I just thought I'd drop by to say that, no, I haven't abandoned writing since John's creativity experiment wrapped up.
But I have been working on a novel that I'd been think about and playing around with for years but never actually got around to working on more than sporadically. I've hooked up with a writing group on Ravelry and this month there's a challenge going on. I committed to writing 25,000 words this month and am already at 16,765 words. Maybe I set my goal a little low, but I think it's more about getting in the habit of working every day, whether I feel like it or not. Whether I feel inspired or not. From that perspective, the whole thing is working out marvelously.
At any rate, I'm around, I'm writing regularly, and I'm feeling good about that.
