One year ago today, I started Seize the Dave over on tumblr, with a poem about an octopus. Since then, I've written more poetry and short stories than I have in all of my prior years combined. I've met lots of awesome people in the pen and paper world and gotten the hang of writing ink and paper reviews. I've participated in the Friday Flash fiction community and I've shared origami and sketches of snails and walrus bees.
Each of these things was made possible by the people that read this blog - your encouragement and feedback have been invaluable, and I value all of the friendships I've made along the way. I'm hoping that year two turns out to be just as fun, creative, and rewarding.
