Given my last post’s nature, I don’t think it’s necessary to go into any kind of detail about my ‘milwordy depression’ (basically, even with my participation in Milwordy 2012, my writing habits since november have gone through the floor), but there is a lowdown I need to give on the current situation of things, reiterating some details from my last post:
Basically, I’ve started work on a serial based on an unfinished project of mine in order to get me writing. That, however, was only half the work done: now is the time when I apply some pressure that I hope will prod me enough to actually do something.
Let the records show that the first chapter of my as-yet-unnamed serial will see the light of day as a published post no later than the Sunday January 22nd, 2012.
That was the main point of this post, but there is one more thing:
You. Yes, you. As in, the one reading this. You’re obviously here for a reason, and now I need you to do something for me. You see that comment box down below? That text entry box way down there between the post and the bottom of the page? I now ask you to leave me a comment, but not a particularly nice comment. I ask for a comment that offers encouragement without niceness. For clarification: leave me a comment in that comment box that reads something along the lines of
“Iker, you have until Sunday to deliver that post you promised. Fail, and face erasure.”
Perhaps not exactly like that, but something that evokes that general idea. Remember, I ask this of you as a favour from writer to reader, independently of whether you’re one of my followers or your intangible spirit was led to this page via some unfathomable eldritch machination. I ask you to force me to do it,and by doing so, help me do it.
