NaNoWriMo is FoSho
Folks, get ready to dress in all black and drink coffee non-stop. That's righ, It's decorative gourd season, motherfuckers! — which, in all honesty, means it is also National Write a Novel Month.
Break out the Moleskines and dust off you favorite literary plot twists ... like those secret 40-year-old dwarfs ... because this month I am writing a novel. A trope and work of literary genius that you sorry saps have never before seen. You will be so moved you will laugh, cry and gush blood from every orifice.
There will be action, booze, adventure, women, booze and intrigue... did I mention booze? Whiskey most likely.
Sure, I have subjected you to the rantings and ravings of one lone drunk here these past six years, but this will be different. Probably only because there will be less swearing... maybe.
To be honest, by the time Dec 1 rolls around I might actually find that I have nothing more than a 50K-word Wednesday Weekly post. But you jerks seem to enjoy that kind of painful treatment... and, well, I am not one to deprive my vapid audience of those pleasures.
Hell, if this project fails at least I can fall back on the fact that it is also No Shave November.
Remember this guy?
Sure you do. That mustache says, "Yeah, I've been naked in front of a camera..."
So who will join me and write a Novel — and grow a beard?
