NaBloPo... Done!

So. Yesterday was the last day of NaBloPoMo.
I did it. I posted every day in November. I'm proud of myself. I'm glad I did it.

And I learned a few things. But the biggest thing I learned is that I like my 4-5 days a week posting schedule. I like not having pressure to post every day, but the expectation that I will post several times during the week (since it encourages me to post more frequently than I have in the past).

I learned that I am not always that interesting, but when I have emotional distress, my best way of decompressing from it is by writing, which I guess I always suspected, but I never knew for sure.

I learned that I am not always as eloquent as I'd like to be. But I'm hoping that with time, that that will improve.

I used to want to be a writer. I guess I still do, but I have no idea what to write, and I have no real inspiration. My best stuff in the past was really my character development. I could spend days and weeks writing the background info for the characters in my story and then either get bored with the story when I finally started writing or lose the plot in my head and not have a direction to go in. But I need to get back to my inspiration if I'm going to try and write again. But meanwhile, staying in practice, writing regularly on the blog is hopefully an exersize to help with that discipline. We shall see.


  1. YAY! Congrats!! I can't do any more than the 5 days/week I already do. I think I'd have a meltdown!

  2. Congrats! I did it too and I am with you I much prefer the 4-5 days a week. I need a break and I published some crap I think my readers would have appreciated a break from too!
