NaBloPoMo 2014

Every time I came up with an idea of something to post on my blog in October I thought to myself, I’ll save that for NaBloPoMo.

What’s NaBloPoMo? That stands for National Blog Posting Month. It’s the blogging counterpart to NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). Rather than setting a word count goal, bloggers aim to post something once a day every day in the month of November. I’ve participated for the past two years.

Last month was hectic for me with Peter’s surgery. It seemed like a good idea to save up all those ideas for NaBloPoMo. I figure that if I could post every day last year in the middle of buying and moving into a house, then this year should be a piece of cake!

Right?

One of the main reasons I’ve been hoarding ideas is feeling too scattered to craft stories around them. I freeze up not knowing how to organize my thoughts. By committing to a post every day, I’ll worry less about getting it perfect and more about getting it started. In the spirit of Anne Lamott, here’s to shitty first drafts!

Consider yourselves warned.
