999 Days of Writing on the Wall, 999 Days of Writing...

More than three years ago, I set out to accomplish writing mastery. To me, this meant applying a yogic metric of doing a daily practice for 1,000 days straight. Miss one? Your ass is back to day 1 tomorrow.

When I started, I lived in the desert with my cat and was getting divorced. I had a Pushcart Prize nomination and several published literary stories but no pro sales in my genre of science fiction and fantasy. I wanted to be a member of SFWA so much I could hardly stand it. Fast forward three years. I live in the lush Emerald City, have the same psycho cat (plus one more), I’m getting married next week to the man I love, and tomorrow—goddess willing—I reach 1,000 days of writing in a row!
