It’s been 15 days since I started the 60 Days, 60 (+) Posts initiative, and things are going very well. In those 15 days, I have posted 24 blog posts, and have managed to switch domains for the blog.
This initiative has gotten me in the mood to do more writing, as well as writing more often about subjects I would normally keep completely internalized.
How about some stats:
- 24 posts in 15 days
- 5 chapters of Dimenxia (handwritten 10 pages, front and back)
- All of my homework
- Assignments ahead of time for class
I think the advances in each of these areas is really due to the fact that I am out here writing every chance I get. I even have been writing things down that I want to blog about, so that I can sit down at the end of the day and put something out there.
If everything goes at the current rate, my first manuscript rough draft of Dimenxia could be completed by the end of 2008. This is a huge achievement, since I’ve been writing this thing on and off for well over 5 years. I know my wife will be excited to sit down and read the story from cover to cover, since she’s only heard and read bits and pieces of the saga over these 5 years.
Overall, I’m getting very excited about moving projects forward, and the prospect of getting some of them completed and out of the way, so that I can start digging into my Someday/Maybe file.
If you are a writer, programmer, or just a general person, I would suggest that you set a simple goal for yourself, as I have done with the 60 Days, 60(+) Posts, and go out there and make yourself feel better as you strive for those loftier goals in your life. It has surely helped me on my road, and I think it could help anyone else of the same persuasion.
