I just had a really terrible, stupid idea. And then I followed through with it, so now it’s more than just a terrible stupid idea, it’s an actual terrible, stupid thing I did.

If you’ve never had a blog you won’t understand how sinister that picture is up there, but trust me when I tell you, it’s fucking evil. NaBloPoMo, in addition to having the lamest name in the history of lamely named participatory events*, can challenge the resolve of even the most confident, prolific, hearty writers. For a writer like me, who’s pretty much the opposite of all those things lately, it’s downright brutal.

So obviously I’m totally doing it!

Here’s how it works: You sign up, you write a post. Every day. For the entire month of November. Which is 30 days, or so the little rhyme tells me. That’s 30 DAYS of panicking, grasping at straws, pulling your hair out, creating sub-par content that you would never publish on your blog ordinarily** and then blissfully hitting the “Publish” button anyway because what-the-fuck-else-are-you-going-to-do? and not even feeling bad about it later because seriously-you-got-nuthin.

I would write more about what a stupid idea this is, or about how tremendously I’m going to suck at it (because hello?? I never even write on this blog anymore!!)… but I’m already wondering what the hell I’ll pull out of my ass for tomorrow’s post so maybe (teaser!) I should save my bitchfest for then.*** Really, why waste words today when I can wait and waste them tomorrow?

JESUS it’s going to be a great November.


*It stands for National Blog Posting Month, which was inspired by NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month), an equally lame name for an event that was CREATED BY WRITERS.

** Ah, hell. Who am I kidding? This entire blog is basically nothing BUT sub-par content.

*** I know, right? You already can’t wait to read it.

  1. I got suckered into NaBloPoMo a few times in my early blogging days. But now I’m older and wiser.
