All (about) Me

I do not know how long it will take me to write for 10,000 hours (probably about 10,000), but that is the point of this blog—to chronicle 10,000 hours’ worth of writing. Just for kicks, I also plan on reading for 10,000 hours. Why? Well, there are a couple of reasons:

  1. Boredom
  2. Insanity
  3. Narcissism
  4. Masochism
  5. And for the love of reading and writing

About me?  Well the basics are pretty basic:

I was born in one of the Dakota’s; I can never remember which. Seriously, I have to call my mother and ask where I was born periodically. Or look at my passport, whichever is easiest at that particular moment. I love spinach and popcorn. I eat popcorn like a mouse eats cheese, well like how we all think a mouse eats cheese: NONSTOP.

I have a fiance and a dog. Both are pretty great. The dog is named Panda. She looks like a panda, but acts like a pig. She snorts at me when she wants attention. I have a writing degree, which I pretend to use. I abhor technology and my fiance is a tech nerd. Go figure.

If you want to know more check out the blog. Here are a couple posts to get you started:

P.s. On the right side of the blog there is a widget that shows a tally of how many minutes I have spent working towards my goal. 600,000 minutes = 10,000 hours. If you ever want to be depressed, just feel free to look at this number. I like to look at it regularly.

  1. Thanks for visiting my blog and the follow. I like your goal of 10,000 hours. I heard the same expert promise. I don’t know about the reading part, but it’s true for writing and painting. Go for it! Marie

    • Thanks for stopping by. One has to start somewhere and what a better goal than what potentially could take the next 13 years? Anyway I enjoyed your blog, and look forward to delving into it deeper.
