Happy New Year!

December 27th, 2020

We’re coming to end of a year that has been unique. Many people use ‘unique’ in the wrong way. They use it when they simply mean ‘different’ – but unique actually means ‘one of a kind’. I don’t think anyone making plans and resolutions last January could have imagined what 2020 would be like and I’m sure you’ll agree with me that it has been truly unique!

For many it has been very difficult. So many people have been seriously ill or died; so many people now find themselves unemployed or the hours they work (and their income) have dropped. Both personal and government debt across the world has soared. Others have found the isolation of lockdown hard to bear and have not been able to access the non-Covid healthcare they need.

We still have a way to go before we can put all this behind us, but I want to leave you at the end of 2020 on a note of optimism as vaccination programmes around the world seem to be picking up speed.

How we live our lives might never be quite the same as before and please excuse the cliché but: as one door closes, another opens. It’s a cliché because it has some truth in it! As some of the more traditional jobs wind down and different working practices become apparent, new opportunities will arise and it’s up to us to make sure that we’re prepared to make the best of these.

For so many, writing has been an escape and a solace over the past twelve months, so let’s raise a glass to ‘literary endeavour’. If nothing else, we can escape from reality for a short time into our own world of writing and reading, and give ourselves a breather from the harsher realities of life.

I close on the hope that 2021 will be a healthy, happy and prosperous year for you and yours!
