In the Past Year, I….

  • Had three books I’d sold reach the New York Times bestseller list.
  • Went to a country I’d never been before, on my first international business trip for my own company.
  • Got some fantastic news and experienced something truly bigger than myself.
  • Lost a friend to depression, and promised to keep in better touch with other friends.
  • Heard, in person, the announcement of the Newbery, Caldecott, and Printz Award winners — the children’s literary world’s Oscars.
  • Celebrated my first wedding anniversary.
  • Got a little depressed myself, and pulled through with the help of friends and loved ones.
  • Considered returning to the world of ren faires as an actor, but decided to just enjoy them as a parent instead.
  • Killed a Balrog, and bought a lifetime subscription to a computer game.
  • Painted the house, made a rock garden with succulents, had new windows installed, and got the fireplace converted to a wood-burning one.
  • Held a highly successful, multi-participant, multi-round auction for a client.
  • Joined Twitter and moved my blog.
  • Stayed in love.

How was your 2009?
