Last Day of NaBloPoMo November

Sooooooo I made it to the last day of the BlogHer November NaBloPoMo challenge. I may have started late by a few days but at least I stuck with it and didn’t let it fall by the wayside. I am notorious for starting blogging or any other project and never finishing. Case in point the 52 Week Blogging Challenge that I stopped blogging about shortly after writing the week #2 post.

But I vowed to myself that I would complete this challenge. That I wouldn’t listen to the voices in my head telling me that it would be okay to skip a day. That I could just change the date on a post and I’d be aight. What?! It’s true mayne.

All writers have voices in their heads, don’t they?! No? Not so much?!?! Really?!?! Oh sorry! I was having a conversation with my other ahem personalities. Don’t judge me!


I learned a lot about myself over the last few weeks. I learned that despite my laziness I can still accomplish my goals. I also learned that I don’t have to make this whole blogging thing as hard as I have been making it.

To be honest, like with anything, the only person stopping me from writing as much as I have throughout the month of November is me. But in my short defense, I always feel like I need to write a short novel in order for my posts to be a valid actual blog post. Yes I know I don’t have to write a short novel. I know I can post whatever I want but at the same time, I suppose my whole mindset is producing quality work instead of writing because I love it. More often than not I’m too busy to actually sit down and crank out posts like I would like. But I’m sure with a little bit of effort perhaps I’ll write a tad more in December.

Thank you to all who have been faithfully reading my blog. Welcome to the land of crazy if you just started following my blog. Please feel free to comment anytime!

Thanks for reading…

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
