I’ve noticed a lack in my blog writing consistencies over the past few months. Initially I was writing once a week, now I’m lucky if I get a post in once a month. Part of this has to do with trying to appreciate summer and do outdoorsy things and travel as much as possible on the weekends, but my main excuse is simply because my computer is on its last leg. Broken leg really, crawling along towards the computer hospital, clinging for life. It is a miracle that it still works most of the time.
In efforts to write more, and to be a better writer in general, I am challenging myself to write every day for the month of September. Thus, “The September Challenge” begins. My posts may end up being silly or late at night/early in the morning, short, like a dairy, or plain stupid, but I believe it is something important that I can do.
I will start with an update of how fall is starting out to be. Today was 82 degrees and the Man and I went golfing. It was lovely and hot and sweaty but at least I spent the day outdoors! So far fall is turning out nicely. Doesn’t everyone just appreciate the beauty of the weather? (Cue sarcasm).
On another note, I am reading Z: A Novel of Zelda Fitzgerald by Therese Anne Fowler. It is okay, not worth going out and buying immediately, but entertaining enough to borrow from a friend should you need a new book and have time to waste reading something un-phenomenal. I am going to start “reading around the world” soon with some friends. Basically we are following another blogger’s list of books she found from authors around the world. We start in Afghanistan and I will give updates periodically.
So, I have started this challenge today, September 1st, Labor Day, Monday, the start of fall, and it appears to have taken the focus of nothing in particular.
