Because it looked like a good thing to do – plus it’ll give this blog some shape – below are 13 things that happened in 2010 that I am grateful for.

  1. I quit my day job. (However, I do NOT advocate this for everyone!)
  2. I turned 50.
  3. Hubby and I spent a week in a rental house in Cambria, California, and loved every second of it.
  4. I took classes on how to write query letters, and proceeded to bombard agents with said query letters.
  5. I did not land an agent.
  6. I finally joined the FF&P chapter of RWA. Finally!
  7. I worked a music teacher’s convention by LAX over the July 4th holiday weekend.
  8. Spent nine days camping at Mammoth Mountain, joined up with my brother and his gal.
  9. Diagnosed with an Acoustic Neuroma in August.
  10. Finished a damn fine play in September; had a reading of it that excited good friends of mine.
  11. Went to Colorado to see my best friend for a week.
  12. SOLD! A two book contract to Crescent Moon Press!
  13. Had surgery, am on the downhill side and doing really well.

And…that’s my year in review, lol!
