National Blog Posting Month #NaBloPoMo


National Blog Posting Month November 2014 NaBloPoMo #NaBloPoMo

Today, November 1,

National Blog Posting Month

(#NaBloPoMo) begins!

I have tried to take on daily blog posting challenges before but without much success.

Life always seems to get in the way. The kids need to go here and there. A lunch needs to be made. Homework needs to be done. The laundry pile is taunting me. Or the house needs to be cleaned. (Plus, my attention span some days in non-existent.)

This past year I have been struggling to write.

Sometimes I log into the computer and stare blankly at the screen.

I will the words to come.

I have wanted to write so desperately.

An idea would pop into my head and then, it was gone as quickly as it came.

I’ve become wiser and purchased a notebook to write down my post ideas.

On my trip home from Blissdom I used my smartphone’s voice memo app to record ideas that were flooding in.

My creative spark came back!

I had been missing it so much.

So, please join me throughout the month of November.

My goal is to post each and every day.

Some posts may be happy and silly.

Others may tackle the tough stuff.

But it will all be real.

If you see me faltering, give me a gentle push.

I would appreciate it.

Will you be participating in this year’s National Blog Posting Month?

If you are taking part, what are you looking forward to most? Connecting with other or new to you bloggers? Or getting back into your writing groove? I want to accomplish all of the above!
