Ubiquitous End-of-Year Post

I thought about writing a long essay about the year, but I find that I don’t really have the interest. I’m eager to get 2007 done with. Bring on 2008.

Instead, I’ll just give the powerpoint-presentation highlights:

WORST PART OF 2007: Being diagnosed with cancer.

BEST PART OF 2007: The success of the treatment for the cancer.

WORK ACHIEVEMENT OF 2007: Adamant’s sales increasing by 20% over the previous year.

FAVORITE BOOK OF 2007: Red Seas Under Red Skies by Scott Lynch.

FAVORITE FILM OF 2007: Grindhouse, by Quentin Tarantino and Robert Rodriguez.

FAVORITE RPG OF 2007: It pre-dates 2007, but that’s when I got it, so: Spirit of the Century.

FAVORITE ALBUM OF 2007: There were a bunch of good ones. If I had to pick one: Mark Ronson’s Version.

FAVORITE TV SHOW OF 2007: A tie between Doctor Who and Mad Men.


Plans for 2008: Expansion of Adamant into non-RPG entertainment fields (fiction, and some other stuff — more on this in a “state of Adamant” post on the company weblog later this week), and a more concerted effort on my part to devote time and attention to my own writing as well.

Beyond that? Who knows — 2007 felt like a lost year, spent in reacting and recovery, which had me missing opportunities. My plan in 2008 is to re-boot and take advantage of opportunities as they come.

Happy New Year.

  1. I know it’s not the same, but I got both “movies” of Grindhouse on DVD as a gift from my lovely wife. Care to have a viewing sometime?

  2. Did Lies come out this year, too? I dunno – I got an advance galley copy from Scott before it was actually released.
