Keeping Up With #NaBloPoMo

If you’ve been following along this month, you’ve probably realized that, in addition to attempting to write 50,000 words for the NaNoWriMo challenge, I am also attempting to blog daily for the NaBloPoMo challenge.

NaBloPoMo is definitely the more difficult of the two for me, right now. I can always write twice as much on my memoir one day and be back on track, but if I decide that I’m just not going to write a blog post for today, I can’t get that back. I mean, sure, I could back date the blog entry… but that’s cheating, and nobody likes a cheater. Plus, I’m not trying to win these challenges for anyone else, just for myself, so there would be no point in cheating.

Anyway, that’s a long-winded way of saying that I was just about to give up on NaBloPoMo today. I had a good day of writing my memoir, hit the 10,000 word mark by late afternoon. I’m still a bit behind schedule, but not too badly. And then I realized that I hadn’t written a blog post for today. So I decided I wasn’t going to.

And then… at 9:37 at night, I changed my mind again. So I’m writing, late at night, about writing a blog post.

It’s not great material, I’ll give you that. But it’s something… and that’s better than nothing, I suppose.
