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.


Haikus For You May 4, 2015


Just a couple (or 3) little haikus that bubbled up out of me today. I guess the bubbling was a little off since haikus are supposed to have a 5-7-5 syllable setup, and I kept thinking it’s supposed to be a 7-5-7 setup. Oh well. Let’s call ‘em … Inverse Haikus. Hmmm, according to Google, I’m not the first to come up with that.


Inverse # 1

Opening wide the windows

Kettle set to boil

Outside noise disturbs my peace


Inverse # 2

End of the day here at last

Moon shines down so bright

Tomorrow sweeps in too fast


Inverse # 3

Neighbors screeching, car horns blat!

Waking sounds of day

Ugh, take me back to dreamland




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.
