ugh, been a LONG time…

…and I know no one is following this blog, but whatever! it’s a new year and I’m going to try to write a page per day this year.

Why?

Well I’ve been meaning to write for ages now, it’s part of my Day Zero Project (101 goals in 1000 days, which ends on my 40th birthday later this year) to write a few short stories, but I haven’t been doing anything about it.

Plus, I saw a video yesterday (here) where a woman tells a man she’s not a writer and he says to her “It’s easy, just do a page a day, and at the end of a year you’ll have 365 pages”. That struck a chord with me somehow and so I decided I would give it a shot. If nothing else it will let me get some practice in and I’ll see how good I am when I attempt to re-read what I’ve done!

I haven’t decided yet how to do the writing. I’ll probably do it on Google Docs so I can work on it from various locations or at least make notes on my phone, but I’ll decide later if I put up the pages or chapters on this blog for general viewing.

About Frank

A Yank by birth, I moved to the Midlands of England from sunny Southern California at the beginning of 2004, after living in California for 7 years and San Antonio, Texas for 16 years before that. I'm a lifelong reader, a tabletop gamer, a wannabe writer (although I rarely write!) and am constantly interested in, and fascinated by, everything. I'm still learning about British culture and things after 10 years, and still enjoy my odd bit of Americana, which my friends and co-workers have hopefully come to terms with.
