Cousin: So what is Nano…nano-wy-rim-o?
Cousin: What is it?
Me: It’s National Novel Writing Month – basically you try to write a 50,000 word novel in thirty days.
Cousin: Oh. That graphic on your blog last week made it look like something more tropical. Like, at first I thought it was a writers conference some place sunny.
Me: Oh. Yeah, no.
Cousin: It’s getting really cold lately, right? Have you had to turn on your heat yet?
Me: Yes, heat came on last week.
So there you have it. In case you forgot.
NaNoWriMo: not a writers conference in Barbados.
Happy writing. :)
