An Ode to NaNoWriMo Mamas!

An ode to the NaNoWriMo Mamas:
Sleepless nights, we’ve been there
Tantrum toddlers, we don’t fear
Take out dinners, gulping caffeine
Give me a second while I finish this scene!

Untucked child whining from bed;

Unruly characters refuse to be led

We panic, we cry, we procrastinate

Feeling a bit sick from the junk food we ate

Family support, cheering friends

Blast us through fears, give strength to the end

50K words not as tough as it sounds

A NaNo Mama leaps it in one single bound!

(Yeah, right!)

Congratulations to ALL NaNoWriMo participants, winners or not! We are novelists!
