Wow. The Edited Life turns one today!

When I first started blogging, I worried that I wouldn’t have enough to say to sustain it for this long. Apparently that isn’t a problem (my husband never doubted it, I’m sure). Whether or not any of it is worth reading is another matter…

My very first post was about the pivotal book “Goal, Motivation & Conflict” by Debra Dixon, and was only 195 words. Since then, I’ve expounded on everything from my ideal office and my struggle with structure to my trip to Europe and my dog.

The blog has been a great way for me to track my journey and progress as a writer, as well as a place to meet new friends, many of whom are on the same journey.

Thanks to all my readers for the support, ideas, and comments. I’m looking forward to another year!

Tell your friends!

      And, from your fingers to some editor’s eyes…

    Happy Anniversary, Gwen! I know I’ve enjoyed each of your posts…from the struggle to the trip to the dog (even though I suspect you enjoyed gloating over Scrivener – nah, nah – I got it now too)…you always have a great perspective and a wonderful way of seeing life.

    Here’s to a post coming soon that says, “I’ve sold!”

      Thanks, Em. You’ve been there with me from way early on. While I enjoyed gloating over Scrivener, I’m even happier that I can now share it with you.

      And, “Here’s to a post coming soon that says, ‘I’ve sold!'”? I’m all for that! 😀
