Years ago, I was really into NaNoWriMo, National Novel Writing Month. The basic premise is that you write a 50,000 word novel during the month of November. It’s not supposed to be good (though apparently some people have gone on to get theirs published, to great acclaim. That was never my goal. It was more about the opportunity to be creative and write more.
I completed it one year, and never really found the drive to do it again. A bit part of that is just the lack of time. With work and training and life, it just wasn’t a priority. But I do like writing (otherwise I wouldn’t write a blog, now, would I?). So I thought I might take up NaBloPoMo – National Blog Post Month. Yes, it’s a stupid name, but it’s the same general idea as NaNoWriMo, in that I’m going to try to put up a post every day of the month.
Spoiler alert: I will fail.
But I’ve not been as great about my posting lately, and my training has also been off lately. I’m not sure which is the cause and which is the effect, but if I recommit to both, I should find great success, right?
Well, we’ll see. Does anyone want to join me in this endeavor? Yes, I know it’s already November second, but hey, no one’s perfect. If you’ve got a dusty old blog, brush off the cobwebs and put out a post or two. I’d love to see more of my friends writing again!
