books.guardian.co.uk:
More than 100,000 books are published every year in the UK. Some go on to become multimillion bestsellers, the vast majority do not. Oliver Burkeman follows the 18-month-long journey of one novel, from the author’s flash of inspiration in a pub, to the moment it hit the shelves at Books Etc

Day after day

June 22, 2005 on 3:30 pm | In Uncategorized | No Comments

It’s nice to try a life that is not that same old “home-work-home” way that almost everyone live in this fast paced life that the common human being live these days.

I was at the Bloomsday celebration last thursday, here in Curitiba, at Fnac. It was nice and I could learn a few more things about James Joyce and Ulysses. In the last couple of weeks I’m doing a literature deep dive, reading a lot and writing 2,000 words every day, come hell or high water. This remembers me about an interview where Dave Sim was asked what he did to accomplish a big job that was Cerebus, a 300 issue comic book that took 25 years to complete. The answers? a page a day.

That’s the same answer that I’ve heard from prolific writers like Stephen King (One word at a time), and many others. Every work that you commit yourself to do can be finished if you deserve a time to do a piece of it, every day, day after day.

Well, let’s start page 140 of my work. Just 160 to go… :-)

30 days running

June 5, 2005 on 6:33 pm | In Blog, Esportes | No Comments

Today I took my 30th running session. For 30 days, I runned every day no matter what. In the sun, cold, rain or with my left foot hurting. It was my challenge that I took based on the 30 days to success blog entry. It was a very good challenge and a interesting way to test endurance. Try your 30 days to success!
