With the finish line of NaBloPoMo in sight, I want to take this opportunity to thank Mizmell for inviting me to participate in this endeavor. Though I can’t say I have enjoyed every minute of it, it has actually been a very good discipline for me. Under normal circumstances, I am the world’s most inconsistent blogger. In fact, you might call me a “Foul Weather Blogger.” If I have an idea I like, if the stars align, if I am not lured by the siren song of an errand, a phone call or a hike in the mountains on a gorgeous day, well, then I blog. But if the day is too inviting, the distractions too copious, and my store of ideas too depleted, I just, well, bail on the entire endeavor.
I think this is the first month since this blog’s inception that I have posted every day. It has made me realize that if I am going to continue to blog, I am going to have to give more time and attention to the process. Some of the posts this month have been a tad too slapdash for my taste, some downright banal, but even that has been a good practice for me. The posts don’t have to be perfect – hey, I don’t have to be perfect.
Sitting down and writing is all I have to do.
