Two years ago, I decided to embark on a writing experiment where I did a write up for an album a day, over the course of the 30 days in November. It was a cheat way to participate in NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month). I’m not writing a novel (though I want to), but I do want to push myself to write more often, again. I have let that fall off a fair bit over the last year or so, and want to reignite that. What better way than to try to repeat something I have already done?
Okay, so there are probably better ways. But I didn’t really want an answer, because this is what I am going to do.
Unlike two years ago, I’m not thinking about this too much before hand. Back then, I had compiled a list of the albums I wanted to write about. I thought about doing that, but decided that, in another effort to push myself a little bit, I wanted to have to come up with what I was going to write about the day I was writing. May it lead to worse articles? Less thought? Maybe.
But this is, at least in part, an exercise in pushing myself. So I am trying to find more ways to push myself. Also, I am considering making some brief videos about these albums as well, as video is something I have been wanting to get into. So there will likely be an accompanying video for some of these articles.
