I am intrigued with writing, so much so I joined NaNoWriMo, committing to writing 50, 000 words in the month of November. Well, I crossed my fingers on that goal and hope to write a daily blog entry, comment on others work, and respond to others posts to get my word count up. I will track my writing with 750 wordcount.com. So it appears, even to me, that the lofty goal of 50,000 words for the month is a little too high. Nonetheless, I think I will shoot for 10,000 a week giving me 40,000 for the month. That is a lot of writing.
If you are reading this blog, it will be quite eclectic, may have spelling and grammar errors (I will try to limit them) for my goal is quantity and the entries may not tie together. I pondered if I should do this without putting it on a blog. I decided to put it on a blog as a consequence of reading Mediactive. http://www.amazon.com/Mediactive-ebook/dp/B004EPZ3C2/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1319941727&sr=8-2
I read this book using the Kindle app on my computer. This is not my preferred way of reading, but I found this interactive book great to read this way. I took notes, highlighted and explored the links. I printed up my notes and reviewed what I had highlighted. I think I learned more this way.
One point the author made was that one should participate with the media, (hence the title: Mediactive?) so … blogging, commenting on posts and interacting with the media is my goal, at least for November. I wonder how I will be changed when December rolls around.
