Puzzle Projects

First a quick update: I haven't written here for a little while, which feels a bit personally disappointing.  I suppose part of it reflects my continuing malaise within the puzzle community. As I've previously said, it used to be a place where I thought I fit in, and increasingly I am made to feel as if I do not.  The best way I can describe this is that any enthusiasm I have for the puzzle community has been blunted by expediency, apathy and lethargy.

About this time last year I outlined that I'd like to try and work on a bunch of different puzzle projects as a way of trying to get back into the swing of things.  In some ways it was going to be part of my own recovery, but for a number of reasons none of them really happened.  The main thing to say is that I haven't forgotten about them, and I would like to try and make them happen.

Recently I have been thinking about what a week-long online global festival of puzzles might look like. And yes, I have been corresponding privately with some relevant people before you ask, dearest reader.  But I'd also like to share the sorts of things I would hypothetically like to see.
