Taking another crack at NaBloPoMo. The theme for March is “In A Word”. I can either choose a word to build a post around or use a word that is a good description of my life at that moment. Those are just some suggestions, but I think I can make those work.
I have tried this before with limited success, and that is why I am using the word ‘Commitment’ as my first post. I am going to commit to doing this for the month of March. It is something meaningful that I can work towards.
But if you want to be a writer, than be a writer, for god’s sake. It’s not that hard, and it doesn’t require that much effort on a day to day basis. Find the time or make the time. Sit down, shut up and put your words together. Work at it and keep working at it. And if you need inspiration, think of yourself on your deathbed saying “well, at least I watched a lot of TV.” If saying such a thing as your life ebbs away fills you with existential horror, well, then. I think you know what to do.
