So, I’m getting closer to Day 365. That will be a year. Like most things that are big, it seems like it was just yesterday, and it seems like it was like 10 years ago. I was watching some videos of when I was leaving, and let me say, worrying about money as I am now, is way easier than preparing to move away from your wife. I’m glad I’m in this February.
So, here’s my plan: I’m going to stop blogging at Day 365.
I’m going to wrap up The Mystery Year. It will have been a year since I journeyed off to Los Angeles. You know what? Blogging every day is difficult when you’re closer back to real life. I threw my life up in the air a year ago, and I still haven’t put everything back together in a new way, but I’m busier than I was in LA.
I have four thoughts as I near the end:
1. I never would have thought I would go a year. Commitment is not my strong suit. I think it may say something about how I feel about writing.
2. I want to keep blogging, just not everyday. I may form another site that I keep up with twice a week or something. I just like the idea of tying the blog up neatly instead of fading out.
3. I have a couple of announcements possibly coming up, so I may just have to post a couple more times sometime soon. Intrigued?? No? How about now?
4. I would like to publish The Mystery Year as a book. I know there are websites that help you turn blogs into books, but I don’t know much about them. I also have zero experience in self publishing a book. Does anyone know anything along those lines? Or, maybe you, random reader, know a publishing company that is looking for a fantastic blog turned book that one, maybe two, handfuls of people will purchase.
I think it could work as a book. I would read it…all the time…in public…and then laugh and laugh so people ask me what I’m reading, and I could explain it to them…and how much it costs…and that I’m not the guy in it, just a big fan…who looks like the guy in it.
So, the clock is ticking, get new Mystery Year posts while you can. Oh, and tell all your friends that have blocked me from their Facebook news feeds, I’m almost done.
