Greetings from snowy Scotland! How the heckles are you doing? I've been a slackarse with updates. November turned out to be a real busy bastard, full of "challenges" but lots of fun too. I need to do a mindful eating update and get back into the blogging groove. If you get out of the habit of flexing the writing muscle it doth turn soft and flabby.
But just a couple of quickies this evening:
The first thing is Reverb 10, which starts tomorrow 1 December. Reverb 10 is "an annual event and online initiative to reflect on your year and manifest what’s next".
Each day in December you get a daily writing prompt to get you thinking about the year that's been and what's ahead. Then you scribble your thoughts in a blog post or a Tweet or on the back of a bus ticket. This year the prompts are being written by some famous authors (and reportedly, one flaming amateur).
Reverb is the brainchild of genuine social media guru Gwen Bell, who I've linked to on here before as she's written some thought-provoking stuff about mindfulness and digital sabbaticals, among other things.
ANYWAY, after failing spectacularly at NaNoWriMo this month (my efforts curled up and died like a grotty cockroach at 10,000 words), Reverb looked like a fun way to kick-start my regular writing habit. I'll be posting over on my non-fat blog, What's New Pussycat?
If like me you're a total nerd for End of Year navel-gazing (I dunno why reading about stranger's favourite books or films or chickens is so compelling), why not sign up?
In other news, Episode 21 of Two Fit Chicks and a Microphone came out last week and I forgot to beg you listen to it! It's the Staying Healthy in Winter episode, starring lots of your brilliant comments and ideas from this very blog. There is also a White Stripes song at the very end! And a chance to win ONE MILLION DOLLARS. One of those things is not true. Smell my desperation!
