"Accept the challenges so that you can feel the exhilaration of victory." -- George S. Patton
This morning I came across a really interesting thing—it can only be described as an equivalent of a blogging marathon. It is NaBloPo Mo. (click on the word to know more) The challenge is simple—you have to post every single day for one whole month! 11,586 members have joined so far!
You don’t have to necessarily start at the beginning of the month. But you have to post for 31 consecutive days. I toyed with the idea. I tweeted about it asking if anyone was game. Prateek immediately joined in. I asked my husband if he thought I should join. I asked a close friend and another very good friend. They all enthusiastically said yes, I should.
But the Ms. No in me (see my book if you don’t know what Ms.No is) gleefully and cruelly squeaked “Your son’s SATs are coming up on May 11th. You are having visitors from India for a week from May 14th.Your daughter’s birthday is coming up on 21st. And don’t forget you are also volunteering at an animal welfare charity plus you are assisting in doing a summer term project on film making at the children’s school.”
Add to it I don’t have any house help (except for my loyal entourage—my husband and two children) and you can see what a daunting task, creating a blog post everyday is.
I am going to plunge in.
Your comments always help. They encourage me to write more and I do enjoy interacting with you.
So wish me luck and from today there is going to be a post every single day on this blog for the next 31 days. Some days it may be a poem, on some days it might be a photo I clicked. Sometimes it may even be a video (I will write at least a little bit of course--else it would be cheating)—but yeah, there will be a new post every single day.
I am hoping I succeed and if I do, you know you have had a BIG part to play in it, by being kind enough to write in.
