Trying to take the No out of November

I've gotten lazy, creatively.
I tried to write this entry at 6am but got distracted and threw my hands in the air and decided to try again later.
That would be the easy way to explain my absence from this blog and the shorter episodes of the podcast. It would be easy but untrue. My energies just shifted from creativity to loading band equipment and spending most Friday nights and Saturdays at football games and band contests.

The band season has been winding down (at least one more game to go) but I still haven't returned to the old pre-marching band schedule of recording multiple podcasts and tweeting most of my insane thoughts and blogging quite a bit and now I realize that I probably won't ever return to that pre-marching band schedule.

One thing I do want to return to is writing regularly. I'm not sure why. I think I miss the act of writing more than I have any need to get thoughts out of my mind or share any particular ideas with the world. I'm going to try to do at least one post a day each day in November. That's the goal because I need to A) write more and B) get in a writing habit.

I know that I could get more into a daily writing habit if I was participating in NaNoWriMo this year but I decided this week to not sign up. I want to enjoy writing and not stress myself out over writing. I think that trying to write 50,000 words in one month would stress me out big time!

A final piece of exciting news - I've decided to use the long dormant @jasonwriteshere Twitter account to keep all the blog related stuff in one place, at least for now. We'll see how that works at least for this month. I want to use @upinthisbrain just for my dumb thoughts and Instagram pics. I don't even autopost podcast episodes there anymore.
