I've mentioned in the past that I want to start writing more. Since this is a new thing for me, I'll be starting off with a modest goal of one post per month. I was hoping to start this last Tuesday – and I almost made it. The post is almost done, but other priorities have come up that are going to force me to wait until next month to start.
In case you didn't already know, I'm a First Class Petty Officer in the Navy Reserve; that's the rank of E-6. Late last week I found out I'm board eligible. That means there is a slight chance of being promoted to chief (E-7). This is my first time going through the process and I'm learning a lot. One of the things I learned over the weekend is that there is a 40-hour course I need to complete by the end of the month. The website was also down until a couple days ago. Most of the time I would be spending on writing, learning, or developing, will now go to getting course that finished up.
That's what happens when you have a lot of things you're involved with. You have to be flexible and roll with things as they come in.
