NaBloPoMo - Day Three

After signing up for NaBloPoMo, I started to worry, just a little, about how I was going to manage. 

DID YOU KNOW THERE ARE THIRTY WHOLE DAYS IN NOVEMBER?  WELL THERE ARE!  I counted.  Twice.

How on earth would I find something to say, every single day?  I mean, let's face it.  I'm just not that interesting.

So I started leafing through my old journals (I knew they would come in handy one of these days!  That makes the hernias we've been getting lugging them from place to place to place so totally worth it!) and picking out a few ideas.

Now, before you get too excited, these are recent journals.  I actually got rid of all the ones I kept in high school, thank GOD!

Anyway, I started jotting down a few ideas and they seemed to arrange themselves most naturally alphabetically.

So that's how I'm going to run this.  An idea a day, in alphabetical order, from now till the end of the month.  And if my math skills are any good at all (and I doubt that they are), I'll only have a few extra days to fill in at the end.  Or I'll run out of month somewhere long about "W".

Stay tuned for tomorrow when the topic is - "Aging".  Unless I pick something else that starts with "A".

I certainly agree with Jane; I read every post even if I don't always comment. Have fun doing all that writing.

Thats a good idea, I'm doing the whole NaBloPoMo thing too and I'm already out of topics!

Pierre and Jane - you make me blush!

Stiletto Mom - there seems to be a fair bit of panic on the internet. It's going to be an exciting month!
