Here’s the thing about my October 31 entry. I meant it when I wrote it. This is very hard to do every day. But I’m going to try another 30 days for several reasons:

(1) My father didn’t raise a quitter.

(2) Stopping writing would be admitting I was no longer inspired by the things around me. Lose that, and you’ve basically lost your talent as a writer. I’m not ready to admit that yet, whatever you think of my writing ability.

(3) I still have plenty to say about my wife, daughter, and son.

Let’s do another thirty days.
