Happy one month!

So my daily prompt today is

What’s the longest stretch you’ve ever pulled off of posting daily to your blog? What did you learn about blogging through that achievement, and what made you break the streak?

So that question is easysauce.

<– See the calendar? This blog ‘officially’ started on Nov 1. Look quick, it’ll go to “December” tomorrow.

So, guess I’m doing pretty well with the ‘streak’, mostly thanks to fulfilling these daily prompts.

What have I learned? I like doing this stuff. Patience is required (things don’t “take off” immediately). I’m not good at dialog. Weak in several other areas, but working on all of them.

Quality images (free of copyright or fair use issues) are hard, unless you have plenty of time to hunt up royalty-frees.

I’ve learned that I need more time off (who doesn’t?) to write.

Writing short shorts (or do we call it ‘flash fiction’?) is much easier than, say, novellas.

Retrospectives are yawnsauce. Doubt I’ll be launching an autobiography project any time soon.

And…no matter how quick and easy you feel the prompt is, you could use more time. I’ll probably expand on this post, when not rushing off to work.

Streaking, that was a 70s thing
