Writing

Hurry Up Already, NaNoWriMo

Confession: I honestly cannot wait for NaNoWriMo. Literally. I’m writing this post to try and stop me from starting my novel that I planned for November.

But I don’t know how much longer I can keep abstaining from writing this story. The ideas are dying to come out as the monsters within are clawing at my insides, desperate to escape. I’m afraid I’ll go insane if I wait another 33 days before I pen the thoughts roaming in my head down.

In many ways, writing breathes life into my soul. To stop or to resist writing sucks the life—my soul—out of me.

So unfortunately I’ll be writing prior to NaNoWriMo because I cannot delay my musings any longer.

Musings and Mantras On Mondays

Why do people say things they don’t really mean?

Take, for example, the word hate.

Such a strong word. So when people say things like:

“I hate that movie.”

“I hate her book.”

“I hate him.”

“I hate my mom.”

Okay, the last example is a little extreme. Still, I try to say what I mean and mean what I say. How else would I rather say it?

So this week I vow to do a better job at expressing my opinion in an honest way because frankly, no one can read my mind, but if someone could that would be horrible.

Mean what you say or don’t say it at all: my new mantra for this week.
