It’s that time of year again, where each and every little writer scurries into their corner to pull out their pen and paper and pour out their heart and soul.
Although, I don’t think I’ve ever participated in NaNo. I’ve meant to in years past, or I’ve been to far along in other projects to stop and start a brand new one. Another problem with competing has been dedication issues. Like with a blog or anything else, my attention flags after about 15 mins, then it’s time for something new. Part of living with ADD, I suppose. It really gets in the way of things. More on that later.
The real point of this post, however, is to create a point of public accountability. In essence, I’m going to participate in NaNo, not by working on a new novel, instead I’ll be working on this blog. The point of NaNo is to get butts in chairs on a daily basis, with an expectation of producing so many words a day. Using it as a habit building exercise, I will put my butt in the chair everyday. And every day I will produce a new blog post.
This is an effort to battle back the curse of ADD, and to help develop a healthy habit for myself, and maybe for my wallet later on down the road 😆.
To end today’s post I will leave a S.M.A.R.T. Goals declaration: I, Ryan S. Kinsgrove, will write and publish a blog post every day in the month of November, in an effort to build a better Ryan, and to prove that I can change for the better.
