NaBloPoMo: Fellow Bloggers Nurture Each Other

About 18 months ago, when I closeted myself in a room to sit down and write, I froze. I considered writing to be a solitary craft but looking at a blank screen or talking into thin air was a sterile exercise in futility for me. I could not translate the same creative energy that I experienced telling a story verbally to the keyboard. My intuitive, imaginative side stayed buried and my logical intellect wrote boring drivel.

Then I started to blog and people started to comment on my writing. They liked my stories. I was shocked. These new online friends helped me gain confidence which it turn helped my writing. Early on I read that bloggers are supportive and unselfishly helpful, rejoicing in each others success and offering free guidance . Well, I discovered that this statement is true. 

 So, I have  Joined NaBloPoMo This November since I barely miss a day writing anyway. My first post just missed getting published on Nov. 1 , but they allow a few days for people to join anyway. I have written  on all sorts of different topics lately but I want to concentrate on all my untold kid and mummy stories this month. This means I will be prodding my kids memories. Last year,  the first year I participated in this momentous event, I combined BlogHer’s and WordPress’s NaBloPoMo with one run by a  health site. I found the daily prompts help me discover stories which would never have seen the light of day without their help.
