Thirty in Thirty

Posted by in Navel Gazing and Other Hysterics, Stuff About Writing

When I first started this project, to post 30 times in 30 days, I was nervous. I didn’t think I had enough to say, I didn’t think you wanted to read that much, and I worried that discipline was going to be an issue – that I wouldn’t be able to commit and finish. Well, I have. 🙂 It’s been rough, there have been some pretty weak posts, there were days that were just too busy or where I just forgot – oops!  But, there were only two days this…read more
