more time into editing my book, which is currently getting a heavy editing from a good friend.
So while I haven't posted as much or written as much as I'd like in the past two months, during 2013 I did write:
- 4-5 short stories
- 42 blog posts
- Two full drafts of my novel.
- A lot of notes and planning for my next novel
The past two months I've been delving a little further into another passion of mine—photography. So as a end-of-the-year present, I'll post some pictures I've taken and you can feel free to download them. Print them or use them as screen-savers or do whatever you want with them, just don't sell them! I suggest clicking on them for a more enthralling experience. (Dimming the lights and playing Tran Siberian Orchestra might help as well.)

So what did you do in 2013? Or what do you want to accomplish in 2014?
Anyway, have a Happy New Year! In 2014, create something that has never been imagined!
