... that is the question.
I want to participate in NaNoWriMo, and then again, I don't. It makes me want to put my head down and sleep. I can't think of anything to write about.
Writing. I'm in love with the idea of writing, I love to write when it takes over my mind, my body, and I write because I just can't stop, when the words are pouring, gushing out of me, I'm overflowing with ideas .... I love that. But lately, the well has dried up and frankly, it needs some serious priming.
So. To NaNo, or not to NaNo.
Can you write 50,000 words about not having anything to write about? Can you write about the search for an idea? I looked over the forums at NaNoWriMo, and people have got their outlines all ready, their character descriptions, their place settings, they are soooo ready ... I don't even have an idea of what to write about.
I have a laptop with unlimited pixels, though. I have coffee. Who needs ideas, I can make ideas, given enough incentive. Bring it on, 50,000 words, I am ready to prime my writing pump with you. Sneer at me if you must, you snively little words. "I" counts the same as "antidisestablishmentarianism" in the word count! Even this blog post word count is up to 216 words!
"Are you in charge here?"
"No, but I'm full of ideas!"
