It’s the first day of November, which means those of us who run in creative/writer circles have been thinking or hearing about NaNoWriMo for a couple of weeks at least. (A quick explanation for the rest of you, NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month and is pronounced NA-no-RYE-mo.) Every year I think that I love the idea of participating in this group effort to churn out works of creative writing, and every year I decide that it’s a bad time to put in that much effort, since the official goal is 50 thousand words in the course of the month.
I’ve sometimes participated in the past by setting by own writing goal, and this year I’m stretching the concept even further by turning it into National Blog Writing Month. My goal is to write a post on one of my three blogs every weekday (and possibly some Saturdays) in the month of November. For those of you who’d like to fully follow along on this blog writing adventure, here are the links to my other two blogs:

I’ve really been cutting back (nearly eliminating) my social media use in the past couple of months, and I’m hoping this blogging challenge will give my friends and family more chance at getting my life updates outside of Facebook and such, as well as replacing some of that previous scrolling time with an actual creative outlet for me.
I hope to post about our recent vacation soon (including a few beach pictures), but since I’m currently still recovering from travel and needing to catch up on laundry and dishes, I’ll keep this post short. If all goes according to plan, you’ll get a longer life update here within a couple of days!
