I would never say that I think of this blog as something too serious. I want to provide content, but I’m fine with going silent. The goals I set and the ideas that I have to provide here are mine.
But sometimes I forget that this can also be something larger than just me. My blog can provide insight to other people, but the first thing I have to do is provide that insight to begin with. So as I sit on my couch tonight, March 31st, I decided to sit down and write again. I’m not sure that this blog will ever be anything more than my own ramblings, but I feel like that might be enough.
April starts tomorrow. I’m terrified. I’m jumping back into taking care of my mental health and working on creating physical knit items. But April brings about the beginning of Camp NaNoWriMo. I have tried so hard to be a good writer, but every day, I find myself wanting to not touch my own projects and instead work on knitting and video games and reading. There’s nothing to be ashamed about there. Those things are also what I enjoy.
But this month, I’m going to try to make it all work. 1,667 words a day, read 4 books, work on knitting projects daily, keep my home clean, stay well-rested and relatively well fed.
This won’t be an easy time for me. I will not be excited about every single day. But after this, I’ll find out if I am able to do everything. And maybe if I can do it for one month, I can do it for two. And if I can do that, I can do more.
Here’s to a new month. Here’s to a new try.
