Jill Kemerer's Year in Review 2019

Jill Kemerer’s Year in Review {2019}

Every December I try to look back and remember what I’ve accomplished. Usually, it involves some head-scratching. Sometimes I give up because I don’t feel like going through my planner to figure out what I did. But this year, it was pretty easy.

I have yet to meet a writer who is 100% satisfied with what they’ve accomplished for the year. I’ll admit, I’m hard on myself, too. I always overestimate how much time I have and underestimate how long things actually take me. By things I mean writing, revising, and promo. Definitely promo!

When I reviewed 2019, I was pleasantly surprised.

The year-in-review exercise? I highly recommend looking back at what you accomplished. It’s easy to forget all the things we did!

Do you review your accomplishments for the year? Care to share them? Leave a comment!

And bless you during these final days leading up to Christmas!

  1. I won a book of yous in the 12 days of Christmas giveaway, (10th day, a signed copy 🙂 ) Her Cowboy Till Christmas. I am so appreciative that you participated in the giveaway. I started your book today…I love books with ranching and cowboys. I live in Florida and enjoy reading about the cold, cold west… but enjoy my warm climate.

    1. Yay!! I’m so glad you entered the giveaway and were the 10th day winner! I love cowboy books, too!
      It’s cold here in Ohio today, so I don’t blame you for enjoying READING about snow from the warmth of Florida. Have a merry Christmas!
