Could it be any cooler? No. It could not be any cooler.
Anyway, I was reading it (and cracking up!) when I discovered that on the bottom row are the elements :
Do (do) and Dn (do not) and
Tr (there is no Try) and I thought, "Now wait a minute, Jedi Master."
There IS a Try.
Because sometimes we start things that we aren't even certain if we can finish them, so we challenge ourselves. Is it the not knowing that makes the challenge all the more.....um...challenging? I mean, if I knew I could do something, and then I did it, well, that would be wonderful, right? But what if I didn't know if I would be successful, but I threw myself into it anyway, wouldn't that be even more risky? And wouldn't the pay-off be (maybe) even more wonderful?
Perhaps because I lead a fairly safe life, I test myself by taking risks in my writing. I start things that I have no idea how to finish. And sometimes, I have not finished them.
But other times, that Try turns into an accomplishment.
With that in mind, I am going to Try my own twist on NaNoWriMo--NaNoFiMo. I will be attempting to finish a book. I am about halfway there.
But even if I don't make it, the cool thing is that I will be a lot closer than I was.
Take that, Yoda.
(Or "That you will take," for those who understand Yoda-speak.)
Who's with me? Who else is going to Try something this November?
