The most popular posts of 2018

Welcome to New Years Eve. It’s that time to take a look back at the last year and see how far we’ve come. And so, every year I post the most popular posts from the year before we move on to the new year.

These are not necessarily written in 2018. They were simply the ten most read in 2018. If you missed any of these, I hope you enjoy them now.

Keeping a poetry journal

Alright, I get it, I need to write more about poetry.

An open letter to the teacher who told me not to be a writer

You know, I also wrote an open letter to the teacher who inspired me to write. I kind of wish the more positive post had made it onto this list instead. Oh well.

How I messed up my launch and what you can do to avoid it

I think this one was on last years list, too. That’s humbling. Bit easier now that the book is out successfully.

Cut these things out of your day

I’m really glad this one made the list, and I hope that it helped people. There’s so much dumb stuff we fill our days with when we could be doing things we love.

The best movies for storytelling

You guys, movies are awesome. If you want to watch some great movies in January, then here’s a good place to start.

Moving tips from someone who has moved too much

Nothing to do with writing, and only slightly to do with reading. Well, I hope it helped someone. I’m so damned tired of moving.

What is speculative fiction?

I’m so glad everyone was interested in this. I was happy to explain, basically, what I write.

The cons of writing a continuing story

This is something I’m struggling with still. I might be taking a break from Station 86, actually, to write something totally different. Not sure, though, we’ll see.

When to share yourself and when to wear a mask

Again, I’m so glad this one made it on the list. I really work hard on being honest while not over-sharing, and I’m sure this is something that a lot of bloggers struggle with.

Writing dark poetry

Honestly, I worked hard on the prose in this post. I wanted it to resemble a poem, even if it wasn’t one. So the fact that this is the most popular post of the year is awesome!

Now, I have a question for you. What are you most proud of from 2018? What did you do that you just want to shout about? Let us know in the comments below.
