My friend, the awesome Tristan Tarwater of Back That Elf Up, has suggested an alternative to NaNoWriMo for those of us that don’t participate. Her recommendation is, “Every day this month, write a review for/rate/share one piece of media you’ve enjoyed. Book, game, comic, etc.” I have accepted this challenge.
Dudes. It’s day four and I’m writing a review on writing reviews. I didn’t think it would be an easy challenge. But it’s still harder than I thought.
The thing is, I compiled a whole list of things to review, but none of them were singing to me today. Nothing seemed right until I decided to write about the process. Why? Because that how I get my way through writers block.
All in all it’s fun and it has me thinking a lot about my favorite things. I’ve also been on a big decluttering kick lately, and this practice really goes hand in hand with that. Plus it’s excellent writing practice! I do feel like I err to the side of writing about things I love, but it’s my blog and I’ll do what I want! >_<
