How the Nag Came to be

Help others achieve their dreams and you will achieve yours.
- Les Brown

Today is my seven-month blogiversary. According to an article I read most blogs have a six-month life span and there's more than 7,000,000 blogs out there. I'm not ready to give up my blog just yet. Although I could see where daily blogging could burn you out quickly. Yesterday Jim's post got me thinking...what do I have to say that hasn't been said before?

My blog evolved out of my nagging emails to my fellow writing buddies. It wasn't enough that I was in a critique group that was only 2 days a month, what about the rest of the time who would keep me accountable? I thought a daily blog would at least put me in front of the keys everyday and so far, it's worked. I completed all of my 2007 writing goals and surpassed my submission goals. And what do I have to say that hasn't been said before? Probably not much, it has all been said before but I hope that something I write someday could spark someone to achieve their writing dreams. Gentle nagging, stop surfing the net, set your goals, take small steps, you can do it, I'm looking forward to hearing about your successes, now get back to work!
