NaNoWriMo 2018

This post is predominantly about the fact that November is right around the corner, and with it, NaNo 2018. It’s been 9 years since I last “won” at NaNoWriMo, but I’m going to be foolhardy enough to try it again this year.

I’ve been lately feeling the pull stronger than normal to write something. To create something. I feel that those urges, those pulls, should be answered, and can be answered easily enough. But, the satisfaction of them requires that we do a bit of work.

Work in the form of sitting our butts in the chairs and doing the writing.  At least in the case of the urge to create some form of written word work. The same could be said for other creative forms. Feel the urge to paint?  You’ve got to apply the paintbrush to canvas. Want to create a finely crafted rocking chair?  You’ve got to start cutting the wood.

Whatever your creative outlet, when the urge calls, answering it is the easiest way to satisfaction. And sanity, I believe. Those pulls. Those urges. Unanswered, I believe they erode away at the strings that hold us together.

All work and no play makes Jack a dull boy.
