A few weeks ago I bought a book called "All Over Coffee". It is a series of comic strips from a San Fransisco newspaper. I might begin each blog with a strip while Im writing my novel this month.

"You think too much,"
"But I get a lot done,"
"You have to, otherwise you'd go crazy from all that thinking,"
"Maybe it's because of all those thoughts that so much gets done,"
"Maybe you're over-thinking,"
"The thoughts has crossed my mind".

A new day and new inspiration. That book really is enjoyable and spurs on creativity. I also taught my mom's class again this morning and now I am back at Starbucks with new passion and fresh ideas.

So here goes...

November begins

It has been months since I have posted a blog. And here it is, November, and I am writing. The irony is that I am writing to explain that I am having a hard time writing my novel for NaNoWriMo.

I have sat in front of my computer looking at a blank screen for an hour. This is the opposite of what I am supposed to be doing. Just write! No worries about editing. No worries about a good story. But I am committing to a story that I will have to stick with for 30 days. 28 more to go and I still don't have a word down.

I am sitting in Starbucks and I cannot focus because I am annoyed with the conversation of the Halloween party where everyone got drunk. I can't focus because I am listening to this conversation. And I can't write because I can't zone out. Just pick a story and write it. Just write it, dammit. But no. I am making the same excuses that I always make.

Maybe I will make this a trend, blogging about my NaNo progress....We'll see.....
