NaBloPoMo 2011 begins…

…and I’m at it again. Every November I do this, and every November, it seems, something happens. Oh well, better to try and not make it than to not try at all. Or, perhaps, I should say

do || !do; !try;

This year there are daily prompts, and a monthly theme, which will at least help the “what the hell do I write about today” problem. The theme is “Blogging for Blogging’s Sake,” which is what I do anyway. Today’s prompt is:

“What is your favourite part about writing?”

I don’t know that I have a favorite part about writing. I just know that during some periods of my life, but not all of them, I feel compelled to write. I enjoy it when the words flow, the ideas come, the body & the schedule cooperate. I hate it when I feel like I have nothing to say or I just can’t find the way to say it. Today is not a day that writing is coming easily. My jaw hurts from this morning’s dental work, my brain feels sleepy, and I just want to curl up somewhere and vegetate.

So if I am blogging today, it is definitely for blogging’s sake, just to try to get back into the habit.
