Here we are, nearing the end of January, and nearing the end of this month’s NaBloPoMo. I’ve done pretty well, I’d say. I missed a few days here and there, but I think I’m going to go ahead and call it a win. Mostly because it’s my blog and I can do whatever the hell I want to. So there.
The next question is, do I sign up for February? That’s a tough one. I don’t want to have to blog every day – because that can be a pain in the ass – but it does, at least, make me write something. Hopefully more kick ass somethings, than so-so ones.
Also, since I have this audition for Listen to Your Mother coming up, I’m going to need to write something good to preform. And right now, I don’t have a thing. Nothing. At all. Not even a topic.
This is where y’all come in. I wanted to ask you all, what do you think? Which of my posts do you like? What topic should I discuss? Anything I’ve written so far that you loved and I can build on? Anything that was incredibly lame?
I really need you to help me out, dammit!
See this is the point that I always get stuck at: the starting point. I look at a task and I get overwhelmed and I just can’t move forward. House is a mess…don’t know where to start…don’t clean the house. Huge project due…don’t know what to do…don’t do the project. Got to get healthy…overwhelmed…don’t do anything. Audition to perform…don’t know where to start….NooooOOoooooo! Not again!
If I can’t even figure out what to write, I guarantee I won’t finish starting this whole big mess. And that is just not an option at this point. I found a way to push outside of my normal safety zone, and I’m determined to go through with it. Win or lose, I want to give it a great go.
I guess this is where February’s NaBloPoMo might help. Perhaps I’ll treat every day as a mini writing session for the audition. (Don’t worry – I want it to be in my voice, so I will still do my best to be funny and relatable and maybe even poignant too.)
Now, just tell me what the hell I should write about!
No, seriously, leave a comment.
