"NaBloPoMo" it cried, "NaBloPoMo!"
I took note when Adrienne mentioned her November blogging plans in her comment.
The echo got louder.
"Really?" I thought to myself, "am I really going to do this?"
I did NaBloPoMo last year, and it was rewarding, but so very hard. Did I really want to take on this challenge? And if so, did I really want to announce I was doing it? Maybe I could just resolve to do it without saying anything specific, and then if I failed to complete my goal, no one would know.
Here's the thing: I might not make it.
It is called a challenge for a reason.
But I have a lot of things I've been meaning to write the last couple of months. And I have some ideas for things I want to do and write about in the next few weeks. And I know that a little bit of accountability can only help.
So I'm telling you my November plans now.
I will be doing NaBloPoMo this month.
Even though I'm working more, and we are playing a bit of homeschool catch up from the traveling that has happened this school year, and I am almost ten books behind on my GoodReads goal for the year, and I really should undertake a complete and total reorganization of our entire living space - I am going to do NaBloPoMo.
Because in the midst of all of those things, I want to make space for writing, and it seems like letting you know that I am planning on publishing a post every day is good first step.
Welcome to November.
Bring on the blogging.
When you give yourself space to be creative, to share your voice, and to participate in the blogging community, you are not at all wasting time on the internet.
Are you doing NaBloPoMo this year?
