Production and consumption

So I’m trying this thing, “Don’t Break The Chain,” which is impossible not to instantly connect to the ominous warnings accompanying the eponymous letters.

But this time I really don’t want to break it, because the concept is that every day I write, I get to mark an X on the calendar.  And as the Xs accumulate, I will, apparently, be increasingly disinclined to see a day sans X, because psychology, and also habituation. Xing my fingers.

On the consumption side, I’m late to the party on Writing Excuses — the podcast, I mean, which is in its seventh season — and I’m finding it useful and enjoyable; nuts-and-bolts of story construction within various genres. I also like the end-of-episode tagline/spur: “You’re out of excuses, now go write.”
