I have given up caffeine, and the decision may drive me mad. I'm cranky, I'm tired, and I'm anxious. I need a coke or a coffee. Or perhaps chocolate. But no matter...
In less than two weeks, I will begin writing the story that has been burning in my mind for over a year:
1. I will keep my expectations reasonable and strive for the best I can write, but not perfection.
2. I will attempt to keep my living environment relatively organized, my diet relatively balanced, and my schedule relatively routine.
3. I will consider writing my "job," in the absence of another, and will therefore maintain regular hours.
4. I will not only meet my word count; I will also finish my story.
13 days, and counting
