So this is day 30. I’ve made 30 posts in 30 days. For many of you, this is a “whatever” kind of task. That’s cool. I know there are lots of folks who post every day or do NaBloPoMo multiple months out of the year. Hell, people doing NaNoWriMo are writing a shitload more during November than I’ll write in a year. And that’s all great.
But I’m not one of those people who can commit to posting every day or multiple months or to writing a novel. Hell, I still have a story that I stopped writing in 2008 – just waiting for me to get to the next chapter. (I started it in 2005.) So, yeah. That kind of dedication is sort of beyond me.
So I test myself in November. To see if I can do it. To see if I can stay dedicated to the task. To see if I can come up with something worthwhile to write about for at least half of the posts.
In that respect, I’d call this a successful month. Some days were harder than others. I think at least half of my posts were moderately interesting. At the very least, I had some fun videos to share in some of my posts.
I always hope that this will be the catalyst for more regular posting on my part. I try, but it usually ends up withering away until I review a book or a movie. Or until I have something remarkably interesting happen in my world. Unfortunately, my world doesn’t get that remarkable.
For now, I will raise a glass to myself (peach iced tea – yum) and toast to my November success. Hopefully, I will find things to write about and share more often in 2017 than I did in 2016. Keep your fingers crossed for me.
Thank you to the readers who have been following along this month. I’ve appreciated having you along for the ride.
