Phooey on Fresh Starts!

Half-imagined Never Afters

NaNoWriMo starts in 25 days, Jeff Goins Intentional Blogging Challenge starts wednesday… and I want nothing more than to break open a fresh new set of notebooks!

I want to throw out all the old blog content and start over, redo the theme, rebuild the archives, start fresh and clean and find that impossible little pocket universe where that is a valid approach. I have almost ten years of posts here and countless stories and artwork that still haven’t made it online, I have half-finished projects that well outnumber the ones still stuck in the ‘would that be a nifty idea!’ stage.

But fresh starts are cleaner. Neater. Easier.

Well phooey on that!

I’m going to keep everything I have: the same content, the same custom theme, the same notebook and I’m not going to start from scratch.

I put a lot of work into getting where I am, it’s time to commit to what I’ve already done. This time I’m not going to knock down the building just because it needs a new coat of paint. *rolls up sleeves*

Bring it on Jeff and NaNo, I’m ready for ya!
