A couple of weeks ago I posted about my failed attempt to participate in NaNoWriMo and how I decided to become a NaNoRebel and do NaBloPoMo instead. Given that we are more than half way through November, I thought I would give you an update as to how I’ve fared and what I’ve learned so far. Because I had specific goal in mind when I did my about-face, I’m pleased to report that this exercise has been very successful.

Except I’m not writing a novel, I am blogging as part of NaBloPoMo, or National  Blog Post Month, an offshoot of NaNoWriMo. Apparently, I am what is known as a NaNoRebel – typical! ( I had never heard of NaNo Rebel or NaNoBloPoMo until a couple of Twitter friends [whom I also know in real life] explained the concept to me, so hat tip to @ShaiCoggins and @KamTiger.
