At this point I don't really have a vision for the blog in the coming year. I may put up more film reviews. Maybe some comic ones too. I plan to re-read Grant Morrison's Animal Man, a greatly unappreciated work, and Stephanie Brown's Batgirl run, also greatly unappreciated. Maybe I'll write something up about them.
Creatively, I intend to spend much of 2012 researching a novel I've been turning over in my head for some time now. It takes place in ancient Greece and I've put together a good reference library. Now I just need to familiarize myself to the point that I feel comfortable in that world. I've also collected up all the extant dramatic and comedic works of Greek theatre, there aren't that many, in order to get a feel for their storytelling. Apart from the plays, there isn't much besides Homer and Hesiod. By the summer I hope to be at work on a proper outline.
I am also busy with my church right now. We have just merged with another church, which is quite a story in itself, but a story for another time, and we're spending a lot of our energy ensuring things get off to a smooth start. Its something everyone wants, but making it a reality will take work.
