I haven't been doing any creative writing for what seems like forever. I haven't even had the urge. National Novel Writing Month is coming up in a week and a half. For the past three years, I've participated, along with thousands of writers across the nation, in a quest to write a 50,000 word novel in one month. I wonder if I should undertake the challenge again.
I have no ideas burning within me or even flickering shyly anywhere within reach. The exciting thing for me is just sitting down and writing and seeing where my thoughts take me. Always, from nothing comes something.
In the past NaNoWriMo challenges, I've found that an hour and a half of writing every day does the trick. That's not an unreasonable chunk of time.
In conclusion, if I can come up with a "novel" idea, who knows where I may travel in the month of November and how I might get there.
