Upon Further Review

I’m going to go back over this months posts, but first…

Just watched X3 for the second time, and I think it was better than the first time around.
Maybe it was less of a shock or something?
I’m all over the place with this movie, but my overall impression hasn’t changed much: not as good as the rest.
With any luck there will be a fourth and they won’t have the same lame-ass directer.
Oh, BTW, Juggernaut isn’t a mutant. Just thought I should let you know.

OK, so now that that’s out of the way, let’s continue.

30 Days, 30 posts(including this one of course) and what have I learned?
-Well, for one, starting to write at 10pm seems to have become a habit.
I guess all the good TV is over by now.
-I’m pretty happy with the fact that I can write about a single topic with little to no prep work.
And most of the time it’s coherent.
-Yet, I think the posts I enjoyed the most didn’t have a single topic.
-The most popular post(according to the comments) seems to have been a tie between Green Tea and Dating.
-I enjoyed writing those ^_^

Have I become a better writer?
Don’t think so, but I’ve become able to write for a solid 30 minutes without much self editing, and that seems cool.

Will I continue to do this on a daily basis?
No. Not the real long posts anyway.

Have I given the world insight into who I am?
A little, but no more than I’m comfortable with. The Dating one could have turned out to be rather personal, and really spiteful, but I think I saved it.

Would I like to go back and edit/redo some posts?
Yea, I think so. The anime and Giant Robot one deserve some tweaking. Maybe another time.
Fandom and Collecting also should be redone. Fandom especially. I think I strayed more than I wanted to just to get some words in.

Will I do this again next year?
Don’t know. I might actually take a shot at NaNoWriMo. Hell, I’m over the 20K mark(with this post) I’m sure.
I mean, that’s just 30K shy right? And I’m not sure if the rules allow it, but I could use the same format.
A bunch of short stories with a single or group of characters. I’m sure that’s allowed.
Best part, the stories don’t even have to match!
I think that would be fun. Like a daily drama(not soap) or sitcom. Oh to ponder the possibilities.

Overall I had a really good time. There were a couple of cop-outs, but I think I’m allowed one or two. That, and the other posts made up for them 😛

Could anyone do this?
Hell yea, it’s the easiest thing in the world.
That’s why I changed the rules to make it more challenging for myself.
My dog could post daily if she wanted to. I know she has a blog around here somewhere.

This contest needs to change a little to make it more of a challenge.
Not to push people away, but to make them work for it. Like NaNoWriMo. It’s not that you have to write a story, but you have to write 50K words. There’s a big difference there.

Anyway, I think I’m babbling at this point, so I bid you good night.
The following post will just be a word count.
Hey, I’m curious ^_^
