Last year, I challenged myself to read 52 books in 52 weeks. Some time in late August, I realized I had only read 11 books. So I put the pedal to the metal. In the end, I reached about 43. I was short of my goal, but I had a good final stretch there.
In 2012, I signed up for Julie Hedlund's 12 x 12- write 12 picture books in twelve months. Well, we are more than halfway through the year, and I am at... uh, let me see here... um, that would be zero. (Okay, my writing partner would argue that we have one very rough first draft. but I don't like it enough to count it)
Can I still do it? It's possible. I wrote many a term paper in the wee hours of the morning.
But then again, there was no Internet in 1986.
