I watched both the daughters officially leave home, and wallowed in my subsequent nervous breakdown and sense of having no purpose in life.
I got asked to edit a massive whack of D&D 5th Edition (all three core books plus “The Rise of Tiamat”), and realized I might still have a purpose in life after all.
I finished two novels I’d been working on for a while.
I wrote another novel that should be out fairly soon.
I read a lot of books.
I watched a lot of movies.
I watched some good TV.
I edited a number of novels for some really cool writers.
I read and reviewed a bunch of screenplays from some equally cool writers.
I watched a whole bunch of friends and people I’ve worked with launch and expand some massively cool creative endeavors.
After a long period of fits and starts, I finally dug into full-on development of a new game I can’t talk about yet.
I got my yellow belt in shotokan-ryu.
I wrote a lot of words about imaginary places.
I drew a lot of maps. Like, seriously, a lot of maps.
I spent another 365 days in the company of the most amazing woman in the world.
