PS365 Goal for 2012

I've spent the last month pondering what to do for this blog in 2012. I knew I wanted to change it up a bit, focus more on writing, find a way to hold myself accountable for writing everyday. Inspiration came by way of a interview I heard on NPR with the illustrator Lou Beach who had dreams of being a writer. In 2009, he began writing a story a day in his Facebook status box, using the maximum character allowance of the box as his maximum story length. Seeing how my own 365 photos of 2010, and the 52 composites of 2011, better honed my skill as a photographer, I figure a story a day with a cap on length is an excellent way to fine-tune my writing skills. At the very least, it will be an interesting journey in learning how to trim the ramblings of an often wordy writer. A story a day for 365 days. Maximum character allowance: 365 (spaces not included). Let the scribbling begin.

Happy New Year everyone!

P.S. I still plan to post photographs. Maybe they'll accompany the stories, maybe they won't. We'll just have to see what the year has in store.
