>Happy New Year, everyone!
My first project for the year is finished–the Member Milestones column for Passionate Ink’s newsletter. This one for the period of October-December, 2005. I receive e-mails from the members and compile all the good news into categories like First Sale, FABulous Reviews, New Websites, and Agents Landed! Who knew there were such prolific and talented writers in PI? Well, I did, but didn’t expect to get all the information at the last minute. LOL! After a reminder from Kirsten Griffone (aka Jeanne Laws), our newsletter editor, my Inbox was flooded.
1 Agent landed
2 Award nominees
19 Contest placements and finals
2 partials and 1 full request
4 Finalists in the EPPIE’s
50 FABulous reviews!
13 First sales – some of them multiples
10 placements on bestselling lists
7 new websites, blogs and redesigned sites
3 “other” accomplishments
1 PRO membership attained
2 PAN membership attained
Whew! And that’s just the people who saw the reminder and responded in time.
Do you volunteer for your RWA chapter? There are a myriad of positions to be filled. Bet you’d be perfect for one of them.
