We’re less than 12 hours away from October 1st, 2013. The great challenge that is National Blog Writing Month is nearly upon us. Are you ready? I’m certainly not. Well, it’s true! The next three months are always the worst creatively for me. October is NaBloWriMo, November is NaNoWriMo and December is a time for reflection on the last 365 days. I feel like I have to put something to keyboard nearly every day for these three months. It’s like the Olympics, only for nerds.
Here we are once more at the edge of the prose-ical precipice of National Blog Writing Month. Hanging by both hands, tentatively looking down at the thirty days of writing that awaits and wondering if this was a good idea. Well, it is. And was. Back in 2006 I found out about NaBloWriMo and I’ve been hooked ever since. My site archives have recently taken flight into error land but I’m working to get most of them back so I can flash back to the last six or so years of this crazy thing.
I think I missed one year and fell apart halfway through another but I’m going to gloss over that and stake my claim as having doing this for nearly six years. I feel old.
