How fitting. I promise not to fuck us over either.
It’s National Blog Posting Month and National Novel Writing Month. I’ve never participated in the former mainly because I already tend to blog daily, and don’t really feel as though I need a marathon to get me back into the swing of things. However, I can see how it’s a good kick-start if you’ve lost your blogging motivation. I know many of you reading this are participating in one, or both, of these writing approaches and I wish you the best of luck!
There seems to be a really great community (especially for the NaNoWriMo), and it reminds me of a similar screenwriting project I did when I was in film school. Wherein you could upload your work and get feedback, etc, which as a student I found extremely helpful. Good constructive criticism is hard to come by though, isn’t? “Cool. I like that!” is not helpful in the slightest. I almost think that good feedback is just as important as a good muse. Come to think of it, that is how I got into blogging. Through that screenwriting project website, I was approached to do short story reviews and then down the rabbit hole I went.
This space is different from the last, and I’ve already noticed an evolution of things here. Directional shifts. I’m not always sure where it’s going, but it is certainly a fun ride.
How 5 years flies.
How the unshaven top hats run amok.
That’s right, it’s also National Mustache Month too.
