Peer Pressure Pays Off

nablo1109.120x90I’m in. No, not Facebook, because I don’t have time to mess with that because I have succumbed to peer pressure in another form: that of National Blog Posting Month, aka NaBloPoMo, aka WTFwasIthinking?month.

This means I do solemnly swear to post to this blog every day of November. (Quantity is job 1. Quality not guaranteed.)

I’m doing this because I feel like my blogging needs a kick in the pants–either I crank it up and get into a better flow or it’s going to continue to get pushed aside and fall off. And because if HabeshaChild, Paige, my brilliant-sister-in-law Piscis, and others I admire can do it–and if others can attempt to write a whole novel during NaNoWriMo–well, what kind of loser would I be if I didn’t give it a shot? The loserly loser kind, that’s what.

So here goes. Any requests?
