This post is a part of an ongoing series entitled MIP (Man In Progress). After my 25th Birthday I decided to improve three aspects of my life (my physical well-being, my writing career, and my romantic relationships). My philosophy is that a writer’s work and his life are irrevocably intertwined and in order to improve one we inevitably have to improve the other.
Since today’s my Birthday, I’ve decided to take a break from C2C’s new series Words On My Radar.
Instead, we’ll be reviewing C2C’s Man In Progress series for this past year. Enjoy!
much “AHHH, I’m 27! Where has the time gone?”
P.S. Today’s post only covers the second year of my MIP pledge. If you would like to see how I did during the first year of my MIP pledge, please read: The Courage To Start Again From The Very Beginning (MIP Progress Report 2010-2011). That post provides links to every post in the MIP series during my first year of taking the pledge.
