One Thousand Words a Day

'm actually a few days in to my thousand word a day experiment, and it has now occurred to me that the first day's writing probably should have been about what I'm doing and why I'm doing it. Better late than never.

I listened to good interview with Chris Guillebeau, and he said that he sets his daily writing minimum at a thousand words. Stephen King prescribes the same amount to start, and then recommends graduating to two thousand words eventually. Up until now I haven't had a daily writing minimum-I just write whenever inspiration strikes me, or if it hasn't stricken, Sunday or Wednesday nights.

I consider myself to be serious about blogging, but my writing output doesn't really support that consideration. How serious can I be about something that I don't even do every day?

Sleeping Less Than Eight Hours Per Night?

On SEBASTIAN MARSHALL

Got a good question from a reader about sleep. One of my goals is to sleep less than 8 hours/night

Hello, and thanks for inviting your blog visitors to email you directly. I just came across your site today, and got some good reading out of your "top stories" list. What compelled me to write, though, was a trend I noticed on some of your "goals" posts: sleeping less than 8 hours per night.

It caught my attention, because at first glance it looks counter-intuitive. Yet I understand exactly what you mean.

Cut. Return to monologue later. Get to the askin':

How is it working out for you?
