I did it! And if you've been reading, I apologize!
No, but really, I'm glad I did it. Glad that others, like Gretel, did it, too! And no way do I want to continue at this pace. I hear of some people doing blog 365 and I think, no way, not for me. Here is why.
I am an editor. Many people think editing and writing are about the same, and many people are equally talented in both areas, but I find myself pretty firmly in the editor camp. I love to write, but it is not an effortless task for me. I have to mull and ruminate, which for me usually leads to improvements. For instance, I thought of the G.O.B.B.L.E. punchline on this post the following day. I remembered a few days after the time suck post that I should have included Passive Aggressive Notes. (Thanks to those who shared theirs, by the way!) A bit more time would have allowed me to make my Thanksgiving post a bit less schmaltzy and cliché. Your composition teacher was right: drafts are important!
I hope this exercise will kick me back into more-frequent blogging. The amount that seems right for me is about 2-3 times a week.
HPR had another idea for a daily activity. Hmmm, it is getting pretty cold outside. . . . We'll see. But I probably won't be blogging about it.
