My previous blog post was about participating in NaNoWriMo, and how that relates to learning new things. I got some questions about the NaNo process. I’m happy to say I won for the first time (Woot!), so a follow-up post to answer those questions made sense.
It’s November, which means for some people who write, it’s NaNoWriMo time. NaNoWriMo = National Novel Writing Month. The goal is to write a novel during the month of November. At least 50,000 words in 30 days. Accomplish that, and you win!
What do you win? The satisfaction of knowing you did it. And a novel to edit and rewrite December 1.
Almost a year ago, John O’Nolan published a concept for a blogging platform he envisioned, calling it Ghost. It was meant to be a blogging platform. No custom post types, no image sliders or galleries; none of the “stuff” that can get in the way of simply writing and publishing that writing. (To me, blogging *is* writing most of the time).
No, my site hasn’t been hacked again. Recently, a friend asked if he could do a quick check of a site on my computer. I went through the trouble of opening Safari and told him to use that instead of Firefox, which was already open because it’s my browser of choice.
