Sprint to the finish
Turns out that this whole post-a-day-for-30-days wasn't the agony I thought it would be. I wasn't tortuously searching for material, desperately seeking subjects to ramble about.
Some pretty damn exciting things happened, though. This year's historic presidential election. A Supreme Court case or two that caught my attention. The financial services meltdown. (Have I mentioned how glad I am that I don't work for the bank anymore lately?) Even a few news stories I wanted to comment upon, something I've been avoiding for a laundry list of reasons.
Did it get me back to writing fiction? No. Unfortunately. But it did make me think more often about my little novel, and I'll take that as a positive result.
Will I do it again? Yeah, I think so. Not next month, that's fer sure. Probably not in the fall again, too much conflict with some other obligations.
The best benefit is that I feel more confident identifying myself as a writer. I am. I do. I will.
