Okay, okay, it’s a book nobody would buy but it proved something to me that I needed to have confirmed despite my Creative Writing Instructor’s saying the same. A page a day for one year = a book.
A few days ago, I reached 365 posts on my e-log here on WordPress.com, today is 370. This means I can actually write a book in a year since I achieved this in approximately 9 months!
Oh, I know, I know, some of my posts weren’t really posts, rather a video share or something but then in other posts, I went on to make up for it with redundancies that spared me having to repeat myself as often as I repeat myself… :)
What this proves is that I really can finish my fifth book in a year (the first four are not fit for more than campfire starter, seriously… even if I revise them, it will just be a better campfire starter, no joke).

Life interrupts me. I was thrown off course again recently but I am almost back in the saddle with horse power on roar.
So, I’ll try to keep my e-log posts to one a day (no no no, that sounds like vitamins or something else one must do, don’t want must do’s, want lots of want to’s! lol). If I miss a day here or there, just know I’ll be back. Probably with more to say than I intended to write or you intended to read.
Meanwhile, dear readers and e-logger community, my writer friend Cathleen Chance Vechiatto has a new term for blog since we agreed we both dislike it so. She likened it to something teenaged boys spit out and I have always disliked it, didn’t even want to admit I was a “blogger” so left that out wherever possible, still do and just say my writing page. Until Cathleen so graphically described it, I never even knew why I didn’t like the term. But it’s too close to something green in the nose for me, that’s why.
I told my friend we should work on developing something new. She replied recently to say she has it: e-log. Thanks, Cathleen, I love it!
I love it so much, I’m going to employ the term whenever I can. What do you think or do you have a better idea?
