Coming home, I saw Orion for the first time since the snow melted. Seeing Orion in the fall, to me, is a sign... a sign that another year is drawing to a close, that it'll be winter soon; almost like the outdoors is closing up shop for a while. And while this time of year is my favorite, there's a great deal of sadness mixed in with the happiness--a sense of time moving on and moving away from me. This time of year always makes me introspective, and this year, what with my coming milestone birthday, is more so.
And so I've definitely resolved to do NaNoWriMo this year. I have nothing to lose, and I'll never know if I can seriously write unless I try it.
