Wordle 134: The Journey

Well, I am still totally absorbed by National Novel Writing Month and enjoying every minute of it. Today I achieved a new personal best by writing 10,575 words and my total for ten days is now 53,426. I have met the challenge of NaNoWriMo (which is 50,000 words in the month of November for those who might not be familiar with this wonderful insanity), but my novel is not yet finished and I’m not sure just where my protagonist is taking me or how much longer the road is, but that is totally fine by me. After all, it is the journey, not the destination. And so my poem for The Sunday Whirl reflects my obsession.


The Journey

Navigating my way
through Nano Land
striding confidently,
my year-long vision
clear in my head
as I drill through
layers of ideas
in an instant,
humming as I miss
the obstacles of
writer’s block and
refusing to buckle,
working with dignity
and grace to gain
in the end,
a completed
rough draft.
