022. Just A Random Update

So far, I have been staring at this page for a grand total of eighteen minutes, trying to figure out what I should be saying. It is almost a year later from when I last posted, and yet I can't find anything meaningful or worth while to say. I mean, a year? One would think there would be many things to blog about, yet I can not think of anything.

I'm wondering if I should blame it on the writer's block I have been experiencing. Hm, there's something.

Some of you will remember last year when I blogged about National Novel Writing Month. I participated in November, and I "won". I wrote a novel consisting of 50,849 words, complete with teenaged angst and all. It will definitely never make it past the depths of my laptop, since it's my worst piece of writing, but at the same time, I wrote a novel.

Many others finished novels as well. A total of 9,768 recorded authors finished their novels last year, and I'm sure even more will complete them this coming November.

This year, I'll direct you to a new link provided on the website. NaNoWriMo (as it is called by participators), now has a blog! You can find it here.

Anyway; I suppose I'll leave this post off with a quote. I think that Thomas Mann said it best:

"A writer is someone for whom writing is more difficult than it is for other people."
