Kicking Off NaBloPoMo

Guess what guys? It’s that time of year again! No, I’m not quite talking about Christmas yet. I’m thinking more like NaBloPoMo!

I did pretty good with it last year and it was so great to feel convicted to write because I knew I’d dedicated myself to something. This year I’m doing it all over again. Which means, a ton of posts from me and a ton of posts for everyone to read!

I’m not sure how much different it’ll be, because I will have to do everything from my phone, and quite honestly it’s just not the same as putting my fingers to an actual keyboard. I feel a tiny bit less motivated when I know I’ll have to mull over my phone just to push out one post, but you’ve gotta use what resources you’ve got right?!

Well, with that being said: let’s kick this thing off! I hope to meet and read with plenty of new bloggers! Good luck everyone!


Wasting My Young Years

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.
