5000 Words A Day…Because I Can

The goal to be more productive is something that most people in business desire—or what most people that do what they love to do desire. It’s even more so for writers I think because our profession is only taken seriously when we’ve actually finished something. There is already the stigma that what were doing is not really work (which I can vehemently disagree with in one whole post alone). Add to that the fact that we are arduously committing effort and time to something where the reward is on the far back end if the reward ever comes at all. That reward is not really getting paid though that can be a part of it. No, the reward is actually finishing whatever it is that we’ve written and getting the thing published. The only way that that is going to happen is if you are cranking out the requisite amount of words to get to the end. That is why it’s so important to set goals in terms of word count. That is why mine has just increased.

RIU – Meechum Forest

When we look up at the stars into the vast space of the universe, we are sometimes struck with a sense of wonder in how everything came to be. Scientists know that the universe is, amazingly, expanding, which has implications.

It is no different with the RIU (Reality Imagination Universe). Though it is currently a small place, it is ever expanding. New discoveries are popping up all of the time. One of those discoveries is a little forest in rural Pennsylvania called Meechum Forest. Today, I explore this place and what its origins may be.
