Feels like I should put something here, cus I hate to think my site has died all the way dead.
No, no; it sleeps like a dormant volcano.
I’m participating in National Novel Writing Month- getting off to the usual anti-productive start of indecision, babble and procrastination. Wheee! … Feels like old home week.
Interesting to me how people who are peripheral to all that deep, dark writing intent seem to be inspired to write. While I vacillate around a pile of disparate words, I’ve received the pleasure of absolutely beautiful writing from others through e-mail & blog entries. None of these people are doing nanowrimo, but want somehow to also make writing a priority for November.
I am much more impressed by their output than my own.
It’s been fun to connect with a few on twitter who are also giving it a try. You can tell the veterans because they gamely dig in, in a low profile way, knowing today’s ideas will mutate & knowing they might lose steam in the middle or drop off & fail of their goal.
It’s the process, not the hype. Someday I’ll learn that. (But the hype is kind of fun.)
Hope you’re all well out there in blog-land. I won’t mention the elections right now. I don’t want to jinx my darling Kitzhaber whose still in a neck & neck race for Oregon Governor.
Hoping. Hoping quietly.
Tell me, if you feel inspired, what projects you’ve taken on for November, the beginning of the gloom we dub wintertime.
Hoping the hearth-fires stay warm for you,
** addendum: John Kitzhaber won! Yay, and welcome back, governor.
