Well, my darlings, we have made it to the future! Most of us should be giving 2016 the inquiring eyeball by now, wondering what it’s got in store. Some of us may be busy trying to tackle fresh resolutions whilst being horribly hungover. And, for some, it’s bidness as usual. However you’re spending the day, I hope it’s at the very least acceptable.
I’ve only two resolutions for this year:
- Write as much as possible.
- Continue being an adequate cat warmer.
All of the rest of my life flows from these two things, including keeping you entertained and informed, my beloved readers.
Now, to get a good start on the year, I’m going to ask you for topics. I mean, there’s a ton of stuff I can write about. I’ve already got much planned. But I want to know what you want. I’d like to do more reader requests. And having you make requests would be especially helpful, as I have embarked upon fiction again, and half the time now have my head buried so deep in my story world that I draw a blank when I attempt to think of this one.
You can recommend pretty much anything: geology, science in general, religious nonsense, atheism, social justice, writing (fiction and non), and many other things. Do try to avoid most sports, because I haven’t any interest in them (although if the Seahawks somehow end up winning another Super Bowl, I might just get round to finishing that series on their championship rings). We can talk about Quidditch. Possibly horse racing. If it involves balls, though, you’re probably on your own.
So, think about it, and leave your requests here, and I’ll reach into the bag and rummage around and see what I can do. No promises, alas. I’m not sure which subjects will make my brain go badabing and which will make it go sproing at this point. It’s early times yet.
I now leave you with the traditional silly New Year’s photo (link to the animated version):

May the best you’ve ever been be the worst you’ll ever see.
Happy 2016, my darlings!
