“NaNo” said Mork


BUT…..I’m not talking about “nano, nano” as Mork from Mork & Mindy would always say. What a shame, such a fine piece of our culture is off the air, and without reruns no less.

Today is the official start of NaNoWriMo (National Novel Writing Month) for all who dare. I am going to take the plunge and attempt to write a 50,000 word novel by the month’s end. We’re talking roughly 1667 words per day to stay on track. I’m pleased to report that with only 4 hours left in the first day, I have written…….nothing. The stress of figuring out what to write and where to begin, just swallowed me up today.

I started thinking about my blog writing. How could I do both? I had to figure it out.  I couldn’t disappoint my 8 followers. Lord knows I had to beg them to read this. And yes, the money I owe you all is on the way.

The pressure was so bad…..I forced myself to visit friends and partake in their coffee. Then, I made myself purchase Halloween decorations (50% off).  There’s nothing like a 12 foot zombie to clear one’s head. After the torture of shopping, I took a trip to the Burger King drive thru, where I proceeded to call myself a fat bitch, who needs to exercise, while eating my 1968 calories worth of God knows what. As I drove home, feeling the grease consume my every pore, I realized something. I don’t know what the fuck I’m going to write. I don’t know if it’s going to be total crap or just half-crap. The beauty is, I never know what the fuck I am going to write. AND….what I write now is probably mostly crap or half-crap on a good day. Who cares? No one said it had to be great. I just have to make the word count. AND….maybe in the end, it might be worth a read. If not, we can always use it when we run out of toilet paper.

  1. So far I enjoy reading what the fuck you write and look forward to reading more.
    I toyed with NaNoWriMo but now that I’m finally working again I need to work mo and save mo money, but the “good” news is that my 7 1/2 readers can look forward to updates about my adventures as a bigtime salesman.

    1. I won’t break from this, it’s my outlet each day.
      I don’t know about the great American novel or even a sucky one, but I’ll try to make the writing goal and see where it leads me.
      I’m glad you like this blog so far. Hopefully I won’t disappoint. Your writing is something I enjoy as well.

  2. Why not use this blog as your project? Who says it has to be a novel? And aren’t your blogs “novel” enough? They could be turned into a book.
