NaBloPoMo, NaBloPoMo, NaBloPoMo. That’s me getting used to the words. After much dithering, I have decided to commit to National Blog Posting Month; NaBloPoMo. What does this mean? It means I post/blog everyday, for the month of November. Which is sort of terrifying and at the very least a bit scary.   Currently, November is a large gaping hole a head of me which I have made a public commitment to filling each day with my ramblings. I’m a bit concerned about who will lose the will to live first, the lovely people who subscribe to/like this blog or me as I stare blankly at the screen on a Saturday in the not to distance future.
Well doesn’t this sound like fun! Why on Earth bother? I’m not entirely sure; I’m doing it because a challenge would be good for me right now and there’s a lot of hanging about in November waiting for Christmas parties and the final throes of Strictly Come Dancing and all that other exciting stuff that happens in December so why not fill the time with posting daily?
I’m open to requests, if you’d like to know the inner workings of my mind on any subject, do leave a comment and it may appear. Or if you have a subject and a spot elsewhere that needs filling am happy to oblige.  Any encouragement and support will be greatly appreciated
Care to join me? Go on……NaBloPoMo.

    I’ll be right here reading your every blog. If you really do want suggestions I’ve seen and enjoyed Flashback Friday on a few blogs in which you write about something from your past. Anyway good luck and see you tomorrow 🙂

    You go girl. There is a fab book called The Artist’s Way which I’m sure you’ve heard of and the original ‘Becoming a Writer’ by Dorethea Brande which recommends writing everyday, exercising your creative muscles. They are called Morning Notes though and are more a stream of consciousness you are not supposed to re read. I’m a massive fan and they’ve always got me out of writing block. Although different, perhaps this challenge will really exercise your creativity. You are a great and very prolific writer anyway but this will be a scholarly marathon. Enjoy x

      kinds words – I have another version of that book, I’ve heard so many positive things about the Artists Way – really should get hold of a copy. Not sure the world is ready for my stream of consciousness but I think the challenge will be good! thank you do appreciate your comments X
