NaNoWriMo Recovery: Fit as a…

Nobody ever says “piano around.”


PROMPT: Feel free to fiddle around today. But if you are sadly fiddle-free, any old piano, penny whistle, or didgeridoo will do.

NaNoWriMo Recovery: The Slow Way

A great place to hang out today

They are slo-mo specialists.

In fact, they move soooooo slowly that algae form on their fur.

They also know how to put some serious POWER into power naps…

like, 20 hours a day.

They are sloths…

this week’s Mind’s Elbow mascot.

PROMPT: Embrace your inner sloth today. How slooooooow can you go?

Letting Go

Congratulations! You've made it through NaNoWriMo, PiBoIdMo, Black Friday, and what I like to call Black and Blue Saturday (in honor of you, Cindy).

Without a doubt, YESvember was awesome!



But now it’s time for a different kind of R & R.

Yeah… the REST and RELAXATION kind.

Without a doubt, you've earned it.

And guess what —

Kicking back is as key to the creative process as all that kicking butt.

“NOOOOoooooooo!” you might be saying. “I can’t stop now! I got so much done in November — I think I can do even MORE in December!”

Trust me, Cupcake, MORE is the first three ingredients in a recipe called Burnout.

So chill out, hang loose, and let go of all the stuff you did last month.

It’s officially R & R week here at the good ship Elbow.

Let it go.
Let it roll right off your shoulders.
Don’t you know,
The hardest part is over…
~ Rob Thomas

PROMPT: Kick back and sing along. Here’s your Little Wonders link.
