Well, I thought I'd share with my (few) readers that I have decided not to continue with NaBloPoMo.
I honestly don't see this as a failure, but rather a conscious decision I have made after a lot of thought.
I am not a prolific writer. My sister carries that honor in our family. I don't write in a beautiful, poetic, peace-bringing or humorous style. I don't have long insightful wisdom-filled posts. I stammer, stutter, and otherwise plod my way through posts filled with random snippets of my boring life. (It's really no wonder why I only have 10 followers!).
Forcing myself to write a post everyday has, I believe, caused me to lose focus and has taken away from the substance of my blog. My desire to blog within the constraints of this challenge has suffered. My posts have suffered, and I don't like that.
Granted, I probably could have prepared a little better, bit it was a spur of the moment decision to participate anyway. It is a decision I should have thought about for a while longer before committing to.
I want this blog to touch people, to inspire people, to entertain people, and give them some insight into the life of a hopelessly flawed servant of God muddling through life with some good friends and her sweet husband by her side.
I enjoy the community an interaction of my readers and all the people I've found through this blog. I don't want that to end. I hope I can continue to reach people through writing about my struggles with infertility, my hobbies and my journey through faith.
I'm not going anywhere...
I'm just not up to the task of forcing myself to come up with a post daily to meet a quota. To those of you who can, that's awesome and I commend you. I just know my own personal limits, and I've reached it.
Long story short...it's back to business as usual here at The Road. =)
