Melting Snow

The snow is melting as the year draws to a close. 2010 has been an exciting year for me as far as my writing is concerned - signing with an agent being the highlight, but I also attended my first literary festival and had my success in the Yeovil Prize, as well as doing well on the short story front.

Who knows what 2011 will bring. I'm starting on a journey into uncharted waters (uncharted for me at any rate). It's a new adventure - like my new WIP. My heart beats a little faster and I can't wait to find out what happens next.


  1. Here’s hoping 2011 is sensational for you. Happy New Year.

  2. Every year, every day,, is a new beginning!

  3. Hey Kate - I only discovered now you signed with an agent! I really must keep up. Congratulations, you deserve it, and may 2011 be a very successful year for you.

  4. Kate, your 2010 achievements should be made compulsory reading for any unpublished writer harbouring any doubts or wondering what it takes to succeed.

    I'm sure the next 12 months will be just as successful. Any word on timescale for when your agent hopes to have the manuscript out and about?

  5. Good luck in 2011! I think it'll be a great year. :)

    I'm about to embark on a MG-novel-writing adventure, which I've never done before. Not that they're WILDLY different from YA novels (which I normally write), but I think they need an extra bit of intangible magic. I'm afraid of falling short, but totally up for the challenge!

    Happy writing, and Happy New Year! :)

  6. Thanks everyone - and I hope you all have a successful 2011!

    John, I'm going to see her in the new year so I'll know more then, and Shayda - good luck with the new project - it is an adventure isn't it?

  7. happy new year! sounds like 2010 was a pretty productive one! I hope 2011 holds the same!

  8. Hope that 2011 turns out to be a wonderful journey for you! Best wishes and every success with your writing.

  9. Congratulations on such a successful writing year Kate.

    I have a new idea for a WIP too - it seems very appropriate to be starting a new WIP with the beginning of a new decade!

    Hope you have a good one.

  10. I recently found your blog and wanted to wish you congratulations on signing with your agent.

    What a fantastic year 2010 has been for you! Wishing you many more exciting adventures in 2011!

    Love your melting snow photo, btw. Beautiful!

  11. Hi Kate
    I just popped over to see what you were up to and notice that you've only gone and got yourself an agent! Wahey! That's fantastic news. Look forward to your posts on the next pat of the supremely exciting journey!
    Have a great 2011.

  12. Of course that should have been 'part' - blame my phone, always getting me in trouble...


Please share you thoughts, I'd love to hear from you....
