OMG I DID IT. NABLOPOMO IS DONE. THREE YEARS IN A ROW, I HAVE TRIUMPHED OVER THIS CHALLENGE.
It is very tempting to write this entire post in all caps but for the sake of all our retinas, I'll stop. HUGE SIGH OF RELIEF, though. The first part of the month went by pretty quickly because I hadn't blogged in so long that I had a lot of things to catch up on, but once I hit the middle, well. I was reaching a little bit. It was nice to be posting regularly again, but EVERY DAY is excessive. I don't like blogging on the weekends. Well, no. I like writing on the weekends, but I prefer to post during the week. In an ideal world, I'd get a bunch of posts lined up and then I could kick back during the week and interact with people and catch up with other blogs and OMG I NEED TO INSTALL A BETTER COMMENTING PLATFORM but I've been negligent and it weighs on me. Every day when I have a comment I can't directly respond to, I get a little bit sadder. NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTION, CALLING IT NOW. Screw weight loss or getting in shape. I resolve to install a blog commenting service. DREAM BIG, EVERYONE. [EDIT: MISSION ACCOMPLISHED. Say hello to Disqus, everyone!]
Clearly I have All-Caps Tourettes of the Fingers.
Anyway. For those of you also participating in NaBlo, I have read NONE of your blogs but now that I'm not scrambling to write my own, I shall have a chance to check some of those out and get caught up. For anyone who wandered over from a NaBlo blogroll, HI and WELCOME and PLEASE STAY because I like blogfriends. For those of you who did NaNoWriMo instead, I salute you and you have my envy. Maybe I'll do NaNo in, like, March or something. Maybe I shouldn't set such lofty aspirations. Maybe I should focus on one thing at a time.
Anyway. It's been... well, it's been pretty much the same as the last two years, though without the vigor and zeal of Year 1. It's less of a challenge and more of an obligation, now, almost? I mean, I know I can do it, I've proved to myself twice over that I can do it. So now it's become more of a kick in the pants and something that I am required to do. Which I am glad for, because otherwise, I would probably still be wandering aimlessly with a backlog of unfinished drafts and a large amount of frustration and crankiness.
So, there's that.
Anyway. LALALALA WE'RE DONE YAY.
