If you follow me on facebook, you already know that once again NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) has taken over my life and with great joy I have allowed it to (as will 200,000+ around the world!)! Here was my creativity before I jumped into my third historical novel “Sir Michael’s Mayhem.” So for the sake of silliness. . .
‘Twas the night before NaNo and all over the world
Fingers were stretching to write their first words.
Computers were warmed up and coffee mugs did appear
For NaNoWriMo was finally here.
50,000 words in thirty days
Madcap writing and lives in a craze
To keep up with that word count dost
To be considered a “winner” at any cost.
Word widgets and badges and guilt monkeys galore,
A Viking, a ninja, throw those in and more!
Without warning plot bunnies might strike
But we must keep writing till November 30th at midnight.
So why do we do it? This made dash to write?
When we put the rest of our lives on the back burner each night?
Because there’s a deadline and everyone has a story,
Only some of us quit when the going gets gory.
So press on to the winner circle, my Wrimo friends!
It’s the only way that this month should ever end!
And I’ll celebrate with you as we collapse in a heap,
Rubbing our carpel tunnel wrists as we fall fast asleep.
