Tradition demands to start the New Year withs some fancy vows. “Resume going to the gym”. Or “replace the kitchen faucet” . That kind of thing. Familiar with the exercise? Aware of the futility? Thought you would be. Probably a shared trait, among sapients, across solar systems.
Three weekly runs at the gym are fun. They do happen. With or without vows. Whereas that faucet… It does look bad. Duly noted. Ever since we moved in. A couple of years back. But it just looks bad. No leaking. It can be considered ecologically sustainable. Why replace it, now?
Instead of participating in the vow exercise I have decided to start the year by breaking with a tradition.
This site was created to keep my fiction writing well apart from my day job. I make a surprising amount of money generating non-fiction. Theres is also an abundance of calls and meetings involved. And some walking around an office building. To fetch drinks and cookies, to attend meetings, or to combine both activities. And the occasional bout of thinking. But my output basically consists of non-fiction.
The last thing I need, in my spare time, is duplicating my day job. Especially without getting paid for it. Non non-fiction writing.
So far, so rationale, so implemented. Since 2014. No non-fiction pieces for other platforms.
