For whatever reason, November is a big month for writers, and lots of my online friends are doing some pretty remarkable things. One just released a kids book. One is working on a novel. And several of them are joining Holly Spangler of farmprogress.com, for the “Thirty Days of Agriculture” blog series. They’ve created special graphics to honor the event, and most of them have been working on their posts for weeks. They have wonderful themes and grand plans and they’ve filled their blog calenders with topics and draft posts.
I’m joining them. It’s November first. It’s 9:00 at night. I’m just getting started with my first post.
I started this last year and got through the first week or so, and then missed a day, and then two and then the rest of the month. Maybe things will turn out better this year.
Part of it all is that I figure that the things I do are just so incredibly boring and that there is no way anyone could possibly be interested in what happens on a farm in central Virginia. And the stuff we do is the sort of thing everyone else does.
But then again, maybe it’s not what other people do. Maybe someone will be interested. And maybe somebody would like to hear about our cows. Our grey cows.
Presenting, 30 Shades of Grey.
