Hey there. I’m still around! Someone reminded me that it’s NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) And I thought, “I should do it!” But then I thought about what I really want to write at the moment is shorter blog type stuff. So why not do that instead?
I want to write and express myself more. Satisfy that creative itch. Stop putting off those things I meant to express. So here it is. Me being creative. Write now. See, I made a pun just for you.
If you lasted past that I going to lay out my goal for this month. At least on blog post a day. Break a total of 40 for the month. To count toward the 40 total the blog must be at least 300 words. A shorter blog can count for the daily but not for the 40 count. That’s a total of 12000 words minimum. If I found a good way to add a total together I am going to shoot for 20,000 words.
The reason to set a goal is to push yourself to achieve it. I write because it helps me put desperate ideas into focus. It also helps me with other minor issues I have (maybe I’ll talk about those in a future blog when I get desperate for ideas.)
Now these blogs won’t be as refined as I would normally make them. There will be mistakes. I won’t proof read everything. Please do point out mistakes if you want, I welcome the grammar Nazis this month. How else am I to get better.
If you have ideas on what I should talk about or things you would like to know about me please feel free to write a comment or tweet at me or whatever. I’m going to try to roll out as many of these as I can while keeping them readable.
So here is to challenging oneself and to following through on those challenges
