In a personal sense, 2016 was a fine year. I meet a new group of fellow writers. We traveled. I became a little more serious about becoming a published writer. This included redeveloping http://www.pibweb.com and getting stories published by Artgaze Magazine (http://artgazemagazine.com/2016/10/10/short-story-the-dungeon-competition-by-lynn-alford/ and in the magazine http://artgazemagazine.com/2016/10/15/artgaze-magazine-rebirth-is-here/)
In another sense, it was a less than stellar year. While every year sees the death of celebrities, this year seemed to take a few more that I cared about than some do. Plus the US election was the cause of a lot of angst. So glad that I live in Australia where election campaigns have short time frames.
