This song is for everyone who participates in National Novel Writing Month.


This November I'm gonna write a novel in 30 days
and by December, I'll type "The End" on the last page
I've got some music. I've got my shiny new laptop
And now I'll use it as I sit down at the coffee shop

But everybody thinks I'm crazy

But I've only got 50,000 words to go
Before the end of NaNoWriMo
I thought that it'd be easy but its not
Yeah I've only got 50,000 words to go
Before the end of NaNoWriMo
I've got everything I need except the plot

I've got a trusty side-kick. I've got a strong protagonist.
There's a central conflict but a weak antagonist
I've got a cliched setting and at best my plot is trite
but at least I'm getting some time to myself at night


Who decided to have Thanksgiving this time of year?
Don't they know I'm trying to launch my writing career.
