Remember that one time my post went viral...

It was a year ago and I shared this post on twitter and @NaNoWriMo retweeted me to their bajillion followers and I was instantly super famous...or at least as close as I'll ever get to going viral, haha. ;) To this day it is by far my most popular blogpost read by thousands of people and still one of my favs.

So while I'm not participating in Nano this year (I just drafted a 100K word book in two months and I'm taking a break), I'm a big believer in the magic of Nanowrimo and thought I'd share that poem again as a way to say "Go go go!" to all of you doing the crazy Nano dance this month.

10 Things I Hate About NaNoWriMo

I hate the way you're hard to spell and even worse to say.
I hate it when your site goes down in the middle of the day.
I hate the month you choose to live.
I hate your taunting graph.
I hate how all my buddies read my word count with a laugh.
I hate how much my hands hurt and my eyes and rear end too.
I hate that all my words are crap.
I hate staying up 'til two.
I hate it when you're over and my life's no longer stalled.
But mostly I hate the way I don't hate you, not even close, not even a little bit, not even at all.

Hang in there all. You can do it! Butt in chair. ;) I believe in you!

How many of you are doing Nano this year? Tell me how it's going!
