2009 - A Year of Awesome

Wow, guys, this has been one hell of a year!

To recap . . .

January 6, 2009 - Began work on a project called The Duff
Mid March, 2009 - Finished revising The Duff and prepared to query.
May 12, 2009 - Got my first call from the lovely Joanna. Woot! I got an agent!
Late May, 2009 - I graduated from high school!
Early June, 2009 - Began work on A Midsummer's Nightmare
June 30, 2009 - The Duff sold at auction to Little Brown/Poppy!
Mid July, 2009 - I finished A Midsummer's Nightmare's first draft.
August 24, 2009 - Started college up in New York!
November 1, 2009 - Started writing Goldfish.
November 9, 2009 - Movie option for The Duff and audio rights sold!
December 30 - Finished Goldfish's first draft

So that's been my year in review. Life changes AND career changes! And THREE novels! 2009 was a pretty great year for me, especially considering how icky 2008 ... and a lot of my high school experience was.

But what about 2010? Well, boy, I HOPE it's just as awesome! My book will be out next Fall, so that is something to look forward to. And maybe I"ll even write 3 more books next year! That would be great. I just have SO many dreams and so much time.

So what were your 2009 highlights? Any plans for the new decade?
