Twas The Night Before Nano

Today is Halloween. But, also the night before NaNo (Nation Novel Writing Month) begins. During the month of November, writers cheer each other on as we all book toward a 50k word goal. It’s motivating and fun. I wrote this a few years back to cheer my crit partners on, and every Halloween, I post it. So, here we go again 😉

Happy, plentiful Words, Nano peeps!

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 sprints

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
