Two Of My Friends Almost Died

One of my friends was diagnosed with a serious illness (NOT COVID), just as we were planning a trip together. I canceled those plans, which were fortunately up in the air, and tried to figure out the odds. The odds seemed low at the time.

A Long Writing Project Was Rejected

I was doing a lot of writing in 2021. It’s part of my life, and I’ve committed to improving every year. That means hustling, both on and off Medium, and completing my daily work tasks. Fiction has become a little harder, though I love anthology challenges.

Nanowrimo Groups Still Can’t Meet In-Person

Full disclosure: I’m a Municipal Liason for my local writer’s group, for Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) all year round. That means that I send out events when we sprint, set the timers, help out people by providing a space, and do my best to fill in my predecessor’s shoes. They are big shoes to fill. It’s a volunteer position, and someone has to do it.

Forward Into 2022

People like me fear that 2022 will be the same. This pandemic could go on indefinitely. Then we have to leave things behind, plans and investments into creation.
