Garrr....

I'm getting close to suffering from writer's block...

So for tonight's blog, we'll have another episode of "What's on My Desk?"


Today's "What" is my NaNoWriMo toy collection. In all reality, the toy collection is actually bigger, but these are the only parts living on my desk right now. On the left, a bouncy ball, for throwing at the wall when I get frustrated with writer's block. On the right, a mini-koosh, because they're awesome. In the middle, the 2007 Plot Bunny. I've decided to make a new plot bunny for myself every year, because in October I always get super-excited about NaNo and can't wait to start writing. I actually started an Etsy site, and I plan to sell some of my plot bunnies, because it's always nice to have some extra cash. Of course, I'll have to make some first...

In any case, I love my Plot Bunny. I made one for Heather, one of my MLs and my good friend, as well as for Betty and Heather, the co-MLs of my previous group. For those of you who don't have any idea what I'm talking about, you should go visit NaNoWriMo. It's a lot of fun. Some people take it very seriously, and some take it very lightly. I use it to get myself started on a project. I've finished one, trashed another and restarted it, and temporarily abandoned another... but I do have plans to finish it! NaNo is definitely NOT for everyone, but I've had a lot of fun with the people I've met.

I don't think I get writer's block...I think of it more as writer's apathy. It's probably the same thing, but I just tell myself it's only because I'm lazy because even if I'm not getting anything done it's nice to think I COULD...
