CRAP! I Missed A Day!!

Oh, the horror. 
Oh, the disappointment.

I missed a day of NaBloPoMo. 
A NaBloPoMo FAIL!
Oh The HORROR
Oh The HORROR by hybristophilia666 on Polyvore
It's not like I didn't know it was going to happen. I did. I had a very busy day and after dinner last night I just wanted to relax. I sat on the couch, Kindle in hand new book waiting, full belly, family all around chillin', and said "Oh CRAP, I didn't post a blog today!"

Then, I turned on my Kindle while hubby found a movie for us to watch (I can read and watch a movie at the same time. Multitasking...you Mom's know what I mean), I settled in on the couch, and the thought of blogging evaporated.

It's not that I am short of ideas! I have 4 drafts going, and I even have handwritten in my journal ideas for other posts. If NaBloPoMo right after NaBloWriMo has done anything for me, it has got me to write every day, whether I actually post or not. 

But last night, I just couldn't bring myself to force a post. I would have struggled to post something most likely stupid, and meaningless. It would be forced, and I think we all can agree forced writing sucks.

I still wrote yesterday. In fact, I find I even THINK in writing terms, do you know what I mean? I mean, as I think, I carefully pick the words that would read well, sound good, and convey the feeling I am having at the moment, and before I know it I have compiled a full sentence in thought. It is actually kind of weird, to think in sentences, and even re-think the sentence in a better way. 

But I guess that is what happens when you make writing part of your future goal, and incorporate it into daily activities. You are writing your thoughts. Do you find yourself doing that too?

What will I do when I am not obligated to post every day? Well my fine readers, you will have to keep reading to find out!

You will have to come back, again and again and again, read my blog regularly, until you find out.  Muwahahahahaha!!

No wait, come back after you find out, too. I will still blog, I will write meaningful and interesting posts. So keep reading, kay?

  2. Oh no! But you made it most of the way and still wrote today so I don't think you totally failed! Where as I have not felt like it and HAVE posted random things of boring crap at least in my opinion! Thevend result still the same, something was written. :)

    Just keep writing!

    I find it really hard to post over the weekends and I actually did the "Oh crap, I haven't posted yet!" on Saturday. I've just made sure to post the next day!
