NaBloPoMo Stands For National Blog Posting Month

2013 November 1

The Goal here is to write more.

The other goal? Find a little motivation.
(If you can’t find it? FORCE IT.)

keyboard type write
Some would say (even shout!) don’t just write.
You should ONLY write when you have something good. Something amazing.

Well I don’t always have something good… and face it… I rarely have something amazing.

Also I’m writing in other places and it’s easy to tell myself I don’t have time for my own ‘blogging’… cuz… ahem.. I don’t! I don’t have time for blogging when my kids are marchingband/crosscountry/sciencefair, my husband is traveling, there are dishes to do and Rolo Cookie Bars to master! (I’ll let you know how THAT goes later.)

Instead of worrying about every post being knock-it-out-of-the-park worthy. I’m going to make a huge list for each day of the month and write as it comes to me. Not stressing about perfection.. um.. not stressing at all.


5 years ago I saw that people were doing this thing. This November writing thing. Whether a novel or daily blogging or keeping a journal each day, it’s not that I made fun of them… NO. I think I was jealous. And afraid. Yeah, that’s closer to my feeling. What if I failed? What if I missed a day? Or worse. What if I suck? Better to not tackle it at all, right?

But folks I’m 40 now. There’s pretty much nothing left to scare me. Looking in the mirror at a naked 40 self is enough to give anyone the courage to write and let it all hang out a little bit. (Okay haha, scared ya for a second. TO BE CLEAR: there will be NO ‘hanging out’ of any Carissa parts in November.)

Maybe next November.

    You are braver than I! I want to do NaBloPoMo, but am afraid I will lose whatever few marbles I have left. 🙂

      I never dared do it before. Was too scared I’d suck. And of course that I couldn’t keep it up.
      Plus there’s the holiday chaos at the end of the month…
      Um.. there might be some ‘photo’ posts at the end.

      But mainly I just wanted to get back to writing more.. even if it’s really just journaling and family stuff ya know?
