Passion, it lies in all of us, sleeping... waiting... and though unwanted... unbidden... it will stir... open its jaws and howl. It speaks to us... guides us... passion rules us all, and we obey. What other choice do we have? Passion is the source of our finest moments. The joy of love... the clarity of hatred... and the ecstasy of grief. It hurts sometimes more than we can bear. If we could live without passion maybe we'd know some kind of peace... but we would be hollow... Empty rooms shuttered and dank. Without passion we'd be truly dead.

something that can help define him, something he can pick up and throw,
if necessary, or eat, or give to his girlfriend.

Also a quick note: the NaNoWriMo website has been reset so previous links to the forums won't work. But on the positive side, the forums are all shiny and new and everything seems to be working great!

I mean that I look at the tasks set before me
at the beginning of each day, and the checklist
is brand new without the stresses of the overall
workload.
