I planned on writing a long, thoughtful, ruminative post about the year that's about to end.
The usual culprit (lack of time) has taken care of that.
But I will say this: It has been an extremely tough and challenging, yet rewarding, year. Getting used to life with twins and a four-year-old has been, well, extremely tough and challenging, yet rewarding.
Some days I don't understand how it all works. I credit my wife with keeping everything afloat. She continues to amaze. As do the kids...
Writing-wise, I was lucky to see a few things published, as well as have my work featured at the New Short Fiction Series (that was a thrill).
As for actual output, though, I don't have much to show for 2009. This is weighing on me as the year comes to a close. I tend to measure my self-worth via writing. Which is not healthy, I know. New Year's resolution, perhaps? I've never been very good at keeping them...
