The Night Before NaNo…

Posted Oct 31 2011, 1:28 pm in , ,

For all those who don’t know, I have no power and will probably be playing catch up for the rest of the week as I borrow internet from my mom. For anyone waiting to hear from me, thank you for your patience! I promise, I will get to you. 🙂

I wrote this several years ago and have posted it ever since. It’s a tradition and I refuse to let a silly little thing like no power stop m because it wouldn’t be October 31st without it!

Good luck and happy word counts to all the NaNoers out there! 😀


Twas the Night Before NaNo

Twas the night before NaNo, and all through the house

Not a creature was stirring, not even the spouse

The pages were stacked by the laptop with care

With hopes that a contract would soon be there

The writers were snuggled, all warm in their beds

As visions of royalties danced through their heads

I with my coffee, and my crit partner with her mints

Had just settled in for the mother of all sprits

When inside my kitchen, there arose such a clatter

I sprang from my chair to see what was the matter

Through the hall, tripping over the trash

I skidded to a stop and saw a bright flash

The clock on the wall gave quite a show

The Cuckoos dancing to let me know

The hour was close, she soon would be here

It was time for the NaNo fairy to appear

  1. I died laughing at this. Good thing to know that NaNo causes this much weird anticipation in other people too. 🙂

  2. I died laughing reading this. Good thing to know that I’m not the only one who sits on pins and needles waiting for NaNo. 🙂

  3. […] Jus Accardo, author of Touch will be stopping by in a few days to give her opinion on NaNoWriMo. But until then, read her extremely funny post about “The Night Before NaNo.” […]

    This is a perfect description of the madness that is NaNoWriMo
