This feature used to be called “Oversharing w/ Cassie” but I have realized that really this is just about me sharing moments of my life with anyone that decides to read this. If you do read it, thank you! I appreciate you.
Today normally would be a “Marvel” review, but I wanted to write this instead. I am allowed because WHY? IT IS MY BLOG GOSH DARN IT. One of the things that I have always wanted to do was write a book. My entire life, I have wanted to be able to put some words down and know I created a book. Regardless of how many readers it had, I wanted to know that I had left at least one work in the world. I kept putting it off though. Largely due to issues I have with allowing myself to do things I want and constantly holding myself down. Something that I feel would be good for me, I often say no I am not allowed to do that. Writing has been that for me. I have not allowed myself to do it, out of fear. Out of feeling that I am not worthy to write. As I am working through these horrible voices that tell me I am not worthy to write through therapy, I can say I am getting to the point where I can finally say, “Listen punks, I am going to at least put some words down in a little word document on my computer. I am allowed to do that.”
This voice that says I am allowed to do this writing finally is telling me that I have a great opportunity to be part of a community this month because there is an annual event in November. It is called NaNoWriMo. It is a month to write! The goal is to write 50,000 words during this month. This means I need to write over 1,666 words a day. I am wanting to write a mystery novel book. I have had 3 ideas in my head for some time. One was a comic book idea I had, but that I could easily translate to a book. One is a mystery novel. The other is a more literary piece about homelessness. While I want to eventually write all three, I think the mystery novel is the one I have fleshed out the most in my head. That is why I am going with that one. I really want to do this! I hope you will all be supportive of me while I try to achieve this goal.
