I had heard of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), and considered it a very novel idea. But, I’m not a novel writer, so I never considered it. Then I came across an article about NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month). This idea captivated me!
I recently set my blog aside in order to work on a writing course. But, making it a priority to write every day had become a huge hurdle I hadn’t been able to overcome. Since NaBloPoMo is about writing a blog post every day, I wondered if this could be the answer to my dilemma.Only one other issue concerned me…half the month was already gone! However, I quickly decided it would be a good exercise for me, regardless of how much time had elapsed.
So, today is a beginning. A starting place for me to discipline my craft. To put it out there…daily…for the next 17 days. I find myself excited about this endeavor and I wonder why? Perhaps it’s because action is better than waiting. And what have I been waiting for anyway? Have I been waiting to finish my writing course, waiting to write the perfect story or waiting for the best possible idea to blog about?
I don’t know the answer to those questions, but I do know it is time to stop waiting. I’m writing a post a day for the next 17 days. Because I need to do this. For myself. For my craft. To break through my writer’s block! I’m not sure what I will be posting, but at least I will have written. There’s something satisfying about simply writing!
So here I go! Day #1 is in the books.
