Welcome to another year of Holidailies! You don’t know what Holidailies is? It’s kind of like NaNoWriMo, but with blogging. You blog every day for 31 days and hope to make it to the end of the month without missing a day. I did it in 2006 (8 days before losing the momentum) and 2007 (32 entries in 31 days, and managed a trip to Anaheim in there, too!). This year, in an attempt to get back on track with blogging, I’m going to write a post every day and hopefully make it to January 7th with at least 31 entries.
I know what you’re thinking: Holy crap, man. You just won NaNoWriMo with 92,000 words and now you’re going to blog every day? Are you crazy? Uh, yes. Yes, I am. If you didn’t know that I was already crazy, then you don’t know me as well as you think you do.
For those on Holidailies: Who am I? Well, I’m nothing more than a simple support engineer trying to make his way into the world of creative writing. I don’t know if I’ll ever make it, but that’s not going to keep me from trying! I live in Silicon Valley with my wife and our two cats. I love baseball to such a degree that it has displaced organized religion in my life; I worship at AT&T Park in San Francisco starting every April and ending most Octobers (except this year! World Series Champions, baby!). I typically rant and rave about stuff going on in my life, so hang on to your hat if it’s especially blustery. I’ll be sure to mark my posts accordingly.
Anyway, thanks for reading and I hope to read everyone’s posts this year and get to know this awesome community.
