The Man Your Man Could Write Like

Folks have been sending out Movember sponsorship e-mails all afternoon at work, so I sent this:

Hello, Posties. Look at the man in this picture. Now back to me. Now back at that man. Now back to me. Sadly, he was me. But I stopped growing facial hair and started using my razor, so he won’t look like he’s me again!

Movmeber the 27th

Look down. Now back up. When are you? You’re at the end of October, with The Man Who Doesn’t Look Like The Man In The Picture. What’s in my hand? It’s the outline for the novel draft I’ll be writing in November instead of turning back into The Admin You Don’t Want Your Admin To Look Like. Look again. It’s the end of November and the outline is now a 50,000-word first draft of an action-packed sequel to H. G. Wells’ The War of the Worlds!

Anything is possible when you stop trying to grow a sad-looking straggle of facial fluff and start writing a novel as part of National Novel Writing Month! I’m on a chair.

I am eternally grateful that I don't have to spend the month of November wanting to hand you a napkin to wipe your mouth.
