{November 2, 2011}   Just Write

As I try to tackle NaBloPoMo, not to force myself to write a post a day for a month, but as a way to remind myself that I AM a blogger, and want to give my blog more attention, I came across this on Pinterest (oh, how I heart Pinterest):

So, write I will…and the rest, well…the rest is life! 😉

{November 1, 2011}   NaNoBloWho??

It’s November.  Which means it is NaNoWriMo or, National Novel Writing Month.  Also known as the crazy month when writers everywhere commit to writing 50,000 words in one month.

It is also NaBloPoMo, or National Blog Posting Month, the month when bloggers everywhere commit to writing a post every single day for a month…

I’ve done both in the past.  In fact, quite a few years back I did BOTH at the same time.

In recent years, I have attempted NaNoWriMo, but have not quite made it to the 50k mark.

I abandoned NaBloPoMo ages ago…I’m barely a blogger at this point, let’s be honest…so, a post every day for a month?  Not likely.

November, especially, is a tough month…I help put together a youth retreat on Thanksgiving weekend, which requires MONTHS of preparation, and the month of November is crunch time.  Also, I am away on said youth retreat the entirety of Thanksgiving weekend.  As in, away from all technology.  Which takes away at the very least three days of writing, right up against the deadline at the end of the month.

Plus, due to the completely unprecedented  and unexpected snowstorm this past weekend, I spent the last 48 hours without power…and today, which should have been the first day of NaNo, I was too busy doing things like cleaning out a fridge full of spoiled food.

So, any sane person would tell you, there is no way I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year, and no, I’m also NOT going to do NaBloPoMo…

But, I’ve never been accused of being sane…

SO…don’t count me out just yet…I’ll make up my mind by the end of the week… 😉
