At the end of July, I signed the National Blog Posting Month pledge, promising to post every day for the month of August. Since I usually DO post every day, I didn’t think that would be a problem. I didn’t reckon with my passive-aggression. Since I HAD to do it, I didn’t WANT to do it.

So today is the last day of the pledge, and my new pledge is not to pledge to post every day not never no more.


I’m still recovering from ConText. Had a good time. Did not overdo, but I’m not used to being in Writer mode 24/7. Got home with some good ideas for stories. At least, they seem like good ideas at the moment….


writing prompt: Have someone promise to do something he/she enjoys doing but then have him/her become resistant once the promise is made.
