I am learning, I was thinking

I never learned to cry with style, silently, the pearl-shaped tears rolling down my cheeks from wide luminous eyes, as on the covers of True Love comics, leaving no smears or streaks. I wished I had; then I could have done it in front of people, instead of in bathrooms, in darkened movie theaters, shrubberies and empty bedrooms, among the party coats on the bed.

November 30th… Say Good Bye!!

I was thinking, NaNoWriMo

November 30th everyone!!!

It’s the last day of NaNoWriMo which means one of two things, either:

Like me, you already have the purple euphoria inducing bar shining on your NaNo profile, CONGRATULATIONS!!

You did it, it wasn’t easy, and you must feel a little crazy at the moment, but the feeling is worth it.

Or, you have those few hundreds, or maybe thousands of words slipping away from your grasp and making you want to pull you hair out or worse, give up.

Don’t do it!!

Just keep on writing, there is still time till midnight strikes  :)

I hope everyone reaches their goals, either the famous 50k, or their own personally set word counts.

Every word you put on the screen is important, it is a part of you, a part of a great story that you must tell, so enjoy the ride, there is little left to the finish line.

yours  truly,

Seekingsomepeace :D
