Into The Final Stretch

One more week to go in my grand experiment in blogging. With the end now in sight, I'm sure (barring any unforeseen catastrophe) I will make it through and finish out the month. Looking back a bit, I'm not entirely sure how productive it has been beyond forcing me to actually sit down and write. That, in itself, is a good thing.

I'm struggling with a few things this evening. One is deciding what to say in this post, but the others will remain unnamed for now. I'm not certain how I will resolve these struggles. Destinations have never been a problem for me. I can see where I want to be clear as day, but I have always had a hard time seeing the path. I don't know if it is because I let worries and fear cloud my way, or if I just lack faith, but it has always been hard for me to just strike out and let what happens happen. I think a lot of that comes from the results of the first great chance I took in my life; getting married the first time. That ended very painfully and now I have a habit of wanting to make sure everything is just right before taking any kind of chance. I do not take disappointment well, so I tend to shy away from any chance that it will occur. That's probably more than I should share, but that's what is on my mind at the moment.

It has been another long, trying day and I am quite tired, so I think I will end here. Here's hoping for a nicer day Thursday.

Double or nothing?

It appears that NaNoBloMo is affiliated with BlogHer now, but remains a coed endeavor. I'm signed on for September. Wanna go for another round? They supply prompts. Even if you don't want to write every day, the prompts are useful.

You're on. Sounds like fun having some prompts to stir the creative juices.
