NaNoWriMo Day One

1 Nov

That was a surprise!

National Novel Writing Month

National Novel Writing Month (Photo credit: Steve Rhodes)

As you know, I signed up for Nano to prove to the Hub that I don’t have a novel in me.  I started two hours ago with the first line in my head and a vague idea of what it might possibly be maybe perhaps about.

1749 words later, which I found surprisingly easy to write, I have four definite characters, a rough plot outline, a mini-cliffhanger ending to the first chapter, and a smug Hub saying, ‘I told you you could do it.’

The story so far: A deserted mother; two spoiled children; one chaotic day.

I can’t tell you any more because I don’t know what happens next.  But I can’t wait to find out!

I hate it when the Hub is right.

I hate it when he’s right and it’s to my benefit.

I wonder if I should add a murder?

 

A Labled Easy To Follow Leg

1 Nov

It’s that time of the month – here are the searches that found my blog in October:

 

Searches are the only times I love grammar (grammatical?) and spelling errors

The pickings are feeble so it’s time for a poem.

Last month, Bluebee invited her readers to make poems from searches.  She posted my first attempt here.  Be warned: there’s a lot of hair.

I enjoyed the exercise so much, I’ve had another go.  You should try it!  

Here is today’s poem:

why dont americans like electic kettles

i saw the ghost of gloria gaynor standing at the foot of my bed
a labled easy to follow leg
fat moped girl my butt is big
bearhug in sweden man with bump in head

I enjoyed those one-liners* the other day so much, I treat you to some more, courtesy of Tim Vine, via the Telegraph.

  • Exit signs?  They’re on the way out!
  • Eric Bristow asked me why I put superglue on one of his darts.  I said, ‘You just can’t let it go, can you?’
  • I saw this advert in a window that said, “Television for sale, £1, volume stuck on full.”  I thought, ‘I can’t turn that down.’
  • Do you ever get that when you’re halfway through eating a horse and you think to yourself, ‘I’m not as hungry as I thought I was’?
  • Velcro?  What a rip-off!
