Nut November

Why Nut November? Because November has several nutty names, including:

  • NaNoWriMo National Novel Writing Month. Write 50,000 words in one month. Ironically, nano also means one billionth: .000000001. Try writing that many words. Easy.
  • No-School November For those of you with children in the public school system. Teacher conferences, parent-teacher meetings, Thanksgiving vacation…
  • No Nut November Uh, never mind.

But let’s remain positive and celebrate Nut November with the introduction of a few nutty characters…and warning: depiction of private parts and a bit of crude humor!

Lots of nuts bump into each other as the day’s events unfold.

A lot of seedy characters show up, turning Nut Day into a throng of rowdy crowds.

Thank you for joining us for another rousing Wander in a Box. I did say in the previous blog that we’d have a little chat about NanoWriMo, but I’ll keep it short because NaNo is a lot of work, unless you’re only writing that one-billionth of a word! Ready, set, go…

Next time–introducing Syncopated Logic: Life in the Twenties featuring Hankry Grunt and his wife Hankrietta. And yes, where’s my reference to literature?

I love the links between life and literature, and couldn't get by day-to-day without a little humor. Here's my place to share thoughts and discoveries in bite-sized pieces, illustrated by my sister Morra Morron. Enjoy!
