This is my fourth year to participate in the National Blog Posting Month, or NaBloPoMo.

For the unknowing, unwary or uninitiated, it means I’ve committed to posting something every single day, for the 30 days of November, on my blog.  I love NaBloPoMo and I really, really want to participate, so I’m going to dedicate my posts this November, to things I’m grateful for, since that should be easy.  Right?

It may be words or just pictures from my phone (or both).

Ultimately, I believe that I have so many things to be truly thankful for, that even though sometimes I get temporarily overwhelmed and forget to appreciate all that I have,  I can’t run out of content, because my life is full of blessings.

So today, I’m grateful for NaBloPoMo, and for reasons to celebrate the good stuff.

NaBloPoMo Day 1:NaBloWriMo

Your welcome.
This morning, I signed up for NaNoWriMo, otherwise known as National Novel Writing Month.

From their website: “National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) is a fun, seat-of-your-pants approach to creative writing.  On November 1, participants begin working towards the goal of writing a 50,000-word novel by 11:59 p.m. on November 30. Valuing enthusiasm, determination, and a deadline, NaNoWriMo is for anyone who has ever thought fleetingly about writing a novel.”

While I did decide this morning (somewhat fleetingly, but mostly somewhat buzzily over my first cup of coffee) to resurrect my amorphous novel, the Demon Bride of Peachtree Palace (first attempted during NaNoWriMo 2 years ago), I’ve also decided to make this a blog challenge as well, which I have dubbed  NaBloWriMo, or National Blog Writing Month.  I may have bitten off more than I can write, but we’ll see.  Look for me in the upcoming days and mock me mercilessly if I don’t write at least something here everyday.

And seriously, on rougher days, it might just be the word “something.”  It’s also NaChrisPartPlaMo, or National Christmas Party Planning Month at work, which we celebrate by fielding dozens of calls from companies with their panties in a twitch because they forgot to book their holiday event back in August and now they are desperate for a party site.

Good times, people.  Good times.

See you tomorrow!
