NaNoWriMo 2012


So apparently I’m doing NaNoWriMo this year? Well, according to this very accurate drawing. Note the red back of the chair (I just recently bought a red leather office chair for my room), the notebook with the red pages (a Writable if I’m not mistaken – I bought one from, the fountain pen (it’s a given. I’m using a Black Lamy Safari at the moment) and the ahem pink bra (it really does look that way by the way…)


Well, we’ll see if this one works out. Last year I got to about the halfway mark… And that was WITH some semblance of an idea. Right now… I have a nun and an investigator. I really should start eating cheese before bed – maybe the dreams will be enlightening…

A sigh

Wet tongue
diving between lips,
like a furious backstroke
and steady kicks causing waves.
A hot flush
breaking water with a gasp,
forming a slow ‘o’ of the
choking back the last sound
that shatters, falls and sinks
between the pitter-patter
heated skin.

A nun and a private investigator. This might be an idea for NaNoWriMo…
