November is a much celebrated month among my kind – the writer folk, that is.
It’s known as NaNoWriMo, or “National Novel Writer’s Month” for those of you without close writing friends. “National Novel Writer’s Month” is a mouthful, so it’s no wonder that my kind decided to abbreviate it as NaNoWriMo.
Plus it’s just kind of fun to say. (I know you’re repeating it to yourself as you read this!)
But of course, going around saying NaNoWriMo makes me sound like a gibberish-speaking idiot, unless you know what I’m referencing. Either that or you’re thinking that I’m uttering a secret code – which is truer for those of you with writer friends.
I promise you, no such pretense is taking place. It’s just an abbreviation.
