The Month Of No Dubious Writing Bloggerel

Just a head’s up —

NaNoWriMo is a big ol’ cork-pop of “writing blather,” so I’m going to take December off.

I mean, I’ll still be here. Blogging as I do.

Just not about anything related to the art, craft, or practice of writing/storytelling/publishing. I reserve the right to change my mind if something particularly compelling comes up that DEMANDS MY INEXPERT OPINION, but otherwise, this is a solid ban.

I’ll still talk books and stuff because — hey, year’s almost over and I have favorite reads to detail.

Otherwise, it’ll be food and toddlers and coffee and a post I’ve been working on for quite some time now, which is about the very nature of happiness in our lives. It sounds all serious, but I’m sure I’ll still find a way to include unnecessary references to poop, genitals, unicorns, hobos, maybe badgers, possibly wombats. I gotta be me, after all.

So, there you go.

  1. Not sure about the rest of that, but I’m with you with the cupcake eating. I stayed up late last night making three dozen chocolate buttermilk cupcakes with cream cheese frosting and little sugar flowers for a baby shower – which I then couldn’t go to today. So I have a fridge full of yummy. Let the cupcake eating begin.

  2. I don’t mind letting go of the writing for a little while. I’ll let the NaNo-story cuddle up with the advent-bread(it’s baked with saffron and it’s delicious), and wait for it to rise accordingly. December in this part of the dark northern atmosphere is all about light, and today all the christmas lights are lit around the country. Can’t wait for the article about happiness. It’s all about going your own way, having a cheerful attitude and plenty of imagination, isn’t it? It is for me. ๐Ÿ™‚ Happy first advent, Chuck and Chucksters.

  3. I should also take a moment to say a big THANK YOU to you folks — November ended up being the biggest month we had in 2013, and will help make this year the biggest year this blog has ever had in terms of actual clicky-clickies.

    • I take pride in my small part of this. My region went through November, brewing the ink, slinging those pens, creating beard-altars and enforcing conversions to the glory of the Wendigo as I maliciously abused the linking power an ML has in November.

  4. If I bake you cupcakes will you lay off the unicorns? I’m thinking: carrot cake cupcakes with lemon cream cheese frosting; lemon and poppy seed with lemon curd frosting; orange and cranberry cupcakes with cinnamon frosting. Seriously – I’m planning a day-after-Christmas tea… ๐Ÿ™‚

  5. But I LIKE your dubious writing bloggerel! And my book is well past 50K but not done, so I still need it!

  6. You were a good nano encourager, so thanks for that! I had tried a couple of years and gotten all the way to 4000 words, so this was a big step for me. The loser talk slowed me down a little bit, but I got over it. It’s good to reach a goal, especially when reaching it means being able to write every day on into the future. Now for some cupcakes!
