I’m a little happier about my writing this year than I’ve been in the last several years. I finished two new short stories, both of which have been sent to markets. That feels a lot better. It also leaves me feel like I’m ready to write some more—I have several bits and pieces already in progress.
In non-fiction news, writing for Wise Bread ran along about as it has in recent years, with six articles published (and one more that I’ve submitted, but that hasn’t appeared yet). Posts that appeared in 2017 are:
- The Surprising Truth of Investing: Mediocre Advice Is Best
- The 3 Rules Every Mediocre Investor Must Know
- How to Spot Lousy Investment Advisers
- How One Mediocre Investor Prospered After the Market Crash
- How to Make Sure You Don’t Run Out of Money in Retirement
- How the Risk Averse Can Get Into the Stock Market
I’m pretty pleased with all of these, especially the mediocre investment advice series. Once again, none of them is a listicle (although the editors did give one of them a listiclish title).
My plans for next year are more of the same. I hope to maintain some momentum in getting stories out to editors and working on new stories. I’d even like to get back to my nearly finished novel. (Or else definitely give up on it and start on a new one.) And I’ll carry on with Wise Bread stories.
Happy New Year!
