New Year's Day

Wasn't 2007 a year full of wayward passions, indescribable surprises, luxurious days of leisure (many of which were spent watching crystal-blue tide waters slowly wandering up a tropical beach and back out again), and such moments of bliss that would make angels weep with gratitude? No? Me neither.

Don't get me wrong; it wasn't a bad year for me. Unfortunately, I feel like I haven't made much progress since last New Years (as indicated by the chilling similarity between this post and last January's First Line Meme):

January: Unless I have a year wherein I sell both a novel and its movie rights in a fierce bidding war, win the lottery and fall madly in vigorously-requited love with twin Australian fitness models, each January I will probably look back at the previous twelve months and think, "Well, that could have been better."

February: Sometimes I imagine a Life Clock, not unlike the hourglasses described in the Discworld books, but for mine, the ticking of one "second" is marked by the sounding of my alarm clock every morning.

March: The clever thing to do, of course, would have been to start with the important, Must-Be-Done tasks.

April: The week since my previous post was mostly filled with such stuff as work-weeks are made of; I won’t recap those here.

May: Another cluster of social events!

June: I like it better when the Universe thwarts me via distraction by Fun Activities, e.g. last weekend.

July: I know it’s not a requirement for every webcomic/comic/graphic-novel artist to attend a Scott McCloud event, but when he’s right here, it seems wrong to miss it.

August: In preparation for this post, I wrote out a list of events of what I did on my trip to San Diego (as best I could recall, anyway).

September: [I Have Great Friends!] Okay, that's not exactly news, but I thought it worthy of restating.

October: *sigh* Those of you who follow the webcomic and/or receive the Newsletter know that I'm still alive.

November: I spent most of the day in my pajamas, writing.

December: Now that NaNo is over, I have no excuse not to post more here in LJ. So here are some things I've been thinking about.

Now, I have a Stone Soup Party to go to. Happy New Year, LJ Friends!
