The Forcible Organization of Ducks

September 17, 2008

The past thirty days have been all about getting my ducks in a line. They’re looking pretty roughed up, but there they are: a neat row of disgruntled quackers, all muttering about the heck I’ve put them through to clear the way for my new career.

It won’t be long before I can tell my boss what the plan is, and feel comfortable writing more openly on this blog.

    More writing is good news, as I’m enjoying what you are putting out now.

    Thanks, Pete! I really appreciate your support.

    I’d say sell all the duck to a Chinese place and get yourself a few good strong sled dogs instead. They can pull more and longer than ducks. And they are much less likely to become disgruntled, in fact they like to be in a row or two.

    Great. Now I have to figure out what to do with a sled dog metaphor. Let’s see: the dogs represent writing talent, ability to set goals, knowledge of copywriting, etc., and the sled, of course, is the business itself. Yukon, ho!

    If stops along the Iditarod trail are my interim goals, I am now leaving Anchorage, with financial self-sufficiency being Nome.
