Tip of the Quill: A Journal

Wow, that title works in so many ways. First off, we have two new servers up and running, which should help solve some long-running issues on our end. That’s not why we’ve been down lately – that was primarily due to the massive ice storm that rendered huge chunks of Ohio powerless for a week over Christmas. But now we’re back, and things are shaping up nicely for a couple of long-running projects. More to share on that in the coming weeks, I’m sure.
That leads me into my New Year’s resolutions. Min Jung has a nice list of resolutions, to which I’ll add my own:

  • Bring back Inkblots in a new incarnation to celebrate our tenth anniversary
  • Figure out a way for Inkblots to make money
  • Get back in shape without obsessing about it
  • Cook more of my own meals, and eat less fast food
  • Publish some work somewhere other than Inkblots
  • Finish the novel, which I’ve just realized has another huge chunk of content to be added to the website
  • Reapply to grad school as necessary
  • Carpe more diem

Twenty-seven and 2005 both feel like they’re brimming with potential. I guess my main resolution is really make good on that. Onward!
