This is an amazing image to start the new year off right, don’t you agree? This is Dragon Year by Malaysian deviantartist Meoon, and it was created back in 2012, which was the Year of the Dragon according to the Chinese Horoscope. We’re just finishing up the Year of the Monkey, and we’ll be entering the Year of the Rooster on January 28, 2017.
My plan for the coming year is to keep featuring great artists and posting awesome dragon art on this site, so I hope you forgive my brief hiatus since November. Unfortunately, I have a lot going on right now, so I won’t be posting daily, but at a minimum, I’ll showcase new artwork once per week, and we’ll see how it goes from there.
I’m also going to get back to writing, of course, and when I have another Neeka Story chapter or an update on my novel progress, I’ll be sure to let you know that as well. And I’m already planning to tackle daily posting again for the month of April, when I plan to take on the April AtoZ Challenge once again, so stay tuned for that madness!
Here’s another great piece by Meoon called Dragon and the Rider:
You might have noticed that I’ve made a few changes to the site overall, including updating my About Me page and springing for the “no ads” plan this year, and I will continue to make a few tweaks here and there as we fly into 2017. I’ve even set up a Facebook page and a Twitter account (@WritingDragonsB) to make it easier than ever to follow me and receive the latest updates. I’ve been told that connecting my page with these social media sites will let people like and share my posts with greater ease, so I’d appreciate it very much if you’d give it a try and let me know!
Nothing like jumping right back into it with a full post, eh? 🙂 It’s nice to be back to it, and what really spurred me on was a page from my new calendar, surprisingly enough. This year I went with a Sellers Publishing inspirational boxed daily calendar called Seize the Day. “Let the spirit of Robin Pickens and her vivacious combination of colorful art and encouraging words energize you throughout the year in this uplifting daily calendar,” the description reads, and I was certainly uplifted on January 2:

Isn’t that the truth! I’m tacking this on my wall so I can see it every day, and I hope it will keep me going when I lose my nerve again, which is sure to happen again in the future, but I’ll work hard to push through! I’ll be sharing more of these as the year goes on I’m sure, but for now, I’d better wrap this up.
Thank you so much for reading, and I wish you all a very happy new year! Take care, and stay creative!
