I Survived NaBloPoMo!


NaBloPoMo is over and I made it! Woohoo!


GIFSoup

Today is my last NaBloPoMo November post and I am so glad I made it! The grand procrastinator that I am, I never, for one second, trusted myself that I can nail this.

For one, I never thought I could think of a post to write every single day in November.  My life is practically boring.  If my life is a reality TV show, it would get cancelled on the first day!

The writing prompts were there to help me out, I guess, but they were so not working.  I tend to freeze up when confronted with intense questions and I guess that was what the prompts were for me. 

It didn’t help that I saw other posts in the NaBloPoMo soup ! Most of them were obviously written by seasoned writers who are doing the NaNoWriMo at the same time!  My posts seemed totally amateurish and thoughtless.

Over all, though, it was fun doing the NaBloPoMo.  There are days I would practically wreck my head thinking of a good post.  Other times, total inspiration would hit me and I could do my post in thirty minutes. 

My favorite posts were from some of my Blessed Sunday Thoughts posts, which you can visit (I beg you!) here, here, here and here!

Will I do this again?  Call me crazy, but I am doing this again!  It will be at my other new blog , though, called Project: Me, Only Better which I hope you can visit!

On second thought, I might include this blog again!

    1. NaBloPoMo stands for National Blog Posting Month. This used to be an annual thing in November. November is National Writing Month and on this month, aspiring authors join the National Novel Writing Month NaNoWriMo and spin their novel, unedited, within a month. NaBloPoMo is an offshoot. Here, you are required to post in your blog every single day.

    1. Thanks. You can try it. It is so tiring, though, but BlogHer and Wordpress actually have prompts (and some picture prompts)

  7. Congrats on making it through the month! I hear you about the intimidation factor - I loved reading some of the professional-ish blogs this month. It was a great community building for me!
