November means two things to the writing world: NaNoWriMo and NaBloPoMo. What am I talking about? National Novel Writing Month and National Blog Posting Month of course! Last year I went for NaNoWriMo and wrote the first draft of my novel (which I confess is still simmering somewhere in the back of my mind and still hasn’t seen the light of day). It was a really good exercise in discipline, and I certainly wasn’t bored at any point during the month! NaBloPoMo actually happens every month (and I did participate in July 2009), but November is the only month with no theme, so it’s become somewhat special.
So, this month I have decided to have a go at NaBloPoMo. I already post daily over on Picturing England, but for the month of November I will attempt to post every day here on Haikugirl’s Japan. I’m actually quite behind on my blog posts, so this will be a good opportunity for me to catch up! I can’t promise that every day will be a mind-blowing essay of deep intellect, but there will be something every day.
So, consider this my post for today, and I’ll see you again tomorrow! Please do subscribe using the WordPress follow by email button up there, or follow me on Twitter or Facebook for updates. がんばります！ (*^_^)v
