Obviously, I have a lot to be thankful for, but today, I’d like to focus on just one thing: come Monday, I’ll have been writing this blog for one full year. Last November, when I published my introductory remarks, I wasn’t sure how seriously I’d be taking it, but somewhat to my surprise, I’ve managed to post something every day. Taken altogether, that’s a whole book’s worth of material, and the experience has paid off in unexpected ways. Along with the discipline of writing on a daily basis, I’ve made new friends, had a number of interesting encounters with other writers (not to mention a legendary ping-pong player), and learned a lot about myself and my craft in the process. I’m deeply grateful, then, to everyone who has followed along so far—let’s make the next year even better!
