It's the end of PoMo as we know it..

..and I feel fine.

Ok. So I did it. I posted everyday this month and managed not to die. Some days not dying seemed like a victory - not that dying was truly a possibility; it's just an exaggeration (,Mom,) - that I was so stupidly busy that death seemed like a viable option. No, not "viable" because that means "living," and a living death seems ridiculous, though I do feel like the living dead some days. "Feasible" is a more likely adjective, I think.

Anyway, I wrote three or four "good" posts, "good" meaning "I don't hate them", and the rest were pretty much fluff, thus proving that I really should only blog when I have something to say or am prompted. I already knew that about myself - just like I knew that I only wanted to practice the piano when I felt like it, or like I knew that I wanted to take dance class on my own schedule. I don't think it's unusual to not want to do homework. When requirements and parameters are involved, even the things we enjoy doing become chores. Still, I need something to prod me in the right direction.

If you have any ideas about prodding sites (mind out of the gutter, Christine!), let me know..
:)

Whew... congrats to you. On the accomplishment and on the self-realizations (more like confirmations.) And I do have someone who helps prod me: my blogpal Sandy @ http://stranglingmymuse.wordpress.com/

Go browse around -- she also lists other blogs that help foster creativity, deadlines, and more.

Yeah - this is mostly why I don't do it. I blog when I have something to say and don't when I don't.

This week has been a whole lot of don't. Sigh.

Thanks for the shout-out, Kablooey. Ginger, I'm impressed. I'm not sure I'd be able to blog every day for a month!
