Playing Hookey

There's a blanket of snow out there this morning.
It makes it feel like I woke up to a whole new world.
A clean slate.

My NaNoWriMo word count is over 7000 words.
As I write I keep Anne Lamott's "shitty first draft" in mind.
It helps me just write and not edit as I go.

Some days blog posting is like that, too.
Hitting the publish post button before I edit,
feels like I'm playing hookey or something.
Methinks I take it all too seriously.
Especially for being a kid.

My shitty first draft is not only shitty but at a standstill. Better luck to you!
