It amazes me to think I’ve been blogging for the better part of four years. I started this blog in 2014 but didn’t really start posting regularly until August of 2015. And when I look back I think: man this blog is a mess. Rather than have a fixed format, I have managed to post about everything under the sun (except religion and politics – which will stay that way). But this was supposed to be a WRITING BLOG!!! Ehhh… I am too interested in too many things to focus. Luckily, you beautiful people haven’t seemed to mind. I finish 2018 with over 3300 followers and a nice group of regular commenters and friends. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!
So what is the plan for the easily distracted author/artist in 2019? Is there a plan? Can I even stick to a plan with all the big changes next year will bring? Probably not. However, what I’d like to do is….
- Concentrate on my series Inhuman. I would like to turn this rough draft into a novel. For those of you reading along, please offer constructive criticism, including flagging me on inconsistencies and mistakes. Be truthful. I can take it and your feedback is very valuable.
- As a result, I will probably write fewer essays on The Great War. I am still reading and researching for the very delayed (I should be ashamed of myself) Here Lies a Soldier so I will share some of the gems I uncover.
- Poetry: it seems to have returned to me so that might appear more often.
- Art: I will ‘Draw Adventurously’ again but maybe not so frequently. Also, I’ve been painting a lot more and just ordered new brushes and a supply of canvases so I may subject you to that in the new year.
Ah, but the best laid plans (if you can call that a plan) of mice and Meg often go awry. 2019 brings big changes personally and a big move geographically. I’m not making any promises. However, if you hang in there with me during this tumultuous time, I’ll be eternally grateful!
All the best to you and yours at the conclusion of the year! Love Meg!
Also that’s my latest painting in the header image.
