howdy

Hey – remember me? I used to post stuff here. On my blog. One of many. That I’ve basically abandoned. I saw something online and I think I might participate in it. So – you’ve no doubt heard of NaNoWriMo.

No? Well NaNoWriMo stands for National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write every day, and by the end of the month you’re supposed to have completed 50,000 word novel.

Yeah – not doing that.

There’s also NaPoWriMo, for writing a poem a day, which happens in April. I actually did NaPoWriMo one year. You know, back when I actually posted stuff to this blog.

It was interesting, and kind of fun. Not that every poem I wrote was a winner, but I’m quite proud of what I did.

So, anyway, apparently there is a blogging version of this writing thing, called NaBloPoMo. Aaaaaand, you guessed it – this is my first post. (Yep, there’s “Blo” in the name, but I’m gonna be a grownup and leave it alone)

Mind you, if you participate in any of these things, you’re supposed to sign up or register or something. Make it known on the official sites.

Yeah – not doing that

But anyway, you can check out ideas and prompts and just get some general info on the whole thing.

So, let’s see how this goes.

 

Remember me? April 2, 2015

 

I haven’t forgotten about the blog.

 

I know I haven’t done anything original on here, in, like … forever. I barely reblog articles, either.  And Cover Battles – I really let those slide.  It’s like, well – the first Friday I didn’t do a battle I felt bad, but then the more I didn’t do one, the easier it got to not do it.  My gosh, I haven’t even ranted!

 


I don’t know, guys. I’m sure I’ll come back to doing stuff here.  Don’t know when, but it’ll happen.  It’s not that I’m off having exciting adventures or anything. It’s just that right now, I’m not really feeling it.


I even toyed with the idea of doing NaPoWriMo again. But I don’t wanna think that hard.

 


During the meanwhile you can still look at the stuff I did before and one day there just might be … something new.

… on the blog.

 

If it was in real life, I would not be saying “Yay!!”

Let’s make a better world August 21, 2013

 

From an article by blogger Dan Pearce, Single Dad Laughing

 

Because what you’ll find, and I promise you this, is that the more you put your arm around those that you might naturally look down on, the more you will love yourself. And the more you love yourself, the less need you’ll ever have to find fault or be better than others.  And the less we all find fault or have a need to be better than others, the quicker this world becomes a far better place to live.

Time flies May 8, 2013

   

 

Received this message earlier today:

 


 

 

Wow. Three years ago today I started this whole shebang.

   


Can’t believe I’m still doing it. I had absolutely no clue as to what I was doing and I wasn’t even sure why. Oh yeah – I was trying to open myself up to new things and share and create and express … stuff.

 

Well, there’s still a shit ton of stuff I have no idea about, but I think I’ve gotten a lot better with sharing stuff. My consistency has been spotty but I told myself I was going to make a concerted effort to something out here every day, if at all possible. And not just quotes or reblogs, etc. Actual stuff I write myself. I think I’ve gotten pretty good at writing (ranting/rambling) much more. And I think my poetry output and quality has really improved, thanks to NaPoWriMo. All those random ideas I jot down and never do anything with are finally getting fleshed out. I’m excited to see where my little brainstorms take me to, because honestly, sometimes I start with one premise or theme in mind then, during the course of writing it goes off in a totally different direction than I thought it would. But that’s cool. It’s kind of exciting.

I hope anybody reading this blog has enjoyed the mishmosh of Kimmie’s brain spurts and shares. And overshares. Maybe you’ve learned some stuff. I know I have.

 

I just want to thank anyone who’s ever checked out a post, reblogged something, commented and shown their support and encouragement. I truly, truly appreciate the effort. You’ve been a inspiration to me and I will continue to be the same frazy, weird, ranty, perverted chick I always am.
