So, here I am, another November, another NaBloPoMo. Will I finish this year? Unlikely, but I feel like it would feel weird to not even try since I’ve been NaBloPoMo’ing yearly for a million years now and I figured why not give it another go.
Once again, I may or may not use the prompts that they provide. I’d like to say I’ll give it a go and do ALL of the prompts for a change, but my inner writer is laughing at me as I type this because of course I probably will do the barest minimum of prompt related posts.
This post, for example, is the first of my NaBloPoMo posts, and it’s pretty much an intro to a month of posting post. Not at all following today’s prompt which is “When you’re having a bad day with your mental health, what do you do to help yourself?” I mean, how’s that for a deep dive question right off the bat? I’m pretty sure I JUST wrote a post about the current state of my mental health, and how I have no idea how to improve the situation. But whatever. Life moves on, and posts will get written (at least that’s the plan) with or without following the daily posts.
So three cheers for NaBloPoMo! Clearly I’m insane because I keep doing these every year, thinking they will jump-start my creativity, but they only serve to remind me that my life leaves very little room for personal me-time-decompression-time like writing. Insane.
