November is almost upon us and as such, Nablopomo has rolled around again. I started last year’s challenge, late but with good intentions, but only managed four posts in the end. As I’ve not been writing very much over the last six months, it would be great if this challenge got me back into writing regularly, but honestly as long as I write more than four posts this month I’ll consider it a victory. To make things hopefully go better, I’ll be dividing my posts for the challenge between here and my food blog. The idea being that when I don’t want to make posts about films I’ll write about food and visa versa.
It feels oddly appropriate to be writing this today as, while I was poking around getting ready to post this, WordPress wished me happy anniversary. I started this blog 8 years ago. (Happy Birthday, little blog.) Over the years its morphed from somewhere to collect my freelance writing efforts immediately post graduation from uni, through music and short film blog to chronicalling my adventures in sound art and documentaries.
I am slightly more confident about my chances of success this year, due to having actually made a plan this year. Last year I just had some vague ideas of some themes that might work but this year, I’ve made a list of the posts I’ve been thinking about writing lately with titles and wee descriptions. (15 of them! That’s half the days accounted for.) So my real target will be to get them all written by the end of the month. Anything more than that will be a bonus.
I’ve got a plan: let’s do this.
