30 Posts in 30 Days

Two years ago in November I posted every day as part of National Blog Posting Month. It was really easy for me then, mainly because I had 2-3 posts brewing in my head and I seemed to have unlimited time and energy for blogging.

During that month in 2007, I would occasionally stumble upon bloggers who would mention that they were writing a novel in 30 days. Which just made my jaw drop.

A few would casually mention they were writing a novel AND posting every day for that month. Reading that almost made me close up the blog. I felt like such a wimp of a writer.

During 2008 I found a story forming in my head so I took the plunge last November and wrote a novel. One hundred seventy pages in less than 30 days. I'm still editing it, slowly, but look forward to getting the book to a point where I can share it with some folks and not worry about them laughing at me.

So for 2009 I think I will try to get back into posting every day for November. This has been a very full year off the computer for me. I miss blogging and want to play along.

Let the NaBloPoMo-ing begin.

OMG! I can't believe you are attempting this and hope it works well for you. I of course will be reading every blog and anticipating the next one! Hope you have fun and don't get too stressed about it!

Yay! I have noticed it's been quiet in your nook of the blogosphere. I look forward to reading what you write this month.

We. Are. Brilliant. You and me! And yes, totally psychically connected. I feel proud to know you, novelist and NaBloPoMoer. Remember when we did it two years ago? It was fun.
I'll be here for you... all 30 days.
