I’ve challenged myself to 31 days of blogging, something this site has never seen from me. Several times a day, I think to myself, “I should write more.” I write for a living, but it’s not enough, and I don’t have a good excuse. I have notebooks full of stories and ideas, but when I’m having trouble falling asleep at night because I want to be writing, I tell myself to try and get some rest instead. Other than work-related writing, I have always written for myself. As such, I’ve only let myself down up until now.
Enter Think Kit. It’s my first year participating in this project, which involves dozens of bloggers taking on the post-a-day challenge run by SmallBox, a marketing firm here in Indianapolis. SmallBox sends a daily prompt to the bloggers, and each writer goes from there. My husband and I are doing it, and I have a few friends in on the challenge, as well.
So, for the month of December, I’ll be posting a lot, and I hope I can maintain the momentum through the New Year, at least a little bit. I’ll post the day and my own headline as the name of the post, and I’ll put the prompt at the end of the post. I hope that keeps things interesting, because according to my website dashboard, I average a 15 visitors to my site each week. I wouldn’t want to let down those loyal fans (aka Internet vagabonds who do not know me or care about my writing).
