I got divorced about 6 months ago. It was a good decision for the both of us, as we are both much happier now. I still have a speaking relationship with her and my child, so it's all good.
I'm working on writing more short stories, for a collection tentatively called "Mostly Dead: A short story collection".
I have revitalized my interest in art, although my drawing skills are still poor. Looking at doing more block printing, and the converse of that, digital painting.
I've been on more road trips in the last six months than I have in years (mostly concerts, although I have Pensacon coming up this February, which I'm excited about).
I'm trying to live up to my three words, which, for this year, are : Reduce, Engage, Create
I reduced stress in my life with the divorce, I'm reducing the amount of crap that I own (which is WAY too much, learned only after having to move all of it), and I'm reducing the negativity in my life (I've been off of Facebook for almost a week and I honestly feel better).
I joined a writers group, engaging in my community. It's done wonders for my psyche, as well as my output, as I hate not having anything to bring to the group for critique.
I'm writing more in the past 6 months than I have in the last three or four years, and writing more consistently, which is more important to me.
Music has taken a slight back burner, although I've done some music for work. Speaking of which, I currently work in IT for the Leon County Sheriff's Office, here in Tallahassee, FL.
