2017 Theme: Discipline

Every December I choose a theme for the upcoming year. In 2016, the theme was reinvention (my own). You can still find those on the site by searching: reinvention. For 2017, I chose the theme discipline.

I’ve never had this much trouble nailing down the practical implications of a theme. My spreadsheet – complete bust. My research – a lot of wandering. Tons of people have written scads about religious discipline, how to discipline children, the writing disciplines of dead authors. How to be disciplined in relationships, including as a wife or a mother – not so much. By the way, NEVER search ‘discipline’ AND ‘marriage’ together. Unless, of course, that’s what you’re into, religiously or physically.

The only way to this theme is straight through it. All that wading, slogging, and plodding – what will it be for? I don’t know. Probably not nothing. Maybe even something.

I have lots of notions and no concrete goals. Metrics? Not so much. I have no great map to discipline, but I will try to draw it as I go.

Author’s Note

Everyone in this writing is fictional, including the narrator. These are not my experiences but those of a fictional writer living in a fictional loft watching fictional videos. On the other hand, I am a real person who thinks lofts are somehow exotic and videos are overrated media.
