In Daily GET ON WITH IT

Thanks go to The Sister (aka Boonder) for making today’s update easy. I’ve re-uploaded “In Daily Prayer” to the poetry tab.

In Daily Prayer

You can tell this was not only a Christmas present (Advent wreath in the bottom left corner, anyone?) but an old Christmas present, back when my sister and her husband had only one child. They’re up to three now, but The Sister was good enough to scan this and pass it on anyways when I called, lamenting loudly about how much I hate drawing. I’ll be haranguing IT Guy and his wife for a chance to scan their poem/picture, created the same Christmas this one was – it was a theme year. If all goes well “Lessons in Counting” will be up next week.

Actually, in a fit of pique* – before I called my sister – I almost re-uploaded all of my old poetry today, tired of stretching it out like this. I’ve discovered that not all of the poems conjure any particular visuals to go with them, so I probably will be uploading them a very small handful at a time. There’s a few I have vague picture ideas for, but many of the remaining poems just don’t really lend themselves to illustration. Also, I’m back in I-hate-art mode, probably because I’m gearing up to start illustrating my next picture book project.

In other news that will interest probably no one but me, I’m planning on posting my religious/political poetry on my personal Facebook page, rather than through TheStoryFolder business page like I have been. While my religious (and subsequently political) views form the bedrock of my worldview, I’ve always intended my writing to be for a secular audience. In other words, I’ve never planned on becoming a Christian writer – instead, a writer who happens to be Christian. The religious/political poetry will go up as-is on my site (I really do write poetry for my own pleasure – and when I’m short on cash and need a Christmas present idea), but I’m not planning on promoting them through my business page on Facebook. Thus they’ll go up on my personal page instead.

The distinction is perhaps silly, considering that I write under my real name. Also, that anyone following me on TheStoryFolder Facebook page was invited through my personal page. Still, it helps me to organize my writing intentions in my head, and that is excuse enough for me.


*Clearly I’ve been reading too many historical romances lately.
