It seems like, every time I get into something and am writing and enjoying everything, stuff happens and the first thing I drop is the writing. I should know better. I think I need to write, like some people need to paint or need to…work on cars I guess. It’s not a perfect metaphor.
So, despite high hope and careful planning, my goal of not letting blogs fall behind was a total failure this year. I mean, I haven’t really posted anything, anywhere, since winter. In an online world, that is basically when Reagan was president (And there wasn’t even a real internet then, just bulletin board services and I’ve heard those were awful. A complete lack of autocorrects or kitten videos).
So, I am setting a goal to seriously work at getting all the blogs up to date – that would be this one, the 2by2up page, MinMoto, and Traveling 250. Things have happened on all those fronts and there isn’t a lot of reason for me to have been silent all this time, other than a careful plan to fail at blogging.
My photography stuff has a page too, which is currently dedicated to my 52 Rolls project. One roll of film every week for a year, though 2 of the 3 weeks I’ve shot more than one roll (to date), so perhaps it will be more like 75 rolls. We’ll have to see.
It’s late November as I write this, which means NaNoWriMo. I’ve actually already won this year, though the story had to be padded to get to 50k – which is different than usual. I haven’t decided what I am going to do with it yet. Perhaps tighten it up and then write a couple related stories and put them all together. I have another Super City story I’m finishing up now, and Beginner to Overlander became available back in September (yeah, I’m failing that hard).
So, stay tuned as I try to wrap up some of these open projects, and somehow earn gas money for next summer’s travel.
