Kevin Brennan Writes About What It's Like

Sometimes I write humorous verse… NaNoWriMo edition

NaNoWriMo crest

Lines Written on October 31

Farewell, my friends from NaNoWriMo,
I won’t be seein’ you as of tomorrow.

You’ll be obsessing over daily quotas,
And I won’t care more than — 2 iotas.

You’ll eschew that dreaded delete key,
And I will nap beneath a pine tree.

You’ll develop eye rings like bruises,
I’ll be cavorting with my muses.

In the end you’ll shelve that hurried novel,
And back to your family you’ll grovel.

Ultimately, my November’s happy,
While yours, I really have to think, is crappy.

    I love your snark, and I feel the same way about NaNoWriMo. I’ve got enough on my hands with my poetry- I’ll be enjoying November without the added pain!

      Can’t get enough snark! Thanks for visiting. BTW, I read some of your poems this morning — really superb!

    My wife encourages me to take up NaNoWriMo because it keeps me from groveling for at least one month out of the year.

      I think I see the method in her madness now… Good luck!

    Here’s my annual stick in the eye to all the NaNoWriMo people out there. All in good fun!
    Good luck to everyone who’s about to Roll Out For The Misery Tour! See you in December.
