The Power of a Streak
Seven Years Without A Miss…
Blog post every day, 365 days a year for 7 full years.
2,555 days. No misses.
Going for another year.
I have at the moment a bunch of lectures to finish on myths, a book on Trademark to post here chapter-by-chapter, a bunch more monthly workshops to talk about, and some silly stuff.
So I’m going forward. But I had to nod at today as it went past.
Sickness, travel, moving, building a business, internet outages, and a half-billion novels (or some people think I wrote that many), I never missed a day. I was even in the hospital at one point.
And now the writing is coming back up after this last year-plus life roll and I want to keep this blog going. See if I can make it a few more days, maybe another month, maybe another year.
Maybe even report daily on a writing challenge or two. We shall see.
Another day, another blog.
The power of a streak is really something.
As someone who’s been around for maybe 1/2 that streak, it’s been a fun ride, Dean!

And I read every one of your blog posts. And learnt so much about the business of writing. Thank you.

I hope I have read every one of your blog posts. I continue to learn so much from you. Thank you for taking the time to do these posts!
It’s been an awesome 7 years and for me, it started with slaying the cows. At present, I check in almost every day to “get Deanified.” Getting Deanified really means getting my butt in gear and doing productive work instead of fussing over sales or seeing in anyone on FB “said anything.”
Your streak is my Jiminy Cricket 🙂
