Staying Ahead Of The Game

The rules say post everyday for a month. Technically, I could write all of them today, save them as draft and then post one each day. Hmmm...I think I should have started a couple of months ago. I don't think that I could possibly pull this off even if I did an all nighter. It would be interesting to see what kind of posts my sleep deprived brain would spew out after five pots of coffee, The most likely sceanrio would be you would see a lot of this: kfheiklk ajier kjfla kjfie tjkl djki kdiew sweore oear oan joenz. I would be happily typing thinking how witty I was so with that in mind I am going to just try to stay a couple of days ahead. That will give me a little slack.

We are going to have some very busy days ahead. We have only two weeks to go until the big trip. I have packing to do, people to visit and appointments to keep, I have a long list of stuff to remember and stuff to do. I will type up posts in between all of this and make sure that I have things saved in draft for when we are traveling because I don't know for sure that I will have internet access at that time. It could take a couple of days when we first get to Seattle to get an internet account set up. If worse comes to worse...I still may miss a couple of days. All that will happen is that I won't qualify for a prize. I think that I am O.K. with that as long as they don't kick me out.

I'm doing NaBloMoPo too, and yes, I cheated a bit and planned some scheduled posts. I learned that little trick last year. Lifesaver!

I'm not participating this year. I am writing every day and posting when I can. I don't see the difference between writing ahead and posting and writing behind and posting, yet if you write ahead and post you qualify, and if you write behind and post, you don't. How does that make sense? Technically you are still not posting daily either way, so both should count. That is why I now don't belong to anything. I just write every day and post. I don't care about being the most popular, most commented on, most read blogger out there. I care about writing and enjoying myself. I barely have time to write and read the few blogs I read. (as you know, haha!)
Good luck on your plan to post every day. Is that why there is a duplicate or was that a mistake?
Oh...and when the going gets tough, just post a cartoon, a picture or a one sentence comment. Those all count!
Have fun and hope to see you soon.
