NaNoWriMo. Oh, I’ve got to write like crazy. It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that writing keeps me alive.

I take painkillers every day of my life for this arthritis.  Not opioids.  I’ve managed to avoid those – I was afraid of becoming addicted.

But the humour has gone at the moment.

Oh, blart – it was there just the other day – I was laughing like crazy – you, readers, couldn’t see me.  And you probably wouldn’t have had a clue – so serious did my posts sound – that, in fact, I’d hit my funny bone – somehow – I’d given some answers, or something, and then taken them away again – without realising, of course –

Ah!  The writing sometimes gets into the hands of – this is it!  I never realised.

Listen!  I was going to say ‘listen up’ – I think that phrase comes from a TV show I used to watch at one time – I know – a conglomerate of – this is what happens when you’re doing NaNo-and-what-else –

No time to spit!

Got to do that – can’t explain that now – too busy –

  1. I loaded on my free library app a very short but incredibly intriguing book by Rainer Maria Rilke who, in the first letter he wrote to a young poet, discusses all the things I need in my life about writing. It should take an hour or so to read the whole book…I read the first letter and I can’t stop thinking about it. I can’t wait to continue to read it.

    Perhaps you will get something out of it too? It’s called Letters to a Young Poet.

    1. Thanks for the recommendation – but I’m ‘snowed under’ – ha! – with a load of books that I’m re-reading and getting rid of if they no longer do anything for me. I’ll look at it some time.
