Writing Goals ... and the New Blog about "The Dark Tower"

Since you've all more than likely noticed my obsession with Stephen King's The Dark Tower and its impact on my philosophy, I've become motivated to start a new blog devoted exclusively to King's work of genius.

On a different note, I have become very much motivated by my online writing peeps to set writing goals for myself. I go on writing jags that are very much like alcoholic benders, and I'm trying to figure out how to pace myself, how to better control my writing, how to increase my writing stamina. I have found that blogging has permitted me to do all of those things.

Therefore, my writing goal is threefold:
1. To post daily on "The Philosophy of KLo" (and continue to enjoy and participate in the amazing discussions my fabulous readers have)
2. To post as often as possible on "Gunslingers and Dark Towers" (I'm not prepared to commit to a number of daily posts ... my insomnia might go away, after all : ))
3. To work on a current WIP (either Novel #2 or a short story) each and every day.

We'll see how this works out ... : )
