Everyone knows that music can have a power effect on someone's mood. You play hard fast music to work out to, and you play slower softer music to relax. You listen to sad songs and you listen to bright songs.
I have been trying for two weeks now to have a good bowl of soup at lunch time. Not a great bowl of soup - I have not been going to 5 star restaurants - but the inability to get a good bowl of soup amazes me.
So, NaNoWriMo went well. I managed to hold it together for the last week and in fact finished a couple days early. Well, I passed the 50,000 word mark early, I made some changes to the ending a few times right up to November 30th.
As I am sure the one or two of you who read this blog with any regularity have noticed I have not posted in quite some time now. The single largest hurdle to writing for me has always been the idea. Once I have an idea I can generally write three or four blog posts but without that idea nothing else works.
I was planning on using this post to start tying together my philosophy and my political views into a cohesive thought. However the current political environment has so burned me out and frustrated me, I do not believe I could do justice to that original idea. Instead I will discuss some of what is going on now and what I think about it.
