American Pickers: Season 2 (2010)


This November I have signed up to do not one, but two writing challenges. The first is Nanowrimo (National Novel Writing Month) where the goal is to write a novel (well 50,000 words of it at least) during November. I love Nanowrimo and am plugging away on my book, so I’m feeling pretty confident on that front (I will write an end of the week wrap-up on my experiences tomorrow). The second challenge I undertook was NaBloPoMo, or National Blog Posting Month. Here the goal is to write one blog post per day for the entire month.

Day 101: Pawn Stars, Season 1 & 2


I’m not going to lie. It has actually been quite difficult for me to keep up with my blog posts lately. At the beginning of February, I made a commitment to work on my book for at least a few hours before I sat down to write a movie review. This structure worked for a while, and my blog fell a bit behind (honestly, I still have notes about movies I watched over Christmas). And, because I was out of the habit of writing a post daily, the frequency of my reviews plummeted. Last week was probably rock bottom in that I only posted once. And it was a mediocre review of a mediocre film. Boo, me. That’s pretty embarrassing. Throughout the week, I kept promising myself that I would just write something—anything–for My Life in the Queue. But, being the diligent procrastinator that I am, I kept pushing it off. And so, this week I have promised myself I will publish updates every day. That’s a whopping five posts. I guess I just wanted to make my goal known so that the fear of public humiliation will drive me forward. How’s that for a carrot on a stick?
