SoCS & JusJoJan the 1st – Resolve


I know what you’re thinking.

Is that actually Linda? Like, writing a real post? On her blog?

And the answer is yes. ‘Tis me. The great and powerful LindOz.

Who we all know was never great nor powerful at all.

Ah, I’ve missed stream of consciousness writing. Can’t delete it now. It’s the rule.

So I’m resolving to do my best to participate in JusJoJan every day. My posts might all be stream of consciousness, for the simple reason that it means I don’t have to plan what I’m going to write.

Because planning what I’m going to write makes my brain ache these days. Since November 1st, I’ve written more than 90K words, and I don’t plan to slow down much.

Aside from my resolve to post this month, my resolve for the year is to publish at least three books, plus a weekly serial I’m writing under a secret pen name. 5K words on each of 52 weeks. I’ve written almost half of it, but I plan to write at least three quarters of it before I start publishing.

Is all this an actual resolution? Like, a new year’s resolution?

I suppose by definition it is.

But I’m almost superstitious about those. I don’t think I’ve ever actually followed through with one.

So let’s not call it that.

  1. Whether you write every day OR publish specific word count everyday, has, to my mind? LONG been the same thing – When I don’t ‘publish’ here, there, yonder on me own fronts? All I have to do is look at my time stats, for my clients – then? “Ta-DA!” I published (X billion words, as a ghost writer on websites, this past year, thus? Hell Yeah I WROTE! I just don’t have a published book of me own, yet – – – LOL) But, then, that’s just me – I put into my own perspective on why I go MIA from here – I didn’t even include my little rants/pithy posts in social media land when I get tired and think, ‘well, i can at least connect/catch up over here – I don’t have a creative muse bone left in me for today….but I can read…” LOL – i read, then I write – none of it worth publishing – even if it’s actually published forever, in cyberland – – – LOL


  2. I stream of consciousness practically everything….if I didn’t I’d never blog …..💜💜💜

  4. That is a ton of writing! Since I’m still settling into my new apt I haven’t done much for a week and no internet to send it.
