For a very long time I’ve had no pictures in my head. No stories to tell, and no time to tell them. It has been a source of worry: Yoram Kauffman says that “the ability to generate images and relate to them is a measure of mental health.”

No essays to write, no marks to make.

The good news is that sitting down and putting pen to paper begets creativity. The muse is in the perseverance.

I was scared that I would dry up during this National November Daily Blog Update Month. But so far I’ve had so many ideas that the possibility of a creative drought is unlikely.

Sitting down. Doing the work. The muse shows up.
