(Parody) Still Alive NaNoWriMo


In approximately 12 days, writers everywhere will embrace NaNoWriMo.  The internet is alive with chatter like the following:

  • “Are you going to participate this year?”
  • “Do you have an idea in mind?”
  • “I’m going to lock myself in a cabin for a month so I can write a book.  What about you?”
  • “I like to outline my novel before I start NaNoWriMo.  What is your approach?”
  • “What foods do you eat during NaNoWriMo?”

I tried NaNo last year, but didn’t reach the required 50,000 words.  I’m not sure if I’ll do it this year.  Perhaps I should.  Maybe it would motivate me to complete my 2nd novel.  Hmm.  I still have 19 days to think about it.

In the meantime, I offer the following to all you NaNo writers out there.  May the force be with you and may the odds be ever in your favor.
