A New Year; Let’s Make This One Count

Good day dear reader.

Lots of things happened last year that made 2019 one of the most tumultuous in my memory: I quit my job…twice and am now back at the second place; I spent most of the year learning to drive and passed my test after three failed attempts; I faced a lot of time out of the house and with some serious insomnia along with struggling to keep my weight loss up in the face of all my stress, it meant that my writing and creative goals got put by the wayside.

Don’t get me wrong, I worked on a lot of interesting projects last year, but none of them went nearly as far as I wanted them to. This brings me to the new year. We’re starting a new decade and a lot has been lifted off my shoulders, so as far as I’m concerned, there is no longer any mitigating circumstances that stand in the way of me and my wonderful wife of 12 years (our anniversary was yesterday) achieving some long standing goals.

The SteadmanSociety team want to make 2020 the beginning of an active period in providing content. We have a wide variety of interests and hope to establish an eclectic community of like-minded people who can simply be together to share the ups and downs of life through the mediums we enjoy.

This year we hope to do four things:

  1. Challenge our writing skills by finishing and publishing at least one work of fiction;
  2. Begin streaming on twitch regularly, this will include gaming content, writing content and games development content;
  3. Start posting on our Youtube channel with slice of life updates, mainly just little videos to keep you clued in on how we are doing with our projects;
  4. Reach out to a wider community and hopefully prove we can keep you around!

This is a mission statement that me and Emma have really taken to heart over the holiday period. Christmas and new year are out of the way. It is time to work hard on the things we know we can achieve.

Join us then on our long road, we promise this year will be the best yet for SteadmanSociety.

The New Year

Christmas has come and gone, the New Year is before us. This time between the holidays is often a time of contemplation, a space to re-evaluate what has worked in the past and what we would like to change for the upcoming year. And here at Steadman Society we, too, are reviewing, and change is coming!
Along with fiction, we are branching out into posts about our hobbies, for me that means cross stitch (a new interest), and journaling, for John it is Warhammer and other gaming type things.
I think it’s going to be good for me in particular, a way to write more and to explore new angles of writing in an attempt to become more comfortable.
Over the last couple of months I have found myself slipping back into bad habits when it comes to writing which are stopping me from progressing again. A couple of set backs gave me an excuse and I kept slipping. But the New Year brings a new chance, a fresh start and an opportunity to start as we mean to go on, I mean to take it and to run with it!
For the time between Christmas and the New Year I’m working on getting rid of everything that we don’t use, things that have been sitting in drawers or getting in the way that are just gathering dust. We tried to do this earlier in the year but I always end up stopping or keeping things that I shouldn’t. But this time I am determined, sticking only to art, writing and cross stitch, everything else will be relocated to someone who will use it.
2019 was the year to get our eating habits sorted and to realise where our priorities lie and 2020 is going to be the year of getting things done!

Good luck to you and I hope that you have a wonderful and safe New Years.
