NaBloPoMo (5) and (6)
Here I go again...missing daily blogs. *slaps own hand* Stop it!
Thursday: The hardest part about a beginning...well...is actually beginning. Of course, I'm speaking from a procrastinator's point of view. For instance, I've been saying for years upon years upon years that I was going to write my novel, but never started it (until this past November). So, what was so hard about beginning? I think in this case I was just scared. Afraid of failure. Will it be good enough? Can I actually do this? Sometimes it takes a crazy notion, like NaNoWriMo, to get a person to take that first step and that's what happened to me. Sure, I may not have finished, but the point is that I began.
Friday: I do not wish that the start of the year was in a different season. Number one, Winter is my favorite season. I just love the cold. Plus, I really couldn't imagine the new year starting anywhere else, but after the most wonderful time of year...Christmas. For many, Spring is a season of renewal, but I always look at Winter and January as a time of renewal and new beginnings. I wouldn't change that for the world.
