The End is Near!

And now, the end is near
and so I face the final curtain.

A
 lmost there!  And for this year’s Blogathon, I must say I am very pleased with myself. By tomorrow night, I will have published twenty-one posts out of a possible thirty-one.

Not bad! Especially considering I published only seven times each in January and February, nothing at all in March and thirteen times in April.

Go me!

Publishing a post that is worth my readers’ time every day of the week is for me:
1) like running a marathon;
2) like being ADHD;
3) like having an invisible personal trainer who still delivers a wicked kick to the hindquarters.
Reading a post every of the week is for my readers:
1) like drinking from the fire hose.
At least, that’s what I think it must be like.  As a reader of several other blogs of awesomeness, it becomes almost impossible to keep up with daily posts, so I am grateful when a blogger doesn’t publish a daily post.  Otherwise, I feel guilty for falling behind.

So part of me is relieved that tomorrow, the Blogathon ends.

But another part is sad, and a little crestfallen.  Because after tomorrow, no more invisible butt-kicker-trainer-deadline-giver to make me write everyday.  The hope is that now that I’ve been writing for almost thirty-one days straight, the habit is now permanently infused in my memory. 

One can always hope.

I see the finish line!  Last one over is buying me a very large, very neat 25 year single malt scotch!
