Odin Muses Over the Year

This was…..a Year.

The dumpster fire that what can loosely be termed politics left many at the edge of their seats wondering what the future would hold. I myself am also left on this twisted emotional roller coaster as my livelihood is toyed with like some sort of carrot on a string.

But in some strange irony, the year for me personally…was pretty okay. I did not manage to achieve everything I wanted, but at the same time, I actually saw some semblance of progress toward a direction I want to be in. The destination is still unclear to me, but maybe if I can hold on a bit longer it will reveal itself.

A lot of doors have also closed behind me, but I can also see some opening in places I never thought there would be any. It’s a strange feeling, I can’t completely say it is optimism, but it is a nice change of pace.

This year I saw the end of a seven year project, and actually published a book. I finished something. And I have very few achievements that I can compare it to.

For those of you who are curious an still haven’t taken the plunge on it, Smashwords is also having a New Year sale from now till January 1st. You can get Sleepless Flame for only $1.00. Just add it to your cart then use the code “SEY75” There are also TONS of other authors participating in the deals, so if you are looking for some nice new reads, and maybe even made book reading goals for this year, take a gander and have fun:

I also met a lot of fantastic people, and had the opportunity to work with a few projects that are actually interesting to me, not just something to pay a bill.

I’d like to take the opportunity to thank all the people who have stuck around. Whether I have met you in person, or have had passing words on the internet pathways. You have all helped shape the things I create, and I hope that our interactions may have left an impression. 

Thanks for all the support. And I hope to continue to entertain.

Until Next Time~
