I've spent the whole day thinking about friends: how much I love mine and how much I'd like to squeeze some of them although they are far away and I have never actually squeezed them in person. How I've drifted away from some and reconnected with others. How I wouldn't be the person I am without them.
I'm going to tell you a truth about NaBloWriMo: you will make a new friend this month. I'm telling you this because it's been the case for me every year and looking over your blogs, I can't imagine that it won't be true this year.
Please go and visit the other bloggers in the blog roll. Even if their blogs don't look like your cup of tea, even if they write about something you find baffling, read them. Make a friend.
I promise you it's going to be worth it.
Hope your second days have gone spiffily!
