As 2017 wraps to a close I am very happy with the achievements I’ve made this year. I have published over 140 articles on Weekend Notes, I won 11 writing invites, I reviewed two films, went to a puppet show, an art gallery opening, an escape room and several wonderful Fringe shows. I average between 2 and 5 articles per week. I love being a writer. In the hunt for places to review this year I have found so many wonderful places around Perth I’ve never visited before. I spent so much time exploring the Swan Valley in particular. There are still a few places left in the Swan Valley I haven’t visited yet. Something to look forward too in 2018. I have no idea where my writing is going to take me but the journey thus far has been interesting and fun. I am very excited about 2018 and curious about what is going to happen to my writing career over the next 12 months. My goals for the new year is to try and get published on more websites and if possible in a real honest to god newspaper.
