Completing a NaBloPoMo each day is becoming increasing difficult. Not because I don’t have things to say / write about, but saying them the way I want takes a long time for me. I sit and ponder, write, save, erase, rewrite in my head, type, revise, search for alternate words, and verify facts. It’s the perfectionist is me that strives to make it perfect and when it’s not (which is often – the spelling errors alone make me cringe) I am discouraged from continuing least the message is lost behind a wall of incorrect grammar and spelling. Yes, I am my worst critic.
So today we will do a picture show. I thought pictures would be easier than writing. NOT. First, you have to decide on a theme, then find the pictures in that theme and then upload & think of witty captions. Whew! Exhausting. Since I just celebrated my birthday in September I decided to put up pictures as close to my birthday for as many years as I have. A time line in pictures.
Have you ever looked at photos of you about the same time each year and marvel at how much you have either changed or not changed? In looking at your pictures are you reminded of an age where you felt your best or worse? What do you do what that memory?
