Last year my friend Erin of Bubbles and Beebots tagged me on a great little idea to write a letter to myself to open in a year’s time. Well that year s up – 2017 is here and it’s time to open that letter – you can all read it here:
After reading this I couldn’t help thinking back and remembering how the world was back then. Move on 12 months and the world is a very different place. I think more so than usual, many of the problems we had back then haven’t changed. Wars, fighting, innocent people suffering and the world in general is not doing much to help. In fact the world is closing up. With Brexit and Trump to contend with there is much in this world that isn’t right.
Among this we lost many well known legends last year and we all share the sadness of this. For me personally Terry Wogan is a great man that will be sorely missed but of course he wasn’t the only one and many others passed away who were never mentioned.
My regular followers will know that I like to write about space and what’s going on in it. A highlight for 2016 has to have been seeing Tim Peak’s mission on the international space station
From a personal point of view things again have changed a lot. I’m now working at another company and working as hard as I can at it. I started my Circuit Mechanix magazine and I have four issues published.
I have a few weeks to work out where I’m going to take Circuit Mechanix this year, it’s been hard work and I’ve learned a lot but there are other things demanding my attention too. I have stories to write and they won’t write themselves.
So what about this year? That’s a good question and I’m going to cover that in another post and with another letter. But for now I’m trying to think about what I’m going to do about many things. I’ve thought about another use for my universe of possibilities site, there are many great Sci Fi and fantasy writers out there who need a place to have fun and I’m hoping to give that.
This year has already started throwing some problems at me, but over time I’m hoping to overcome these to be able to be here more. So keep watching!
