I dislike feeling this restless without any clear way to scratch the itch, so to speak. Because of this I am considering what are probably foolhardy and unrecommended courses of action.
I am currently bandying about the idea of doing NaNoWriMo. This is crazy for many reasons, not least of which is that I am lazy and have never done something like this before. Granted, these are not good excuses but really fears. I know I'm OCD enough to make it work if I put my mind to it. I'm also wondering about logistics. How will I write over Thanksgiving? Is that kind of a loss going to be that big of a deal breaker? Should I go ahead and get a cute little laptop?
I'm also considering cooking to be a possible outlet. This gets weird when I mainly release the creative spirit on weekdays after work to put something on the table. On the other hand this suits my creative personality perfectly. When I knit, I tend to be a "gift knitter" as I give most things away. I have gained the experience, made someone happy with the product, and can move onto the next thing without regrets or worrying about mistakes made on old products. Sometimes the creations don't always turn out right (inedible pasta carbonara, bleeding beef, holey mismatched weird knitted stuff) but I can always start anew soon.
Last on the list of things I'm unsure that I should do is buy stuff. Not indiscriminately, but stuff like maybe new computery things, or books, or DVDs. Just stuff that'd be fun to play with and distract me for a while.
In the meantime I intend to devour books and think very hard about the wedding and the fact that we're rapidly approaching the 6 month mark.
