Well, I’m here. Didn’t go anywhere. It was just annoying. Spent half the November sick, then half the December, then a big chunk of January, February wasn’t much better… There was (and still is, I think) a nasty bug going around, making pretty much everyone sick, and coming back again and again and again.
Still, it’s not like I was doing nothing all this time; I was just more active elsewhere, on Instagram and on my blog in Serbian. The weather is improving, there were conventions to attend (I skipped one, but I did attend PotterMania, see the two cosplayers above), there were numerous book promotions, and I was taking a bunch of photos and blogging about these events. Then I’d start feeling weak again, and… You get the picture. With the warmer weather, though, I definitely feel better.
Then, there was a death in the family (an elderly grandaunt, she was 96), I’ve spent some time with an aunt I haven’t seen in years (living in different countries does that), another short story collection of mine was published (electronically only, in Serbian)… And there’s politics, with the protests every day after the presidential election.
Life goes on, as they say. And I’m still around, somewhere.
