Unless I know a person very well, it's hard for me to open up and talk. I've heard other authors are also like me, semi-recluses, more relaxed sitting at their computers than in the company of live people.
When it comes to sharing any of my accomplishments, I'm more comfortable doing so online. Still, it doesn't come easy. I go through the motions, but am not exactly thrilled about expanding on what I've done. I much prefer bragging about someone else.
Since I suspect I'm not the only one out there who hates to crow, I'll make it easy for you. I invite each person who reads this blog to crow about one thing you've accomplished.
If you're not a writer, you can always mention something else, like getting a degree, giving birth, preparing a special recipe, even vacuuming, or completing a crossword puzzle. No accomplishment is too trivial.
Writers, brag about some aspect of your writing life. Maybe you've released a new book, finished editing one, started a new one, won an award, wrote a blog post, cleaned your desk. If you can't think of anything new, mention something you've done before. You get the idea.
One crow per person, and not too long. Please provide a link if you have one.
My crow: Despite fighting a cold, I've been editing A Perfect Angel, the romantic comedy spinoff of Her Handyman, and am almost done.
