A promise to myself

I said in an earlier post that I'm looking for a netbook to replace my mac that is insistent on destroying itself.  But I need to make a promise to myself if I'm going to make such a huge purchase. 

I have to write something that is at least either a page long or complete EVERYDAY that I have this netbook.

Writing is a hobby that you have to make into a habit, something that you have to continue doing every day.  And I'm not doing it enough.  I figure with a laptop that I can actually take places, I should be able to keep to this habit and refine my skills, let alone get back to all the projects I have put to the wayside. It's a lot of project guys, and I'm determined to start working on ALL OF THEM.

Yes, my job is kind of sucky right now, and I'm looking for a new one.   But as a resident told me a while ago, that's the second job.  The writing is the dream.  How am I going to achieve it if I never do it?

So readers, I know I've given you this right before, but please feel free to nag me about it.  When I get the netbook, remind me to write.  Every. Single. Day.  Should make more blog posts on top of that if that happens.

In the meantime, back to the grind.

  1. I can dig it. I got a Netbook (my first portable computer) the other year, and never did much writing on it like I planned to. I mostly blamed the small keyboard (i can type 60 a minute, but not on a netbook). As my netbook has become pretty virus ridden, I got a decent Laveno laptop with a nice full keyboard on it a few weeks ago. Twice the cost of my Netbook. And I hardly use it. I gotta start having that thing with me and doing some writing every day. Such an investment, so I gotta get movitaved.
