I've accepted a challenge.

Some of you have maybe heard of NaNoWriMo--National Novel Writing Month. The idea is for people who have always wanted to write a novel to spend the month of November doing so--focusing on quantity, not quality, and just making themselves write what's in their heads. I'm terrible at fiction--just ask Dr. Mary Brown--so NaNoWriMo is definitely NOT for me. That's when I heard that someone came up with the alternative NaBloPoMo--National Blog Posting Month (language warning for that link, fyi). It's simple--just write on your blog every day.

I tend to write in spurts. I find myself with lots to say one week, having to save posts for several days so as not to overwhelm you. Then the next week I have nothing interesting to write about and the blog is largely silent except for links to other people. For the month of November I'm trying to even things out--a post a day, all month long. Sorry I didn't get around to posting about it sooner--maybe some of y'all would have joined me!

Anyway, we'll see how this little experiment goes. Eight days in, so far, so good. If you have any topic ideas, feel free to send those my way :)

Hey Amy!
Next year you'll have to remind me to do it with you... I looked up Lauren needs, and put it on my blog. Very cool!
