I’ve been writing this thing for three and a half years now. I started blogging because everything I wrote sounded like a business memo, and that just wasn’t a good way to make date plans; now, I can write things that are occasionally amusing. And have long run-on sentences and snarky footnotes.1 Yep, things are moving along.

But, as much as I’d like to complain about minor customer service errors and politics and threaten football team owners in every entry, it’s probably time I tried writing, you know, better. So here’s the plan. A friend gave me this thing, A Writer’s Book of Days. This book has a thing to write about for every day, and I think it would be a good idea if I tried it out. You know, to get out of my comfort zone.

I’ll keep writing about things that particularly strike me, but you can expect a good 3 posts a week that are just from out of nowhere. So, consider this entry some kind of fair warning.2

1 And let’s not even talk about how many times I can use “and” in two senteces. Grammar, pshaw!

2 I actually wasn’t going to write an entry about how I was going to do this, but instead was just going to write today’s assignment. Today’s assignment was “write a love letter” and I figured I’d write one to Drew Barrymore, but that pretty quickly got weird and I figured I should explain what I was doing before both of my regular readers called the men in white coats on me.
