Edinburgh skylineWhat a month--skies like temper tantrums of the gods; serious comfort foods like pumpkin pie and turkey; NaNoWriMo; the first frost and putting the garden to bed; fog and morning mist and early dark; a time for being housebound, yet content; a lull before the Christmas holidays as the year is dwindles and quiets.
Thought for the day:
Everything you write is an opportunity to practice your craft, whether its a sympathy note, a personal letter, an e-mail message, or an anecdote in your journal. Express yourself as well as you can at that particular moment. Don't settle for bits and pieces. Don't tell yourself this doesn't count as real writing. Good writing doesn't count as real writing. Good writing is a habit. Make every piece of writing the best it can be.
