Hubby was also officially “over” NaBloPoMo last year since it is his job to give my posts at least a cursory glance and edit before I post them. He kept complaining that he had a real job that required his attention and wanted to know when my month of constant blogging would be over. Thus you can imagine my surprise when he was my biggest cheerleader for joining this year. “You took off three months from writing. You’re doing this!” It may sound like an ultimatum (and kind of was), but he was right. I was a lazy, unhappy slacker for three months and now I’m a lazy, contended blogger again. And I like me better this way.
I blog because I love it and the lesson I learned last year is that if, at any point in the month, NaBloPoMo has become drudgery or my writing starts to suffer then I will pull the plug. Surviving the entire month would be great but not at the cost of driving my wonderful Devoted Readers crazy with half-assed writing.
So wish me luck, guys. We’re all in for a long month!
