It has been a trying week, but this afternoon there’s been some concrete, forward motion in lots of things that yesterday were merely intractable and distressing. Once all the backlog is done, we can try and make some headway with planning: as means to ease that stress, the post I’ve been trying to write since Friday is consigned to the trash, and good riddance. Honestly, it was rubbish.

Instead, today’s been about organising the way forward for 2020. There’s a shonky graphic, couple of pages of A4 notes, with a plan to start printing stuff for sale in the New Year. After that we’ll have some discussion via Social media on what happens where, a push to get myself a bit higher visibility than is currently the case and then, in January, I’m flirting with the idea of vlogging.

I’ve said it now, it has to happen.

This is to lead into Time to Talk day in February where I’ll be offering a special day’s worth of content, in an attempt to give back a bit to the people whom have stuck by me for I don’t know how long. You’re all really lovely, thank you to everybody who’s ever donated to my fundraising. This year I promise not only will it be different, but challenging too. It’s time to start thinking about your part in this equation.

There will be a fundraising drive this year, with some actual thematic gubbins as accompaniment. The normal features will be back too: short story’s too much fun to stop now, YouTube playlists will have some content to back them up… for the first few months of 2020 we’ll be going back to weekly poetry too, with Instagram going in hiatus until February. More on this in the coming weeks.

For now, I have many things to stick in my 2020 planner 😀
