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.
