This blog just reached 300 followers. This in and of itself is amazing, but it is not the only reason I want to celebrate.
I started this blog in 2015 hoping that there would be interest in what I created, but I had no way of knowing if anything would come of it until I tried. I’m so glad I decided to try. This blog was created back in January 2015, but I didn’t start to put it to real use until August of that year. For that reason, I consider August 16, 2015 to be the blog’s true start date.
We’ve been through 6 WriMo events (and two NaNoWriMo wins), saw The Dreams go from one chapter to “the end”, and we’re now 33 chapters into Inbetween. I’ve written 322,645 words of fiction since August 2015 and almost all of those words are available to read on this blog. I’m proud of how far I’ve come in two years and I’m so happy to have so many people along for the ride.
No matter if you’ve been following for two years or two minutes, I’m glad to have you with me on this journey. Knowing there are people out there willing to have my writing show up in their media feed keeps me going when depression and anxiety are trying to rip me apart.
Thanks for being here. We’re at the start of the third year of this adventure. I can’t wait to see what the future holds. I hope you’re as excited as I am.
