I don’t make new year’s resolutions, but I set a goal for myself of mailing a submission every day for the month of January. The reasoning behind this is two-fold. One, I simply want to get my submission number higher, and this is a good way to do it, and two. I’m hoping to increase my habit of submitting on a regular basis. I set myself two guidelines for this. One – if I miss a day, which will happen, I have to make it up. Two – I can’t work ahead, or “bank” submissions. If I submit extra, great, but I can’t go ahead and do the following day’s early*. So far I have missed one day, which I have made up, and have a total of six submissions for five days. Now to just maintain the numbers for the month.

*I count the day ending at midnight for this, so I can submit one day’s before midnight and the next day’s after midnight – a concession I made because of my schedule.

  1. Write or Die!!! It really is a maxim to live by… unless you’re a zombie writer. I confess, I haven’t seen many pictures of you lately, but as your daughter hasn’t mentioned a horrible odor emanating from your room, or lamented the fact that you seem to be lacking pulse or breath, I will assume you are not a zombie writer. So I say to you… live. Live and write… now. đŸ˜‰

     
  2. Funny–I had the same resolution–but failed.
