I’m posting daily until YWP launches
(and I’ll explain why)

I’ve been waiting 3 years for The Year Without Pants to launch and I can’t wait any longer.  For the next 17 days I’ll be posting at least once a day.

I have two four reasons.

Reason one: These sorts of stunts rarely excite me as a reader, but as a writer I can tell you one of the strangest parts of the entire enterprise of writing books with publishers is the waiting. And the waiting. And then after the waiting, the psychological challenge of staying excited about a book finished months earlier (and in this case about events that took place even longer ago). I can use a fun way to pass some time.

Reason two: One of the key themes of the book is about experiments and how important they are to just about anything we want to pursue as adults in life. I’ve never done a post-a-day stunt before (starting The Daily Post doesn’t count), and I figure why not. Lets see what happens.

Reason three: The way I blog I often have dozens of draft posts in different states of completion. It’s time to kick some of these clingy adolescent missives out into the world.

Reason four: Maybe you forgot who I am. I’m that Berkun guy? Who wrote that thing you loved and forwarded to you teammates and friends? Well I’m back with book #5!

Stay tuned for more. T-16 days.

  1. Too bad

    “I have two reasons” uh… yeah it looks more like you have four. Typo? :)

      Someday I’ll learn to count.

      I actually fixed this, but apparently that revision never got saved. Anyway, fixed now. Thanks for catching it.

  2. Too bad

    Hmm. Did the plan change? Didn’t post on the 5th, 7th, 8th, or 9th, unless you were talking about places other than your own blog. Or maybe those days don’t count?

    Looking forward to the book, but you’re hurting your credibility here. :)
