Ok, now that I have the mandatory acknowledgement of the new year out of the way, what say we get down to business? I’m toying with the idea of making 365 posts this yea: one each day. Ok, to be fair, that would mean 366 posts, since it’s a leap year.
Geez, why would I do that? Why would I commit myself to creating a semi-readable post every day for the next year? That’s a lot of posts. Three hundred sixty-six. If I had a quarter for every post, I could take my family out for a non-matinee 3-D movie and get everyone snacks and a drink. We did that once. It was $100. For “Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs.” Worth $100? I don’t know. We’d been planning on going to a small amusement park, but since my son broke his arm earlier in the day, we went to the movies instead.
Anyway, I’m still trying to decide if I am going to do this post-a-day thing or not. If I do it, I might call it “Afternoons with That Nolen Chick,” because the point would be for me to sit down after lunch every day and write a post. Like now, for instance. It’s not actually January 1, 2012, but December 29, 2011. It’s 12:58 and I’m riding shotgun in the SUV as hubs drives us back to his mother’s house from our short stay in a neighboring state visiting with other family. But it’s the afternoon, and I’m writing, so it counts.
It sounds equally crazy and ambitious, this daily writing thing. But maybe that’s what I need this year – crazy ambition, ambitious craziness. I think I’ll go with the latter because it sounds more fun and less “Wall Street cut-your-heart-out.” Wanna come on the crazy train with me?
