2016 Roundup: My Year in Stories

2016 was a harrowing year, for me and most other people. Still, I can’t deny there were some good things in my year. I completed edit three of my WIP, and wrote novel number seven during NaNoWriMo. I visited Colorado twice–once for my niece’s graduation, and again for my parents’ 50th anniversary. It was fun visiting family and getting out to explore my home state. Plus, my parents came out to visit twice, which made for some fun adventuring right here at home. And, of course, adventure is essential to keeping a writer happy!
