So Many Questions

Dear Cheer Peppers,

What’s all this talk about Nano Poblano?

Why am I hearing about it just now?

Who are these peppers so chatty and cheerful?

Where do I upload my writing, and how?

One post a day for a month – are you crazy?

How can I manage to fit all that in?

What if I’m stranded on some desert island

Or dressing a turkey, or driving? What then?

Do I sound anxious? A bit apprehensive?

Am I afraid I’m not up to the task?

Yes, yes, and yes are my own honest answers

(To say otherwise would be too much to ask.)

Don’t get me wrong, I admire your focus

Your writing commitment is stunning and brave

But me, I’ll admit that I’m often quite scattered

Besides, I don’t think I have that much to say.

But hey, what the heck. I’m a sucker for challenge

Just dare me to do it and do it I’ll try

So I’m dipping my toe in the great Nano River

I’ll sink or I’ll swim but I won’t come out dry.

The water’s refreshing! I feel so much better!

Is that my reflection? And is that a smile?

I’m wading in now on the first of November

Please throw me a pencil; I’ll be here a while.

  1. This is too perfect, pretty much sums up everything I have felt before and this made me laugh a lot Lori, especially about being stuck on an island or dressing a turkey. I’ve done several NaPoWriMos in April in the past and Cheer Peppers last year and I don’t feel it gets any easier, as each day is a fresh new challenge. However, it is a challenge that I relish. Hard work does bring great rewards and the opportunity to connect with many other talented individuals. I’m grateful to have the opportunity to connect to you and enjoy your posts every day too 🙂
