Last week I took a breather and missed my deadline. I post on Thursdays around here. This deadline, one post each week, on Thursday, has helped me to stay on track, consistent, accountable. Before, when I was writing and posting whenever the feeling struck me, it was easy to get thrown off course, to find more important things to do than write, edit, and format. My self-imposed deadline, that I’ve been following religiously since April, has changed that. This lengthy intro is just to address the elephant in the proverbial room—that I did not publish anything last week.
