I found NaBloPoMo today and I am so glad I did. I have looked for months for a way to spark some ideas and to write on a daily basis. However, I have found that limiting my writing to only those items that are “professional” and business-related has limited my creativity overall. I know that as I become more comfortable with blogging and a better writer I will break through these self-imposed limitations, but until then, I am excited to have found this great resource. Knowing I am part of a group of women who are writing on a daily basis, reading and supporting each others ideas and writing, feels very sweet.
So what I find especially sweet today is the sense of community and creativity that I have found, and I am inspired and thankful for the women that created this initiative, and to those that have posted regularly since its inception. In exploring some of the blogs of participants I can see how much they have grown by posting daily, using the writing prompts to keep them engaged and creative. It is rare to find such a strong community and feel so supported without even starting yet. Here I am, starting.
