Gerry, over at Vicious Cycle, found some stats I never knew existed. One was a yearly word count… I added mine up. I think I might break two million this year. I’m currently sitting at 1,889,435 words, not including this post. Going by my average yearly output, I should hit two million by the end of the year, maybe a little after the new year. There are two ways of looking at this. One, I’m awesome and I’ve got a lot of give a shit to keep producing the way I do. If that’s what you think, thank you! I’m going to look at it that way, methinks… Because the second isn’t as sexy. The second is, I’m a nut for continuing to work this hard without getting paid to!
Well, there is that, but there’s an explanation that goes with this that makes it all understandable and worth while. First, the cycling stuff I write about is purely for fun. I write about bikes and cycling because writing about cycling makes me happy. Second, and most important, I believe writing about recovery makes a positive difference in the world. I believe I’m doing my part as a recovering person to help others. The truth is, if what I write helps a handful of people enjoy their recovery, or better, recover in the first place, well I’ll continue with a smile on my face. It’s worth it.
More later as I get closer to 2,000,000.
