NaNoWriMo Oh Noooo

With October dwindling down and November rapidly approaching, Stevie has been… subtly… reminding me that National Novel Writing Month is on its way as well. To be frank, last year even though I participated, I definitely didn’t commit. So this year, despite my addiction to procrastination, I am going to do better. Mostly so he stops judging me (gosh).

In this, our nearing time of extreme productivity, I feel it important to remember certain rules bequeathed  to us from on high by the late, great Vonnegut. (Kurt Vonnegut is up in Heaven now).

And thus, our Eight Commandments:

Vonnegut - Creative Writing 101

So I’m going to focus on all that above while trying to ignore my word count and how much I will inevitably fall behind. 50,000 words is a hell of a lot, folks! Even when you’re allowed to repeat some of them….
