My friends Beth (Wytch of the North) and Jolene (Strip Me Back to the Bone) have posted a couple responses to The Pagan Experience Project, a themed blogging effort. I decided to give it a try. I have no idea how long I’ll be able to keep up my efforts on this particular front but I’ll stick it out as long as I’m having fun.
Week 1’s prompt has to do with resolutions. I don’t actually make any. I consider my generalized irresolution as a character flaw and I’ve found that when it comes to fighting the battles of self-improvement, it’s not a good idea to go up against this particular flaw in addition to whatever else I might be trying to change. That said, there are a few things in 2015 I’m looking forward to.
First, I’m looking forward to a successful trip to PantheaCon. I’m excited to reconnect with some people I met last year as well as meeting some new people this year. I’m happy to have polished my presentation and I hope that people enjoy it.
Second, I’m curious to see just where this book making project will take me. In many ways, it’s more sustainable than certain other of my artistic efforts (clothing design specifically). It might even offer greater potential for marketability. This is actually a fairly important concern given that getting rid of the things I make keeps my living space livable. Books take less room to store than fancy gothy clothes, so that’s nice.
Third, I’m tentatively optimistic about presenting at Many Gods West. I won’t hear back if I’ve made the cut for a few months. Being accepted would be an honor; being declined would be a relief. I’d love to go but not having a major financial obligation in the middle of the year would be OK, too.
And finally, I’m quite committed (but not resolved!) to working on the new book. I don’t know when it will be done. There are other writing projects I’m sorta working on but this is definitely the priority.
