I can hardly believe this, but tomorrow is Keep It Lit's one-year anniversary! When I started writing here, my goal was to create a space that I felt was lacking—a space where we could take literature down from its ivory tower and play with it! This past year has been so much fun. It's been an amazing way to meet new people and talk about things we might normally not bring up at all, and I'm so happy to have you here with me to celebrate. A true blogoversary should be celebrated with verve, so today I'm wearing my typewriter necklace, doling out high fives, and serving you up a long list of my favorite articles from this past year. (I'm also celebrating with a new domain: keepitlit.co. Yes!) Cheers!
This past year was also full of learning, with how to's and discussions on retaining what you read, backing up handwritten work, decluttering our bookshelves, making the move to digital submissions, and how music affects our creativity.
One of the year's absolute highlights was interviewing Pulitzer Prize winner Adam Johnson. Yes!
What a year! There's so much more that went on than these links show, and it's amazing how much I've learned simply by writing these posts, sharing with you, and learning from you, as well! Thanks to all who are reading, and here's to another year full of adventure, exploration, and wonder.
