Silent Sunday

I tried. I tried really hard to do this who write a blog entry every day in the month of November thing. At the time it seemed so much more doable than the idea of writing a 50k word novel in a month. I am a busy person after all. My weekends were completely booked with faire, I had a week long journey to New Orleans planned, as well as you know work and stuff. A novel seemed right out; but blogging everyday? Sure why not.

Yea that didn't work. I was doing fine until yesterday. Yesterday was the final day of faire. I spent all day working or packing the car in an effort to get home at a not too obnoxious hour. That hour ended up being 1am, so needless to say I got home and passed out. There simply were not enough hours in the day yesterday to do everything I had to do and write a blog post.

Honestly though I have been cheating. On more than one occasion I would write two and sometimes three blog posts a day and then just schedule them out. It only appeared like I was writing daily. What can I say I am not super human. I am just a normal frazzled person.

Seriously though, why November? Of all the months in the year to pick to do crazy marathon writing why November? I mean it is a month with a huge holiday that for many of us consumes four whole days. It seems like you would pick a month that is in some ways holiday free. Some month where you aren't obsessing over place settings, family visits, and avoiding riots at Best Buy.

How about June? I mean June is fairly event free. Lots of people have summer vacation going on then, but how is that more difficult to work around than holiday planning? Or if you are looking for an increased difficulty level pick February. February is a short month. That is an added layer of stress.

I think in the end this little experiment has just showed me that I have limits and I am not afraid to admit to them. I will keep up with the last few days of crazy make a post a day stuff because I told myself I would do this. After that though I am going back to writing a blog when I have something I really want to say.

Of course I pretty much always have something I want to say, so there should be no real worries about any long silent spells from me.
