It's been a relatively quiet year for me. I moved back to Newcastle just before Christmas last year, and have spent a fair bit of time just settling back in, doing stuff for the new house (lots of new infrastructure), catching up with folks, and re-adapting to this city's more casual lifestyle (than Melbourne's).
Highlights included the Global Atheist Convention, back in March, and the World Science Fiction Convention, in September, both of which gave me excuses to visit Melbourne and keep in touch with some of my favourite people.
Actually, much of the year has consisted, for me, of holing up in my study researching and writing a new book. Hopefully, y'all will see the results of this effort some time in 2011. Beyond that, I have some other projects at very early stages - too early for me to talk about in public or to know whether they'll come to fruition. If all goes well, 2011 will be focused on these.
Tonight, Jenny and I will be watching the fireworks - and drinking some bubbly - with a couple of our close friends. In not very many hours, it will be a new year with a whole lot of extra adventures to happen ... and doubtless, for me, a lot more time reading and writing here in the study. May 2011 be good to us all. May it be safe and peaceful, but with that element of adventure I just mentioned. And as always, may you astound the world with the quality of your thoughts and your work.
