Yesterday I wrote about how each year NaNoWriMo comes along and each year I fail to even get my novel off the ground, right? I also mentioned that it was only November 2nd and even though I had no ideas, I could still pull off this whole write a novel in a month thing. I’m a pretty fantastic cheerleader, so I was very close to convincing myself that I could do it. But…
Today I ran across a blog post from my friend over at Reclaiming Mary. It was a post about NaBloPoMo, which is even more awkward to say than NaNoWriMo. It stands for National Blog Posting Month. I thought about it for awhile (like a whole five minutes) and it was clear to me that I’m not going to be writing a novel (let alone one in a month) at this time. Where as blogging every day for a month is really what I want to be doing.
I’ve been itching to get back to my bloggity blogging self for quite some time now and this whole National Blog Posting Month¹ is exactly what I needed to make myself do it.
Look out November! I’m going to blog the shit out of you.
¹Even though I didn’t write a blog post on November 1st, I’m going to see if I can back date one. If I can’t do that, then I’ll just write a bonus blog post one of the days. I’m not trying to win a prize or anything. I just want to get my inner princess out again. ;)
