Typing Insanity

I'm about completion, not numbers, but "winning" is always fun.

Waking with one thought
too similar to, “Oh no,”
I realize I’ve committed
to Camp NaNoWriMo.

A mountain’s worth of words
awaiting my invention
an insane amount of work
requiring my attention.

It’s a labor of love
where I love the insanity,
it’s the fingers flying
while I forget to eat.

Okay, it’s just one thought,
one word, and one scene,
and then another and another
until I’m screaming—with glee.

No worries, it’s just a novel,
another climb, another charge.
Sure, don’t mind the look in my eyes
saying, “Beware, Manic Writer at Large.”
