It’s become a bit of a yearly tradition to do a post looking back on the state of writing in the prior year. Inspired by a similar post by Brandon Sanderson, it’s a good exercise for me to see just what I’ve accomplished. And boy, this year, it has been a hard challenge. Some drafts of this felt artificial, others rambled for thousands of words. Hopefully this is a bit of a happy medium between the two. As late as it is, I want to get this retrospective out there. Next week, I’ll lay out the goals I’ve set for myself for 2017.
