Middle-age Butch to embark on crazy writing journey

Dear Flannel Files Followers,

Your favorite butch is taking leave from blogging and her sanity for the month of November. Yes, I will be partaking of National Novel Writing Month.  For those of you who are not familiar with NaNoWriMo, it’s a commitment to write 50,000 words in one month.

Melissa EtheridgeConsider it challenging and insane, like trying to count the number of lesbians at a Melissa Etheridge concert. 59, 60, 61 … Did I already count the one with the short hair?

I have an idea for a novel. And very little free time.  Which should make for an interesting combo.

Plus, I’ve never written a novel before. Or even fiction for that matter.  I’ve always found enough material examining my own life, self-involved butch that I am.

I will try to check in once in awhile. Because I just can’t quit you people!

Fifty thousand words in 30 days. Talk about crazy.  Talk about butch.

StraightjacketSend good thoughts or straightjackets, in flannel, preferably.

If you’re doing NanoWriMo this year, give a shout back. Misery, company and all that good stuff.

Middle-age Butch



P.S. Supplies purchased today from big box store.

    Love the supplies. I am clearly not as prepared as you are.

  2. Yay! Me too! Can’t wait to read your book.

  3. I’m there too, as ‘Widder’ … gonna be a blast!
    The word count breaks down to about 1600 per day … we can do that easy-peasy. Right? 😀

  4. My NaNoWriMo account name is Professor_Awesome. Want to be my writing buddy?

  5. They missed a trick not calling the popcorn Unskinny Pop. Now I’m going to be humming Poison songs all day…

  6. This is my fifth NaNo – nothing like it. So much fun – enjoy!
