Jason Good just wrote “Day 365.” He blogged every day for a year. A. YEAR.
I don’t even brush my teeth every day. But sometimes I brush them five times in one day, so I think it evens out.
I’d like to write a blog post every day for a year. However, I have some censorship issues related to publishing under my own name (big hello to my non-family who I’m sure still read this stupid thing, hoping I’ll out myself as a dick, AGAIN), and I feel slightly fettered when it comes to just WRITING. I know people are reading this who know me (or THINK they do) and… I dunno.
It’s probably telling that I have no problems whatsoever with sharing the most embarrassing things in my life, but it’s easier somehow to do it in front of a group of people than it is to write it on a blank page that will be seen by maaaaybe three actual people and perhaps a really smart gerbil.
I need to get over that. I need to JUST WRITE, with no audience in mind. Is that easy?
Should I try? I mean, I find myself utterly fascinating, but can I be fascinating for a whole year (plus one day because fuck it’s Leap Year)?
I’ll give it a think tomorrow and maybe we’ll see Monday become my own “Day 1.”
