Well, okay; maybe not smoking. Pretty cool, though.

The chain I’m talking about is a productivity tool, for writers.
Truth be known, it can equally be used by anyone who has a job that requires sustained output.

The idea is simple.

The Chain is a sequence of numbers, each representing a calendar day.
And, each day you write something new, you cross off a number.
The aim is to sustain a pattern of X’s that doesn’t break.

So – by the end of a calendar year – you’ll have a grid, like the diamonds on a chain-link fence.


And, once you get going, it actually gets easier.
2011, day 19, and I haven’t missed an X, yet.
