Ah, Damian.  What’s your excuse this week?

I don’t have one.  I am very disappointed in myself.  I could discuss Australia Day, or the work week, or whatever, but, really – no.

Reading came back, and for that I am pleased.  I suspect that reading is the precursor to writing, and by “suspect”, I mean I am certain.  I strongly believe if I read often and well, the writing will follow.

But let’s see.  We are four weeks down, now, and I don’t really have anything to show.  So I am disappointed in myself.

I will be better.

Each week I aim to provide an update on the Journal of Failure.  These reports are intended to provide an impetus for me to achieve as much as I should/more than I do, and also to provide a further ongoing record of my life, as it is.
