I’m a novelist whose work you’ve almost certainly not read, and that’s been kind of a problem for me. All I’ve ever wanted to do was tell a story. But between the obscurity and the depression, it’s been tough to stay motivated lately.
Normally I can plow through if I distract myself with a project. Keeping busy with one thing tends to make me busier with another. And while I’m at it, some positivity would help. So what the hell, let’s kill two birds with one stone.
This blog is my attempt to write about something worth celebrating every day for at least one year. And after that year’s up, who knows. Maybe I’ll keep doing daily updates. Maybe I’ll celebrate that I don’t have to do daily updates anymore. (That didn’t work out, I shouldn’t have committed to the bit when I was at my worst. So the new plan is just to post whenever I genuinely feel like today is worth it.)
Anyway, one thing’s for sure: you should buy one of my books.
