There is something both compelling and scary about seeing a blank page. It doesn’t matter what kind of page it is–a ruled notebook, a blank sketchpad, a blank post form in WordPress, the update page in Livejournal. It calls out to me, to be filled in words, to not be so…blank.
And I keep starting, and stopping, and hitting that Delete button.
One day to go! I did this vlog on Saturday, where I only had a bit over 41,000 words. This morning I hit 48k, but while this story is better than my 2007 NaNo win, I don’t know if I’ll go back and work on it. Maybe I will, later on. But I think I’ve kind of had it with the novel for now, and will be very very happy for December to arrive.
(Hopefully blogging will commence regularly again.)
