Hey, y’all! Happy Halloween!
Yesterday I made a post about November’s NaBloPoMo and creating a 30-day challenge for myself. When I sat down to create the challenge-a-day list, I gave myself prompts such as “describe the basics about myself,” and “describe how my favorite song relates to my life.” I made it through day 5 with enough ease.
And then I got tired, made a sandwich, and took a nap.
Upon waking up and reexamining the list, however, I came to the conclusion that writing in itself is the challenge. I’ve never really had the discipline to write EVERY DAY. The next month will be an exercise in discipline to say the least, and if I reach some semblance of self-discovery, that would be cool too.
The thought of imposing prompts on my writing is too overwhelming, to be honest. When I blog, I blog about a memory a song triggered, or the way I’m feeling at that exact moment in time.
Long story short, I’ve decided to forego prompts and write from the heart.
My heart has moxie, my heart has grit. I’ll continue to write like a motherfucker, and I’ll make that happen come November 1st.
