2020 Publishing Round-Up

Publishing clips 2020

Early last year, before the pandemic hit, I made a secret goal that felt like a huge reach: To try to get published in one new publication per month. The process of connecting with publications intimidated me, and I thought a goal like that would help me get over this self-imposed barrier.

At the time, one new publication a month for the rest of the year equaled nine publications. I really didn’t think I could do it.

When the pandemic hit, I really, really didn’t think I could do it.

Well, we all know that 2020 was full of surprises. One of them turned out to be that I reached my goal! Scratch that — I surpassed my goal!

I am so proud and so grateful to report that my words were published in 17 publications in 2020. You can see the full line up (with links!) below.
