National Novel Writing Month is just around the corner. I got my “click this button or lose your account” e-mail the other day. Time to start getting prepared.
November 1, some 10,000 crazed, would-be authors will sit down at typewriters and word processors with the goal of churning out 50,000 words by the end of the month. This requires a lot of coffee, Krispy Kremes, and a properly conditioned butt.
It isn’t possible to sit still long enough to write 50,000 words in a month if you haven’t prepared your hindquarters. It takes dedication, determination, and a complete disregard for personal appearance. You need all the padding you can pack on between now and November 1 to succeed! Do you want to win? Do you want to see your name among the hallowed few who have completed this inhuman act of endurance?
Then get out there, get yourself a bag of Snickers, and get to work! Precious little time remains!
