I noticed something interesting during this years NaNoWriMo. While I was struggling to put out as many words per day as possible on my story, I was also getting all kinds of idea for things I wanted to write blog posts about. Of course, intuitively you’d think that frivolous things like blog posts would take away from the more important task of writing my alloted word count, but the truth is I almost couldn’t stop them. During the times when I was most productive on my story, I was also almost compulsively productive with my blog.
Its almost as if creativity is a like a high wind, and when you start to open the door to it, it yanks the door open and rushes into your mind with a frenzied gust of ideas.
