Inspired by Julie Powell, author of Julie and Julia, Matthew Sanborn Smith decided to bite off more than he could chew in front of the largest audience he could find at the time. He vowed to write 1,000 stories by the time he was fifty years old and began his unlegendary blog, The One-Thousand, to chronicle his occasional victories and steady procrastination.
