January 24, 2021 – Day 24


We use milestones so we can measure progress. When I’d start exercising after a long period of inactivity, and my endurance was so bad that I couldn’t get very far – I would measure my progress in tic-tacs. For every 2.5 calories burned, I put a tic-tac in a bottle.

We count the number of words we write, the number of stories we tell, the time we’ve been writing- how long we’ve been working on a story, how long we’ve been with a person.

What’s the proper gift for your 28th anniversary? 29th?
