November is here, and I know tons of writers are participating in NaNoWriMo this month. I'm not one of them, as I discovered when I tried to do May - You Write Your Novel last summer that those kinds of challenges don't work out well for me. I seem to end up unable to write a single word, and respond by hiding in my closet, shaking and muttering about word counts. ;)
But for everyone who is participating, I wish you all the best of luck, and I am looking forward to cheering you on as you write your novels!
For my own November challenge, I decided to sign up for NaBloPoMo, which stands for National Blog Posting Month, and post every day in November.
I tried this way back in January when I first started this blog, and only made it about five days. But now that I have more blogging experience under my belt, I thought I would give it another try. We'll see if I can make it past the first week.
I thought this would be a great time to try NaBloPoMo again, as the site has moved to the BlogHer publishing network, and there will be a party going on all month to celebrate NaBloPoMo's move. The theme of the month is "blogging for blogging's sake," and I thought that sounded like a fun theme to try. There will also be writing prompts and, best of all, prizes! :D
I also thought the timing could be good for me, as I have been so scattered and unorganized lately with my blogging that I hope this will help me get back to more of a regular pace and schedule. Last week's great Killer Character's Blogfest reminded me how much I enjoy blogging and how much fun it can be, so I want to continue with that spirit.
So I'm jumping in to NaBloPoMo with both feet, and we'll see where I'm at when it's time to turn the calendar over to December. I think this is going to be a fun month.
One post down!
