(and here’s mine)
I, Victor Powell, aka BookWorm, being of sound mind and body,
do solemnly commit to keep my grousing to myself for the period
of one year. This stuffing of a sock into my mouth includes, but is
not limited to, whining about all matters related to the writing and
the publication of my work. I will not grumble, I will not cry,
I will not moan, I will not whine, I will not complain,
I will not stick my head in the stand, I will not say woe is me.
So help me God.
Instead, I will turn my whining into energy for writing.
