Writing may be the only thing that ever keeps me sane. It’s my outlet for any and every emotion that I ever feel and the only way I can truly express the words I need to say, that I’m too afraid to speak. The only problem: I never seem to make the time for it like I should.
With that being said, I decided to go ahead and join the NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) craze that’s happening this month. I initially decided to do the NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) before I came across NaBloPoMo and decided that it’s a little more at my pace for now. 50,000 words isn’t impossible, but I do tend to get ahead of myself, as with everything I do, and I realize that if I’m going to be realistic here, I want to do something that I know I can finish.
What’s almost shamefully disappointing, is the fact that you’re supposed to write a blog for every day in the month of November and, I still managed to fall short in that aspect. Better late than never I suppose; at least it’s not a week into the month when I decided to pick this up. I did promise myself that I will–no matter what–find some kind of time to write, post, anything at all really to satisfy this crazed passion I have for writing. I heard it only takes 21 days for something to become a habit ya know; I’ve got a whole month.
I’d encourage anyone and everyone that has a passion for anything at all, to embrace that passion and make time for it. You’ll feel nothing but regret if you ignore it.
