goodbye, 2009.

For the past few days I've been wondering how to start -- or write -- this post. So much happened this year; I honestly have no idea where to begin.

In chronological order, the highlights of my 2009:

-Apologies to an Apple arrives
-getting to chat with Beth Kephart, who is incredible
-my half-birthday
-National Poetry Month and the poem-a-day challenge
-talking to the fun and fabulous Justina Chen Headley
-hosting Poetry Friday for the first time
-being a part of the Summer Blog Blast Tour at Miss Erin's
-my first acceptance, from Crab Creek Review
-joining Twitter (I was so excited)
-the American Idols Live! Tour 2009, which was so amazing
-my NYC/Niagara/DC trip
-attending Janet Lee Carey's book launch party
-my 12th birthday
-the ReadWritePoem virtual book tour
-the very first collaborative poem here
-my collaboration with Erin, titled "Carving"
-my 200th post

I'm excited and pumped for 2010. I think it's going to be another great year.

You've done more this year than many writers get to do in a lifetime. You should be very proud.

Happy New Year, Maya. I wish you much success in 2010!

Beth - thank you!

January - I'm so satisfied with the way I'm ending this year...I don't know how I'm going to top this in 2010. Thanks for stopping by! Happy New Year.
