The Rules of NaBloPoMo

(My rules, anyway, inspired by the Fight Club rules. I don't know what Mrs. Kennedy's rules are).

1st RULE: You do not talk about NaBloPoMo.

2nd RULE: You DO NOT talk about NaBloPoMo. I'm serious. After Nov. 1st, quit writing about it and just do it.

3rd RULE: No whining. If you whine, I will delete you from my Bloglines and Blogroll and crush your bones in my teeth. This isn't brain surgery. It is a blog post a day for a month, fer goodnesssake.

4th RULE: It doesn't have to be brilliant. Write a stupid post already. Literally a stupid post. It wouldn't be the first time somebody ever wrote a crap blog post. If you need reassurance, just read my archives. Do not be afraid. There are no NaBloPoMo referees.

5th RULE: Only one post a day, that's all you need. See Rule #3.

6th RULE: No recycling old posts. No one likes a cheater.

7th RULE: If you miss a day, bow out gracefully. Or keep going and don't mention it.

8th RULE: This was your idea. So just do it already. It's spozed to be FUN! GO!

har. my favorite is the no-recycling one. (not that I'm joining. I'm too chicken. I just enjoy that you pointed it out. it's boring when people do that. if I want to read your old posts, I know just where to find your archives. serious.)

Excellent. I have just finished reading about 10 posts that started with something along the lines of "Today is the first day of NaBloPoMo. I'm so nervous."

Just do it.

You know what I like best about NaBloPoMo? The logos. Last year, the logo was a beaver. This year it is a pussy. Oh, Mrs. Kennedy is a woman of my heart.

Bossy is a little more than slightly annoyed already. And, yes, that's about as aggressive as she gets.

So, did you actually act like the joiner you aren't and sign up for the silly thing this year? Or are you just aiming for another of SJ's Golden Shit Stirrer awards?

For the record, I'm following your rules, without even having read them in advance. I thought about not signing up this year, but decided I needed to give myself that little push again. Haven't mentioned it on-blog, though here I am polluting your comments. Oops.

Oh, and Suzanne? I think it's your influence that made me type my name as Cuntry Mouse just now.

Aye Aye! Ma'am!

Jessica said...

Are those rules for you, or all of us? Because I don't think I can blog without whining....

ByJane said...

man, you are scare-y when you're stern.

Juliness said...

You are so awesome!

I was having a bit of a momentary crisis today, so I DID mention NaBloPoMo in my post. Twice. But I am over it. Promise.

Suzanne said...

Sorry Country Mouse. I tend to warp people that way. Funny, though.
