Rainbow Snail & Poem

The snail is intended to attract your attention, assuming you all like shiny, colourful things as much as I like snails. The poem is about NaNoWriMo, and is… well. It’s short, at least.

Research Snail

My friend the snail sits next to the words ‘Research Wish List’, because beneath it I have complied a wish list of books I want to help with research for NaNoWriMo; which I can’t get at the moment because academic books cost an arm and a leg. I just bought a leg’s worth, and I need both my arms for typing.

As for the poem, well, I generally dislike poetry and find it pretentious, which is unfortunate since I seem to get the urge to write it from time to time. This one was also inspired by NaNo.

NaNoWriMo Poem

For the updated version where the N in the second ‘November’ doesn’t have a raindrop mark marring its corner because it’s on your computer screen instead of a notebook I took out just as it was beginning to rain, (and there are also one or two minor word changes) behold:

POEM

~*~

November is coming.
The eight unfinished freaks shall soon welcome a ninth into their company;
And even the first line of this poem is a reference to someone else’s work.
Once again, the eyes of my imagination have overreached the stomach of my ability.
November is coming.
Shit.

Look out, Keats.
