Trying NaBloPoMo


Why not right? So many of you are doing NaNoWriMo, I’m feeling like I am missing out. I can’t handle a novel at this point in time. I’ve got a grant deadline in early December, so that is where all my writing should be going. I don’t think I could write a novel anyway. Blog posts are more my speed and what better way to get back into the habit of writing, right?

Actually, I should have been a little less impulsive in signing up yesterday. Considering this is the 4th post since I went MIA 7 months ago, this may be too big a commitment. I want to be writing again, but I am still having trouble managing depression. I was really looking forward to doing A-Z last April. I even prepared ahead of time! It didn’t matter though. Depression took over and it was a spectacular flop. At least it was spectacular right?! Glass half full. 🙂

Since this whole thing started yesterday, Halloween (I must have been possessed), I have no idea what I am doing. I did sign up at BlogHer, so I will probably be using the prompts over there most of the time. Outside of that, I’ll babble about depression, grad school and life in general. Sometimes the scientist in me just has to share something cool I learned. That has been rare in the last while since I am mad at my Ph.D. and everything related to it. Maybe I’ll try to doodle again, no promises though!

NaBloPoMo is really hard to write without typos. Does anybody say that out loud? I keep messing it up when I try to say it.

I will leave you with Ewok’s discovery of the Lego Express.

Happy NaBloPoMo everybody!

    It’s my first time doing this blog challenge and I’m also doing the novel challenge as well. I don’t know what came over me either when I decided to take on both challenges but I’ve always wanted to write a novel and get back into posting on my blogs so @-@ I guess I’ll be doing it at the same time. Yay! Right? Good luck on your blogs, I’m sure you’ll do a wonderful job as you’ve always had in the past. x3

    Last year, someone in my reader ended up calling it NaNoPoBlamo because that was easier to say, lol

    Remember blog posts for NaBloPoMo can be photos, quotes or your doodles as well as a written post. I’ve signed up as well and fully intend to use my Writer’s Quote Wednesday posts and Weekend Coffee Share posts and maybe some photo posts to complete the challenge. I have no doodles, at least nothing as lovely as yours. Don’t forget the list posts – three things I’m grateful for, etc. Good luck, I followed you so I can view your posts.

    Hi there. Can you get me the link to this page you signed up for? I probably can’t write a novel either but I still want to check out. Maybe I’ll get an inspiration, you never know.
