NaNoWriMo 2022 …

It’s on like Donkey Kong …. I’m in. I did it. Committed to 50K words in a month.

That means … no time to write here for a while, but if you’re in the NaNo & want to be buddies, with a real name and real ID … send me a comment/DM.

Otherwise, writing is part of our creative brain. Me? I’m more right brained … strongly so. Creative over analytics. We’ve been conditioned to think that we are one or the other from our school days, but the truth is, we can and are both.

It’s not an either or as much as it’s a sliding scale.

As are most things in our lives.

So do the thing. Write the book. Take that walk. Delete your social media.

Live the life you want … but that also means working your butt off for it if you don’t have a silver spoon or golden parachute or gilded Lilly.

The truth is, there are people who think they work really hard but have a safety net. The work and emotion is still theirs to keep.

Nobody gets to tell us how we feel about something.

Others can work three times harder, but think … this isn’t so hard.


Do the thing.

Nobody’s going to change to meet your expectations. There are too many reasons to get stuck. Too many reasons to NOT do the thing you dream about. And, there will always be schmucks who will be so convinced that their actions aren’t harmful, they will go on like that song from the Titanic.


Write the book.

Take the trip.

Find your place.

Be happy if that’s what you want to be.

Be unhappy if that serves its purpose.


I’m revising Shirley Valentine for this NaNo … sort of.
