Allyn, where have you been?
I know. I have yet to be much of a storyteller as of late.
Let's briefly talk about Seth Godin, who has written a blog post daily for the past 9,458,969 days. Ok, that's a gross exaggeration, but it is something like 2+ decades, so it might as well be 9.5 million days.
How does he do it? I haven't searched out the direct answer (of which I am sure there is one), but I imagine it is like any of us would; one pant leg at a time. Except when he puts on his pants, he makes gold records. I love a good SNL reference.
That being said, I think one of his recent blog posts indirectly sums it up nicely:
It ends up being a situation where you see if you can write today, then tomorrow, then the week, month, etc., and when you stop to look back, you are a millionaire in blog years.
Although my ambition is a bit more pragmatic, I will set out to challenge myself to write a post, even if it is only a title and an accompanying sentence, every day for 60 days. Why 60 days? No real reason. It seems not insignificant but realistic. I have done similar personal challenges in the past year or so related to photography and A/V work, which yielded surprising results, so this should be a cinch, right?
Suffice it to say, time will tell.
