I am now back from my expedition(i.e didn't practice, excused of course) \:D

The sun went down before 5 PM, so naturally, I practiced mentally!

Sign me up!

OK, sign me up. I've never missed a day of practice. When I'm travelling, I bring a MIDI keyboard \:D

I don't need MOYD to keep me motivated but if this motivates others, I'll be glad to help.

Add me to the list. Practicing is not my problem. I enjoy it. Getting me to the piano bench is another issue. When I'm practicing, time flies, and I conclude with a sense of accomplishment. I don't know why I too often don't make time for it.

Hey put me in! But I'll be on holiday's during mid Jan to mid Feb so does that mean I'll be on the excused MOYD?

Sounds like a great challenge!

See you all at the end of next year... hopefully.. \:D

Does anybody know a good blog style site I can use to keep track for myself? Post all my recording and videos on and all that. As well as keeping track of practice, of course.

Count me in. I will need to practice everyday if I am going to accomplish my goals next year. This will help me stay accountable.

OK, judgement call here: I started on December 8 and have been faithful everyday--except Xmas Eve and Xmas Day. Had the 4 and 2 year old grandchildren here plus some "intestinal distress." Really wanted to get to the keyboard--right there in the next room, but just no time to myself. I'll fess up to failure if need be. What do you think? \:\)
Happy New Year and good luck to all in the MOYD list for 2008!

I'm in! Does it count if I can get my six year old son to the bench and not me?? \:\) He started in April 2007 and is doing well, if I can just get him to practice. Six year old boys prefer their trucks and trains rather than practicing their piano lesson.

Sorry you have to play everyday, but we can add him to the list... \:D

I am in again. I tried hard in 2007 but didn't make it. It's 11 a.m. (EST), and I am minutes away from beginning. Happy New Year to all.

Hi Mark,

I debated for a couple of days whether or not to join but count me in too! It sounds like a good motivator for me on those days where I'm not sick or out of town but just feeling rather blah. Hopefully, MOYD 2008 will encourage me to play/practice on those days (which are few and far between).

I just tried to log my first practice but it doesn't appear to have 'written'. Like, I can't see it anywhere and there is generally no trace of it.

Can we look back over our records?

Count me in, too, please. I know I'm cutting it close, dashing in on the first day of the new year. \:\)

Thanks!

p.s. Mark, I've changed my public name, which was "dh" and now I can't seem to find myself on the PW Practice Log. Will I need to sign up again with my new name?

Looks like the last time you practiced was on Jan 1, 2007. \:D

I seem to remember that you had to be very careful to enter the dates correctly on the practice log.

Not sure. I don't run the log. You might be looking at 2007. Make sure you use the right date. I still log in under my old user name...Mark737

I added you to MOYD...
