Hold me…

Accountability.

That’s what this is.  Right here.  Right now.  You holding me accountable.

Thank you.

Now let me explain what you’re signing up for.  I am a writer.  It’s what I tell myself.  Sometimes I even tell other people.  But I have this small problem.

Writers write.

Lately there hasn’t been a lot of that happening here.  it’s hard to be a writer if you’re not writing.  So, I’m starting an accountability program.  I have learned I work much better if someone is expecting something from me.  You know, a deadline.  When you’re unpublished (or un-contracted), you have to set your own deadlines.  Evidently I’m not very good at that.  I think I’m too nice of a boss.

So I’m turning to you, whoever you may be, to hold me accountable — to expect something from me.  My goal is to write every day.  It may not be much, but I need to do something daily to get this ball (or book) rolling again.  I will post my progress here daily.

Look for my report.  If you don’t see it, call me out.   Please.

Wow.  This is terrifying.  My hand is shaking as I push the publish button, but it’s time to get to work so I can report something tonight.
