It’s only the first of November (All Saints Day) and already the stress is beginning to build. NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) has begun. What prompted me to make that commitment is vague, but I think it had something to do with half a bottle of Chianti Classico.
Reading some posts this morning before embarking on 50,000 words of novel madness, I discovered that it is also NaBloPoMo (National Blog Posting Month) and AmInHeMo (American Indian Heritage Month), both of which I have more than a passing an interest in observing, but I’m uncertain how I can manage it. What with celebrating NoBeZoMo (Not Being a Zombie Month) Veteran’s Day and Thanksgiving. If I dared to go Christmas shopping on Black Friday, there wouldn’t be minute to spare. It’s a good thing I don’t participate in that insanity.
How will I find the time? Luckily the clocks roll back an hour this weekend. Don’t forget to set your clocks back, unless you don’t observe daylight savings time. You’ll be an hour late for everything if you do. Also, don’t forget to thank a Veteran AND Don’t forget to VOTE!
Who knows, I may not be celebrating not being a zombie after all! Elections season is almost over and soon NaStYOMo will be a vague memory. (Until the mid-terms.) Enjoy it while it lasts!

I’ve decided to ignore any National Writing Whatevers, all posts talking about National Writing Whatevers, and especially all posts complaining about National Writing Whatevers! 😀
Judging by the last five posts I’ve read, this should significantly reduce the [New Post] load and (maybe) allow me to catch up on followed bloggers. It’s either that, or I have to post a new post begging everyone to please just stop blogging for a while….
LOL – I have been thinking all week about how stupid it is to start something like this when my life is so crazy. I’m mounting photos tonight for a show Saturday, there’s work, and the whole Zombie thing – but the truth is I would never find the time, so why not. It’s only a novel. 🙂
Exactly. No time like the present! When you begin to fade, just think of those poor zombies with their brains hanging out, lying prone on a pile of Hershey bars. That will be me on December 1st!
Haha! My grandma used to say “Know how you eat and elephant? One bite at a time.” That’s all you can do.
You almost got me sucked into that blog posting month deal. Of course I had to check it out. I met my daily word goal for NaNoWriMo, so I was feeling cocky. So Honie, practice saying this with me: “Hell, no!” Maybe even tape those words to your mirror, your monitor, your ambition…..
SMACK! Wow, I could have had a V8!
LOL! Thanks 🙂
take a deep breath! breathe! 😉
Like this? heee heee hoooo – heee heee hoooo 🙂
If you’re going to pass out – do it from the Chianti Classico, not from hyperventilating! Love your sane craziness.
