The one thing I must, absolutely must take away from the A-Z challenge is that I need to write every day.
The challenge has been excellent for this, with the added incentive of not wanting to disappoint people who have come to this blog (and thank you everyone who has) by not abiding by the challenge.
I have to write. Even if I'm utterly uninspired. Even when, on occasion, I wake up to it lurking in the corner like a hairball coughed up by the muse-cat overnight. Even when the policeman in my head is wearing riot gear and preparing a baton charge on my feelings of adequacy. To spite all of these things, words of some kind must be ejected from my head and recorded.
Regardless of their final form, the words must come out.
