…and that is all I have so far. Approximately 350 words of stuff I saw while sitting in the coffee shop between classes, trying to come up with an idea that would willingly coalesce into something vaguely resembling a story, or at least something I can make into a book cover, at the very least.
I re-read the beginning of my zombie story from last year (I fell off the wagon at around 12,000 words), and I liked some of the stuff I wrote in a rough sort of way, which is interesting because at the time I wrote it, I was tearing out my hair and shouting “It’s all crap!” at the top of my lungs.
I want to write again. I really do. It’s not even about the word count, more about being able to look back on something and see a glimmer of hope. So I’ll keep trying.

A part of me wants to do Nano this year, and the other part doesn’t much care to. I don’t even have an inkling of an idea this year, but I feel like I should write something. I’m so out of practice, and it feels like any talent I may possibly have had is slipping away. I should at least try. I think I will.
