Well. Another week, another update. Are you bored with my ramblings, my posturing? I’m not doing this for anyone else’s benefit. I’m not posting updates with my successes so that I can show the world how great I am (that’s just a bonus!), but rather it’s all a part of the process for me. The routine is in place, and the updates are part of that routine. Accountability, which I’ve talked about often enough before, is still one of the major driving forces in my continued success.

I’m doing this for me, but I’m doing it because of you. And in so doing, maybe you’ll find some inspiration and motivation to get yourself up and moving on something you always wanted to do. Learn to draw, learn to sculpt, learn to ride a bike. Finish that course on Russian you started. Go back to school for game design. Enroll in a technical college or trade school. Start exercising. Start blogging. Write that novel. Carve that turkey. Whittle that wood.

it’s all routine and accountability. Get it going and keep it going, folks.

And remember, writing is a skill. So write the hell on, writers.
