It’s November tomorrow, and I haven’t blogged since June, and that is a Bad Thing.
It actually got to the point where I didn’t feel that I could post anything, because it had been so long and the first post after such a break would have to be something really worth writing about. That’s nonsense, of course. But I do need to get out of the rut, which is why I’ve decided to give NaBloWriMo a go.
Yes, it does sound a bit like NaNoWriMo, doesn’t it? It’s not that. There is no way I could commit to writing a novel in a month. This is the National Blog Writing Month. A post a day for the whole of November. It’s doable, isn’t it? It certainly sounds doable. (Oh god, I’m scared now.)
So if you’re reading this – and especially if you’ve read my blog or Twitter stream before now – what would you like to read about on here? What should I fill a month’s worth of blog posts with? Personal stuff? Photography stuff? Facts; fiction? Work stuff? Funny stuff; serious stuff? (I can’t really write about current work stuff, actually, but I do have some ideas about blogging some “writing for the web” things, editing, browsing shortcuts and the like…) Or are you secretly cringing at the idea of a post every day from me?
Any kind of suggestions would be lovely and motivating, so please pop them in the comments. And if I don’t get any feedback, I’m still going to give it a go (so nerrr). I need to get into the habit of writing more than 140 characters at a time again.
Wish me luck!
