Hey, kids. I'm planning on hitting it hard in April and actually posting some blog posts. We'll see. My writing group suggested we do a novella-length challenge in the month of April--sort of a mini-NaNoWriMo. 500 words a day. I'm not exactly a wellspring of novella-length ideas, so I opted out. But to be in the spirit of writing and creating this month, I plan on posting a blog post every day. That's 30 posts.
Are they all going to be 500 words? Jesus...no. I don't have 500 words to say about much of anything lately. Could some of them be? Sure. It's possible.
What do I plan to write about? Hell if I know. I thought about finding one of those awful blog post topic lists. You know, like, first kiss, favorite movie, last time you killed a man with your bare hands--that sort of thing. But eh. I haven't seen anything I think is interesting, so I'll probably talk about what's going on in my life. Board games. Tarot. Video games. Job woes. You know...the usual.
Or maybe I'll forget I set this out for myself and get halfway through the month without putting a word out there, then collapse in shame.
Don't put your money on a horse just yet. I'm feeling like this might be a thing.
And contrary to my motto (It's not a thing; don't make it a thing. (Yes, my motto has a semicolon in it. Deal with it.)), maybe I'll make it a thing.
You can share bootstraps, you know.
