2016 has passed and from it`s ashes 2017 rises
Tried to do a poetic phoenix thing with the title and it came out kinda meh. So it`s a new year as I assume most of you know. Seems like this last year want by quite fast, and it`ll be interesting to see what the next year has in store both globally and in my own life. This post isn't really anything just gonna reflect a bit and ramble on about plans.
I posted in my progress journal today talking about my writing plans for the new year. I`m keeping it to small projects for now, since between graduation upcoming and transitioning to college not I`ll have the time to devote to larger projects atm. I mentioned in the journal about a old historical fiction contest I won in the past. I suppose you could say my New Years resolution is to get back to the version of myself that was able to at least attempt something like, rather then the one who slacks off and sits around in self pity.
I`ve been considering the projects to start this upcoming year with. Writing wise I have a editorial type thing and a short story using a cast I`ve had in my back pocket for a bit. I`ve had the idea for a crew of drifters taking odd jobs that would fit into a firefly style world for a while now. I need to figure out a plot line to put them in but I have the cast and the main ideas of the world set up so we`ll see what comes of that. The editorial project is something that's been on my mind for a bit. As someone who`s went through the US special education system as a student and who has spoken to various people on both sides of the system and I just want to write something up about what I view as flaws in how we handle special education and how kids are falling through the crack. I also may be betaing for some people.
Outside of writing, I think i`ll stick to where I`m at in terms of my photography not really taking on any new projects though I do have a new set of old trolley car photos that I may try to get put up somewhere, probably the same gallery I had stuff in before though there is a few coffee shops and restaurants that hang local art but I don`t know if they`d really fit. Outside of photography, a friend of mine are considering dabbling in the youtube realm so we`ll see how that goes.
As far as this blog itself goes, I've never really known what to do with this though I may use this space for some writing prompts of sorts to keep the cob webs out. May type something up, next week or so. This upcoming year should be interesting with a lot of personnel changes in the later half of it, here`s to making this New Year a good one.
Kinda rambled on there for a bit.
