A bit of housekeeping.

I’ve decided that it’s time to retire the ‘Sketchbook’ column as a formal, regularly-scheduled thing.

2021: Intention(s)

I’ve had a hard time figuring out my goals for this year, let alone how to talk about them.

I’ve been tempted to just write last year off entirely, to look at the admittedly ambitious targets I set a year ago, the things I still want to accomplish, and start fresh. Pretend that—as far as my personal and professional goals go—2020 just never happened. Go back to zero and start again.

But that’s not going to work, is it?

Inspired | November & December 2020

Every month (or so…), I share the articles and sites that I found most interesting. Here’s what caught my attention in November and December: film theory, fandom, and representation in fiction.

Christmas Eve, 2020

The season looks different this year, and I know it’s going to be difficult for some of you. Whatever this time of year means to you, however it’s changed, I hope you’re able to find some joy—and a little bit of peace—in it.

2020 in Hindsight

Rather than focus on everything that didn’t happen this year, I’m going to focus on what did: the things that brought me joy in 2020. The things I want to carry into 2021 and beyond. That one (1) goal I definitely achieved.

Sketchbook #60

I’m going to keep this short. I’ve got a bigger end-of-year thing coming later in the month, and really… November wasn’t much different from any other month this year. I had some good writing days. I edited some photos. Not as many as I wanted, but more than I thought I might.

It wasn’t ideal, but it was fine.
