My two biggest failures have been in not asking you, my readers, about your publishing successes and writing difficulties. After all, my blog is about helping writers get published. Fixing those mistakes is on my goals list for 2015.

I would love to celebrate the end of the year with you by rejoicing in your successes. Please tell me

  • How have you grown as a writer?
  • Are you submitting to publishers? To magazines? (If you aren’t submitting, you can’t get accepted.)
  • Have you completed your book?
  • What writing goals have you set for 2015?

And help me help you. Tell me

  • What aspect of writing is giving you problems?
  • What topic(s) would you like to hear more about as 2015 plays out?
  • Would you like me to do some video tutorials or even possibly a webinar?
