Christmas Day 2010

People who read blogs on Christmas Day are losers.

Haha, take that hypothetical readers. People who write blogs on Christmas Day are, of course, amazing paragons of inspiration. I was going to write something about inspiration, but it sounds less depressing when I quote somebody else who got to the thought first and more pithily:

"If you need inspiration, think of yourself on your deathbed saying “well, at least I watched a lot of TV.” If saying such a thing as your life ebbs away fills you with existential horror, well, then. I think you know what to do." - John Scalzi

One day I hope to have a 12-year backlog of daily posts. It's not so much a goal as it is an obsession, now.

Merry Christmas! I'll be writing.

250 words? Yes

  1. I'm a loser and a paragon of of inspiration.
    Feel kind of bad for that sad bear. Where did you find that picture??

  2. It's from Nedroid, a webcomic. Do a search for "Sad Bear Nedroid" and you'll see a whole series of increasingly depressing bear situations. It's fun!

  3. I posted on Christmas day, but it was scheduled several days in advance. I didn't actually touch the net on Chrismtas, and only got about 400 words of writing done. I might have done more, but I was so exhausted from my cold and a long day that I was content with just a minimum so I wouldn't break my streak.

  4. 400 words is 400 words, I always say. This post was technically scheduled a few days in advance, but then I rewrote it for...goodness' sake
