So I think I’m going to do it.
NaBloWriMo that is.
I know you are probably as shocked as I am.
“She’s going to write a new post everyday for a month? She barely manages to squeak out one a week.”
First of all – don’t be so rude. Secondly, I’m crazy. Crazy and wanting a challenge – because apparantly raising two young boys, getting settled into a new home, laundry and working on other “side” projects aren’t enough.
The reality is I want to push myself to write more, eat more, cook more, photograph more and to create more of a community within Not Without Salt.
I do feel bad for those of you who have subscribed to my RSS feed because you will most likely get sick of me. But I assure you this high amount of posts are sure to last for only one month.
I’m so excited to see how it will cause me to grow and (hopefully) improve. To become better at something it seems as if it has to become daily practice to the point where it becomes as natural as breathing. I know that one month won’t get me to that point, a lifetime is often not long enough, but to inch slightly toward that goal is more than enough for me.
Learning takes work and one must stretch themselves to grow – and for me this will be a stretch.
My initial thoughts are to organize the month by breaking it down by weeks. Each week I will work exclusively with one ingredient and show many different applications for that ingredient – sweet, savory, cocktail, candy.
I do however reserve the right to change my mind and post on whatever the heck I feel like. I’m not great with structure and I tend to change my mind frequently.
So who’s with me?
I hope you’ll follow along and encourage me along the way. Your comments mean the world to me!
Is anyone else crazy enough to participate in NaBloWriMo with me?
