Tomorrow, the challenge starts. I have crazily, stupidly, bravely committed to writing a blog post a day for the month of August. The theme at the Nablopomo website, ( the site hosting the challenge ) is “fiction” which is really appropriate. As an only child, I grew up creating whole fantasy worlds to keep myself amused. As an adult, I am given to creating fiction both on the page, and at times, in my real world. This is sometimes beautiful, sometimes disastrous. Still, as crazy as I am about the theme, I have no idea what the heck I am going to write about for 31 days. There are daily prompts on the Nablopomo website, and I’ll be relying heavily on those. If they don’t speak to me, I’ll be pulling stuff from thin air, old journals, grocery lists and the odd drunken rant. There will probably be a lot of fluff and a lot of crap. At least, though, I’ll be showing up to the page everyday. You have my blessing to take me to task if I don’t.

Oh, and does this post count? 🙂


  1. Good luck with it Shelley. I know you can do it. I look forward to reading them.
