It seems that the trajectory is up. I read and wrote significantly more this week, which was pleasing – and none of it was bad or “easy” reading or writing. That is, I didn’t take the path of least resistance and read another fantasy book, instead I read two books, one heavy, one not, but both Significant Literature.
And the writing? Well, that was mostly the start of a new project, and the initial impetus of that was exciting and new, so the words came easily. I’ll speak more about it if that continues.
So, a good week. I’m pleased. Still more work to be done, but the numbers are starting to speak for themselves.
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.
