So that is my first Blaugust over, done and dusted, finished.
I hit one of my goals, in that I wrote at least 31 entries, though I admit some where extremely lacking. I came up fairly short in my other goal of 31,000 words, penning only some 16,000 or so. Still, I am quite pleased and satisfied with myself for sticking to it, and always endeavouring to write something if I had the chance. There were no occasions when I just 'gave it a miss', I always sat down and tried to think of something to say. Admittedly sometimes nothing came, but that is alright.
You no doubt know that I am not by any means a particularly communicative fellow, as I find it extremely difficult to make people understand the subtle nuances of what I'm trying to communicate (and those nuances are important). I am also fairly private as a general rule. But I have, as I have mentioned before, derived a measure of catharsis from this exercise after a difficult year. Going forward my burden shall be slightly lighter.
That said, I am so, so glad to be done with it. Thanks for reading.
Until next year.
