The Journal, Saturday, November 11

Hey Folks,

To all the veterans out there and the spouses who support them, I hope you have an enjoyable and thoughtful Veterans Day. Or as we in the Marine Corps call it, Hangover Day. (grin)

I’ll be back with regular, longer posts beginning on Monday, so thanks for hanging in there with me.

It’s been something around 3 years since I started this, and most of you have been here from the beginning.

Then I broke the streak (not sure how long it even was) and started again almost two years ago. In 16 more days, this blog will have posted every day for two years without missing.

Of course, DWS has gone around 1400 days without missing. (I checked his blog yesterday, but didn’t find the running total he used to post.)

But other than his and mine, are there any other daily blog posts out there about writing? Just curious.

Back tomorrow.
