Dr. Menlo has a new blog with a scary premise, or is it a year-long April Fools joke?

Timelock: if by April 1st, 2005–one year from the formal launch of this site–I don't sell a book, script, ten short stories, get a play produced or get a decent job writing, I will commit Hari-Kiri live on the net. Sounds gimmicky, doesn't it? This is the daily one-year journal of that gimmick.
