As some of my friends and readers know, I’ve been batting around the idea of doing an Autumn Writing Project in the same general vein as my Summer Music Project. That’s great and all, but let’s take a look at my writing output for 2008 so far.
Go ahead, check out the archives for the past dozen months or so. It won’t take long.
One of the goals I set myself was to avoid creating a guaranteed failure situation. Which is to say, I don’t want to (yet again) begin something that I know I can’t actually finish, then beat myself up because I don’t finish it. Self-perpetuating negativity should be avoided, yes?
So. The project isn’t dead, but it’s on hold indefinitely until I can accomplish something else that’s been nagging me for quite a while now: I want to get back into the habit of writing here again. Once I’ve proven that I can actually write on a regular basis and at a consistent level of quality, then I’ll think about taking on something a bit more challenging.
And that’s how I’m turning a morose and dreary Monday mindset into something a bit more positive. Go, me!
