A spring in my step and a wish on my mind...

I woke up this morning with a spring in my step.  Definitely a nice reprieve after last week's bout of stomach grossness (the correct medical term) and overall blah feel of the week.  This time of year is lovely in many ways, but the cold air and less light just put me in a funk for a little bit.  It's Nanowrimo time.  I, however, am doing a version called Mini-Nano, where you make a word count goal for each day.  When I did Nanowrimo, I could never finish, but when I started participating in Mini-Nano I found I did a much better job because it was a smaller word requirement (though I'm wordy and tended to write more than my minimum) and I could work on multiple projects.  Day one went well.  I made my goal, which was great considering yesterday I was dead on my feet.

Today is Wishcasting Wednesday!  That's always a nice spot to the week.  Jamie asks us:

"Sometimes you've got to let everything go - purge yourself. If you are unhappy with anything . . . whatever is bringing you down, get rid of it. Because you'll find that when you're free, your true creativity, your true self comes out." - Tina Turner

This week's answer is simple and yet sometimes so hard to do - isn't that always the way?  I wish to nourish myself through creativity.  I want to continue to branch out creatively.  I wish to make time for being silly and playing and creating without feeling guilty about the things I'm not doing during that time.  I want to create more and through that get to know myself a little bit better.

What an awesome idea with the mini-wrimo (and I agree, an awesome quote), Mare.

I was reading a post from a blogger the other day who's doing "blogowrimo", and trying to write something like 50 posts over the month of November. I love the idea, but have decided it would cause me more stress than it would offer me benefit, so I chose not to take part, despite it sounding like an awesome idea - maybe next year?

As you wish for yourself, so I wish for you!
