Hello hello, my loves! Wow, it's been a while, hasn't it? I've given up on blogging consistently, but posting daily WRITING TIPS on my Patreon has given me this idea...why not post them on my blog too? I love getting emails with daily blog posts by Seth Godin, and those of you who are my patrons told me you love my daily WRITING TIPS, and you even told me you want a book of them published (working on it).
So. I asked you on Patreon, and you said it's a good idea to give you patrons early access to my posts, and then post them here (the daily writing tips) FOR EVERYONE TO SEE.
What better occasion to start this if not a birthday?
Today my blog turns 6 years old, and here is the very first post, on how to write your novel's first draft in 6 weeks.
If I were to be mathematically accurate, this blog has been going on for two years longer than that, but those two extra years of posts are now gone from it and collected in a file that maybe one day I'll publish—my difficult road out of depression and my process of coming to grips with past trauma and opening a new chapter in my life.
Perhaps this will be yet another new chapter—the relaunching of this blog to motivate you to write every day (and to motivate myself) with quick, short, and hopefully helpful daily posts (if they're not helpful, you have permission to never send me coffee or chocolate ever again—that'll be my punishment).
What do you think? Good idea? Bad idea? Want? Don't want?
HOW CAN I HELP YOU GET WHERE YOU WANT TO BE?
(I know showing up at your door with a cake is one option...another, however, is showing up at your door with an axe, freshly sharpened, raised high in my arms...)
Thank you. I love you. Onward.
