With the crushing disappointment of losing the President-Elect of LIANZA election I am implementing Plan B. 🙂
When committing to stand for President-Elect I had to give some thought into what that would entail, and also into what I would do if I was not elected. Thus I have had several plans for the coming year percolating in the background.
Plan A was to win and spend a lot of time and energy on LIANZA business. But alas alack that was not to be. 😦
So Plan B, and what is it.
The first part of Plan B was to resign from the IKAROA committee effective immediately, which I have done. I was a bit nervous about doing that as I thought it may look like I was throwing my toys out of the cot, but I feel it is necessary so as I can put all of my energies now into Plan B.
The rest is long term. I have the following items to work on through the next year:
A: My writing – as some of you know I have really been engaged in my writing, and have just finished the first draft of a novel. I want to try and get that published, and later in the year I hope to put it up as a serialised audio-book on podio-books.com.
B: Diligent room – I intend to devote more time to writing here, and putting up more in-depth articles. Next year I have to submit my re-validation journal as part of the registration process, and as I have not completed it (or really started it) I will be putting up a serious of posts here discussing my progress. Maybe that will help others.
C:LIANZA – By removing myself from the official parts of the organisation I intend to free myself up to be more critical of LIANZA. I have held my tongue on a number of issues and I no longer feel constrained to do that. I am going to be a noisy wheel.
D: Tararua Community Archives – Here in Tararua we currently don’t have any sort of community archives. The main part of my energies is going to be in attempting to form a group to establish an archives. I will be researching and fundraising for that.
So there you go. It’s full tilt ahead.
