It is National Blog Posting Month (NaBloPoMo) and I have set a goal to blog every day of November from here on out.
Whooo! I said it out loud. Scary. Now I have to do it. So hold me to it. Don't let me off the hook. Don't let me make excuses. I must something everyday.
Now I am not going to guarantee that these will be my most inspiring posts. But there will be a lot of them. Luckily I am starting this experiment in a month that BlogHer is providing writing prompts. Just like the TAKS test.
If you are an observant reader you may have noticed that I am supposed to blog everyday in November. But it is already November 4. Well, Friday is always a good day to start a new project at my house. I am going to get caught up right now.
Nov 1--What is your favorite part about writing?--Well, I think I'm kinda funny, and I love writing funny things. I know that sounds snotty. But even if none of you out there are laughing, sometimes I am cracking myself up.
Nov 2--If you knew that whatever you ate next would be your last meal, what would you want it to be?--If I knew I was about to eat my last meal, I don't think I'd be to concerned about what I was eating. But whatever my last meal is, I hope it happens at a time in my life where all the people at my table are sitting in big kid chairs, are not wearing bibs, and can hold their own utensils. I would also enjoy a meal that did not involve sippy cups. Probably Chinese food.
Nov 3--Can you listen to music and write? What song did you hear today?--No I can not listen to music. Even though I started college as a music major, I would say that at this point in my life I am not really even a music lover. Isn't that weird? Today I heard several songs from the musical Seussical. We are producing this at school. The last song I heard today was "These Are The Pets I Love" from Baby Signing Times. It is stuck in my brain like a fork!
Nov 4--When you are writing, do you prefer to use a pen or a computer?--I just finished the 6th draft of a play that I am producing in the spring. I wrote the outline for it in pen, but all the other work was done on computer. I like to make lists on paper. Creative writing has to start on paper, but my blog goes straight from my brain to you.
So all caught up!
A more important topic that I'd like to mention tonight is National Adoption Month and this weekend is Orphan Sunday. I hope that many of you attend churches that are celebrating/recognizing this event that is very near and dear to my heart. I am thrilled to report that we have finally found a church that is participating and I might get to share our adoption story on Sunday. There is nothing I like better than talking about my super amazing kiddos. You might have noticed.
So below are links to 3 Orphan Sunday videos. Watch them. Share them. Think about what you can do. You don't have to adopt, but you can still have a huge impact in the life of a child by giving to a orphan care ministry like OFA, supporting a family in the adoption process, and spreading the word about the global orphan crisis. Find a way the share MORE LOVE!
