Day 184. Six Months

It’s hard to believe, but it’s been six months since I started “three hundred sixty-five“, on August 7, 2012.  Six months!  Half a year.  I’m at the midway point.  Very slightly beyond, in fact.  Okay, a day or two beyond.time flies  But still.

Some days I find have a lot of ideas. So I write them all up, save them, and publish them sequentially, each new day. This is really helpful for those days when I know I will be too busy to carve off a few hours, to write a post.

This has never been a problem.

Until yesterday.

I wrote and posted Friday’s story, first thing Friday morning. Just as I was about to shut down my computer and have breakfast, an idea came to me. So I wrote it up and saved it, for yesterday.
