#100HappyDays: Day 62
National Novel Writing Month



For those of you who are knee-deep in the online writing community, chances are you've heard of the wondrous annual adventure that is NaNoWriMo. If you're new (or possibly completely uninterested), then allow me to regale you.

NaNoWriMo, or National Novel Writing Month, is an annual write-til-you-drop race with the goal of crossing the finish line prior to midnight on November 30th at 50,000 (or more) words written of a manuscript.

That's it. There aren't any confusing rules, and it's simply a way to motivate yourself to write, edit-free for a full month and knock out that novel you've been thinking about for months but haven't made the time to write.

I look forward to it every year and I'm excited to read through what I've written after November comes and goes.

Do you take part in NaNo?

You know, you don't really notice it, but purple appears quite frequently in nature. When I think nature, my mind immediately imagines greens, browns, and generally all kinds of neutral colors, but purple is everywhere. It's pretty awesome.

Without further ado, the One-Eyed, One-Horned, Flying, Purple People Eater by Sheb Wooley:



Great, huh? I don't remember when I was first introduced to this all-sorts-of-wonderful song, but I'm pretty sure it was care of my Mom. She definitely has provided quite a bit of the humor in my life, and I'm sure she's one of the big reasons…
