I'm so thankful for my online friends and acquaintances in 2011. Your posts always were great distractions, sometimes were fascinating new ideas and discoveries and occasionally real emotional help and succor.

This was the year that I really used GoodReads to the max and got my reading groove back - and mostly managed to write something about every book I'd read. Apart from comments I haven't written so much regularly since... 2007? At least?

Here's some creative stuff that I really enjoyed on the internet this year:

I feel the same way--thankful for the distraction, new ideas, discovery of how other people live their lives and the very real emotional support of my online friends!

That's what keeps me coming back ^^ - my small town does not have many people sharing my interests ^^ especially at my age - as a matter of fact the only anime and manga friends I have made are a former student and his female friend, heh.

A Healthy New Year and good luck with your writing!

I've been really enjoying following your reading on Goodreads, and you always manage to say something intelligent in all of your reviews, so it's an extra pleasure :-). And weren't those paper sculptures in Edinburgh magical? I thought it such was a lovely idea. I shall browse through some of these other links here at my leisure!

Aww, thank you! I hope I can let you keep that impression this year, too, heh ^^.

I'm sure I forgot a lot of my good stuff I saw - there's the free P.C. Hodgell short story set in Tai-Tastigon during the night that Jame leaves it, for example (included in a free short story ebook that also has a Liaden Univers story, by the way ( -(and I tried not to repeat too many links that I had gotten via LJ anyway), but I have discovered nifty stuff via these sort of link lists from other people so I wanted to try it.

I have great faith that you will :-). And that's a great link to the short stories - I have grabbed them, and will read them soonish (once I clear through the other stuff sitting on my desktop, anyway - I keep accumulating stuff to read later, and boy, does it build up quickly!)
