Writing Highlights of 2016

Now that 2017 has begun, I’ve been thinking about how my writing went in 2016. Here are the things that stand out to me the most:

- I had four articles and six short stories accepted by magazines. That’s one less than last year, but I received a higher pay rate this year.

- One story, the modern fairy tale “Earl King,” was released in audio form by the Untold Podcast. You can listen to it for free here.

- I continued to be a quarterly columnist for TRC magazine, releasing three articles, “Chasing Cheetahs,” “The Joy of Otters,” and “Watch Out for Poison Ivy,” and one humorous western story, “Snakebite.”

- I sold over 200 articles as a ghostwriter.

- I finished writing and editing a children’s sci-fi book. I’m happy with how it turned out, so I plan to start submitting it to agents soon.

How did your 2016 go?
