A Merry Christmas, Whatever Your Season

Merry Christmas, you marvels of humanity! Congratulations on making it through another year, and hopefully gathering a store of happy memories along the way.

If you’re like me, though, this may have been an especially rough year for any number of reasons. Perhaps you noticed the sudden lapse in blog posts and updates from me. Well, in a nutshell, I lost my writing for the greater part of this year. February to December was a desert without words. I would not wish that on my worst enemy.

But after months of struggle and anger and wanting to smash coffee mugs and bouts of crying and a final rest, I think I’m starting to get the words back. It’s different now. I’m hoping that it’s an entry point into a new era and phase of writing, and I’m choosing to hope that my craft will be better for it.

But dang. That was rough.

So here’s wishing you a merry Christmas, whatever season of life you may be in. Keep growing, keep living, keep doing you. And here’s looking forward to the surprises the future will bring.
