An Ode to NaNoWrimo

3 Comments

I haven’t been very present here these days as autumn has proven to be quite a hectic this year.  Don’t know that the next few weeks will be any better as I decided to partake in National Novel Writing Month, but I decided to stop by and leave the following poem.

I’m a writer, or so I say.

But I haven’t had very much published to date,

Outside of that which I blog to create

Coherent re-tellings of true life mistakes.

But lately I’ve heard,

From other denizens of Word-

Press say they’re all signed up for NaNoWrimo.

50,000 words in just 30 days.

Just thinking about it puts me in a malaise.

“Oh you just have to join” the WP denizens say.

“And you can add me as a buddy”, well shoot I should say okay.

Reluctant yet curious, I clicked on right over,

To sign myself up for this daunting endeavor.

And now there is just one week to go,

Before I must show

That I can write more than 1,600 words a day.

Right now when I log in,

My profile page looks empty as sin.

The  word count meter is currently set to zero.

Which doesn’t make me look like a literary hero.

But somehow, I know I can do it.

If any of you are signed up for NaNoWrimo, do feel free to add me as a buddy.  I’m using my WP username, NMNPHX, over on the NaNoWrimo site as well.
