I successfully finished the 6th draft of my novel, "Justice." I've chosen an editing service, which I will approach in early 2017, and I'm still on track to releasing the novel in 2017.
I successfully completed the first draft of "The Last Actuary," which I will submit at the end of January 2017 to another contest.
I made six submissions to magazines, which was twice as many as I submitted in 2015, but I still fell short of my goal of 26. This is my biggest regret for 2016, but I felt I made great strides in other areas.
Other stats for 2016:
- 23 posts in this blog (same as last year).
- 7,685 pageviews, bringing the total to 60,381 (up 15%).
- The Mormon Mel had 3 new posts and 382 new pageviews for a total of 1,576 (up 32%).
- The Music of Mel had 14 new posts and 1,381 new pageviews for a total of 4,812 (up 40%).
- The Econo-Mel had 2 new posts and 364 new pageviews for a total of 1,999 (up 22%).
- The Melkim Blog is a new blog with 10 posts. Evidently, since it's a Wordpress site, I haven't yet figured out how to capture the number of blog posts. (Something fun to research this next year).
- My YouTube videos had 32,273 views for a total of 327,389 (up 11%).
- I reviewed:
- 13 movies
- 10 TV shows
- 5 books
- Evidently, this past year, I only had one non-review/update post, and here it is:
- Struggling with Justice (how I overcame my writing woes and got back to work)
How did you do in 2016?
