It’s tempting to say good riddance to a rollercoaster year, where I’ve started and lost relationships; managed to write a huge amount and yet hit crushing roadblocks in creativity, and where my mental health took a plummet, before new friends and a welcome from the cosplay helped me start to rebuild my strength.
Work has been challenging, especially with my health, but the libraries have been supportive even while I’ve had to put the writing to one side for a while.
I’m not going to go into the politics of the year, which have enraged and saddened me at so many turns.
There’s a lot of like to put behind me, but doing so would diminish all the good times, experiences, and people who have featured in life too.
So, it’s not so much “get out of here 2017”, as “hey 2018, up for building some awesome?”
