It's here....

Tomorrow is the first day of November, NatNoWriMo.  Can I do it?  Will I do it?  I can't even commit to a daily journal.  Write a book in a month?

But, since I'm in the middle of a mid-life crisis, I may as well.  I've systematically cleaning my life - as in, no more staying home just because no one wants to go with me.  I'm asking myself important questions, like:  What do YOU want?  What do YOU really, really like?  I've cut and colored my hair (which is a REALLY big thing in my life...control and comfort - right out the window!)  I feel like my quote - leaving little pieces of my former shell behind so the real me can shine through.

So, write a novel in a month.  Realistically, it can be done.  In my current state of mind, no way.  However, I am going to commit to writing something every day - a short story, an essay, just jotting down thoughts.  Some of them may find their way here.  Who knows?  I do know I have to start somewhere...and here is where I'm at, so it's just as good of a place as any!

  1. Just writing something can prove to be so fruitful! It may turn out to be crap later but it gets your creative juices flowing.

    When I need to write, or paint, I try to sit down and just let things come, so far it's worked pretty well!

    Good luck!
