I’ve decided that I’m going to try and continue this little streak I have going here and blog every day for the rest of November. Even if I only say a little bit, I think it will be a good practice into easing back into writing.
I used to write a lot. I talked about it in an earlier post. Want to see something really embarrassing? Here you go.
It’s always been sort of a wild goal of mine to do NaNoWriMo (if you’re not in the know, that’s National Novel Writing Month, which is every November). All through high school and college I was always too busy with schoolwork to justify writing 50,000 words outside of class. After college, during my period of unemployment, I was all set to do NaNoWriMo once and for all. I was hired October 29 and decided to focus on my job instead.
I’m not doing NaNoWriMo, not this year at least, but maybe I can think of this as sort of a “BlogoWriMo.” Or, seeing as my current streak started November 16, maybe we could call it a “Half BlogoWriMo.” People do half marathons and things, I can just do the version that involves staying parked on my ass.
I don’t know if I have the dedication in me to focus so much energy on a single intense project for so long. But I probably have it in me to throw something up on WordPress for about half a month.
