A busy year, mostly writing. Far steadier than last year as far as good/bad things go; though friends had difficult years, ours was a definite improvement on 2007.

My 2008:

  • I actually completed some writing projects (see details)

  • completed the Canada Council grant

  • friends and family put up with my whining about turning 50

  • new writing laptop

  • Jim and I celebrated our 25th wedding anniversary with a lovely writing retreat at La Push that was a definite highlight to our year

  • visited Chicago for the first time

  • helped run my eight Clarion West workshop and it was a great one

  • survived Seattle's snowcopalypse quite well, though I did really miss my parents' usual trip to visit us over Christmas

  • Sophia decided that Atia is okay and Titus is tolerable

For my favourite listens, reads, and details of my writing accomplishments, see Les Semaines.
