brumeier: (cheers)
Let's be real. 2016 was a rough year out in the world. We lost a lot of beloved icons. America gained a lunatic for a president. There was violence and natural disasters and a general feeling of hopelessness. I'd like to say that we have a chance to turn things around in 2017, but I'm not honestly very hopeful about that.

BUT. Things in my corner of the world weren't terrible. I voted in my first-ever presidential election (yes, I'm in my 40s and I'm a slacker). I attended my very first Stargate Convention and got to meet the men I write so much about. I also got to meet some of my online friends: [livejournal.com profile] ride_4ever, [livejournal.com profile] aivix, and smiles2go. I was able to keep a roof over my son's head and food on the table. I visited my mom and my grandparents in Florida. I continued to confound family and friends with my very pleasant relationship with my ex and his girlfriend. I spent a lot of quality time with my brother.

There were lady ghostbusters and lady x-wing pilots and a whole new Tarzan to ogle. I continue to expand my social consciousness. I strive to be a better person, and to make my corner of the world a happy place. I continue to be amazed at what a warm and welcoming place [livejournal.com profile] ushobwri has become.

And friends, I wrote my ass off. ::grins:: This was mostly due to [livejournal.com profile] comment_fic, which I started visiting regularly for prompt inspiration. (And had the pleasant side effect of making a new super awesome friend in [livejournal.com profile] nagi_schwarz.)

I posted 157 fics this year. Gah! Insane! 130 of them were prompt fills.

My posted wordcount for the year is an astounding 269,311. So many words!

I participated in 12 fannish challenges/exchanges/etc.

My hurt/comfort bingo card has eleven squares filled in, beating my last year's record of two. No bingoes, but I'm okay with that.

For this gal, 2016 wasn't a bad year. Let's hope 2017 doesn't kick my ass. Or yours! ::hugs to all:: Better days ahead for all of us!
