I'm so happy for my progress on my t'DoL figure in Poser this summer/autumn, which meant I could start in on some pictures I've been anticipating for years, my recently completed 'Folly of Horanu' illustration one of the foremost among them. Pleased also that I got in-story illustrations done for six stories on my Portal Page this year.
I'm pleased with my progress on the donation front: Another year of making my 'quota' of three whole blood donations, and this year I got in for five successful apheresis donations, and no monster bruises either!
I've been persistently tickled recently with my progress on the giving front: thanks be to God, my giving to church, non-profits, and 'random acts of charity' is now a bigger monthly figure than the rent I pay! Once that finally dawned on me a few months after the fact, it's been a delight to savor. So though I haven't reached my huge goal of 25% of gross quite yet, I'm very glad for how far I've come. And I'm grateful to be blessed with such 'low' rent that I can do this! Thank you, God!
Though some of these get mentioned in the other post, I'll rejoice over them here again: Finishing book 4 at last, starting book 5, starting 'The Chronicles of Delarun,' writing my second novella, passing the 30-story mark for what's on my Portal Page, and passing the million word mark all made 2009 a year full of bright milestones on the writing front.
Annnnd...*drumroll* I now have thirteen PoadsTM in my collection! ;D
