A Daily Dose of Zen Sarcasm!

From The Randomata Files.

Most of the day has gone by in snippets and bits and pieces of inspiration.  Suddenly, way past 8 pm two days before I’m supposed to start some mad marathon blogging, and the thought pops in my mind,

"What if I seriously cannot think of things to post for every day of November?"

Now in all fairness to myself  –with whom I don’t always display fairness– I must say that for certain trivialities I can be dangerously dogged.  I may not care one way or the other who is truly our President (appalling, I know) or just exactly how much high fructose corn syrup I might accidentally ingest in a day’s worth of eating random candy (true story), but give me a mindless and relatively mediocre goal –and okay, in fairness again, a couple of loftier goals upon which I’ll expound later– and watch me go accomplish my goal in a manner not unlike that with which a mammal of the porcine persuasion takes to semisolid soil and detritus*.


I’ll probably end up posting just fine.

  1. Oh, yes. I had this same thought today. Here’s my plan: I’m going to use one of my writing exercise books on those days when I can’t think of anything to write. Fiction! Based on my life! Freewriting! Etc.!

  2. I’m starting to feel a bit of trepidation on this myself. I hadn’t been too worried – I post almost daily anyway – but now it actually COUNTS, so what if the well comes up dry? Well, as far as I know, the only thing required by NaBloPoMo is daily posting – no requirements for length or quality of content, so it’ll probably turn out fine.

  3. I’m sure you’ll do fine. Just take notice of what you see, hear or read. You’ll have plenty to blog about. I was planning to say something brilliant here, but I got caught up watching Men In Trees…sorry. But really, I’m sure you’ll do just fine.

  4. I have a much more organized approach. I will take a little notepad with me tomorrow, and anything I see even marginally interesting will get jotted, and possibly blogged about. I achieve randomness!
    For example, today I called Mrs. Shitter AND Mr. Hairy Hoe. Really, there are people out there with names like these. Owning businesses. Driving our economy. What a country, eh?

  5. good luck with NaBloPoMo! looking forward to your daily posts!
    and happy halloween!
