I’ve been writing, and chiding myself for not writing enough for what seems like a life time.
Often my blogs are a ritual of sorts before I get down to the real business of writing my novel.
My poor novel.
It’s been neglected for a couple of years now, and it’s time I either gave it wings, or set it free to find someone else to write the story. I am a believer in the vision of creativity that Elizabeth Gilbert explains in Big Magic ; Either use it or lose it, and I’m on the very precipice of losing it.
Already there is a movie in the theatres called, Mother. That’s the main character of my novel, and just a couple weeks ago I met a dog named Clover…another character in my novel.
The universe is sending me signs that it’s time to write or drop my pen. So, I’ve decided I must make a serious commitment to my writing.
This is the year I commit to NaNoWriMo. This is the year the rest of the things that tug on my shirt tails for attention get a swat. This is the year that I re-establish myself as a regular at a local coffee shop and get lost in my own little world of characters and creativity.
…and all that I can think is…YAY!!!
