Being a writer is a very peculiar sort of a job: it’s always you versus a blank sheet of paper (or a blank screen) and quite often the blank piece of paper wins.
Neil Gaiman, English author of short fiction, novels, comic books, graphic novels, audio theatre and films

Organized Chaos
Story of my life.
For years, I’ve kept a series of Composition Books, stuffed with scraps of paper that I’ve frantically written down ideas, lines, notes, etc. They’ve become my journals, of sorts, not documenting my daily routine, but my reactions to things as they’ve happened. My musings, as you’ve seen posted recently. It’s a way I sort through my sanity.
I’ve been revisiting these pages a lot lately, finding lines and notes and thoughts I’ve found relevant or particularly like the wording of. More often than not, I’m hoping to get some of them out there as a way to filter through and find lines I want to be sure to keep. I find words from two, three, four years ago, and I’ve put them up as a means of organizing a bit of the chaos.
So these you see here, have littered not only my desk, but this blog.
Once I find a few things I’ve written recently that I like, I’ll be sure to post those too. Out with the old, and up with the new in the next month or two, I hope. For now, the old words from years and dramatic episodes past will have to do.

Well, I’ve Been Pulled In …

A friend of mine, in comment to one of my posts, asked if I was going to do the NaNoWriMo.

I, oblivious as usual, wrote back that I’d consider it if I knew what the heck he was talking about!

The “National Novel Writing Month,” as he explained, will be coming up this fall, and sounds like one fun challenge to write 50,000 words in a month’s time. Intrigued! So I best practice up and get ready for the big event.

And thanks to my friend for bringing it up!
