Taking Account

I’ve been super-busy over the last couple of months moving house. Things are starting to get back to normal, and I watched some TED talks that got me thinking about the One-Thousand again.

My goal has shifted from writing 1000 stories by the time I’m fifty to writing 1000 stories before I die. I have 833 stories to go. If I focus and put the effort in, I could probably write a story a month around my current schedule. Doing the math, I see that’s going to take nearly 70 years. I’ll be 120 years old. Odds are against that happening. Two stories a month (which I’m sure I can’t do at the moment) would take 35 years. Odds are better that I’ll see 85 years of age. What I’m trying to say is that I have writing to do.
