The purposeful blog

November 7, 2013

I keep telling myself that one of these evenings I am actually going to sit down and do more than just regurgitate some words on to the screen. Maybe talk about my job, or Alex or at least do a decent recap of some of the highs and lows of the past 7 months. Maybe talk about deeper issues, maybe photograph a recipe, maybe put together one of those little photo recap videos I have been wanting to do. But alas with the shorter light, the demands of work (with commute included) 45-47 hours a week, my creative flow in the evening has so far seemed quite limited.

That all said, I still appreciate the discipline of sitting and writing something, anything really, at least once a day. Similar to how the original NaNoWriMo is focused on helping writers get over themselves and just produce, NaNoBloPo forces me to just get over the fact that I don’t really have anything to say at the moment and just write.

So here I am blogging and maybe even getting in a few posts in this month that help me feel like I worked my witty writing muscle or shared something important, memorable, even.

P.S. I got this postcard in the mail today from the girls and it totally made my evening:
