Letter from Camp: Week Two



Letter from Camp Nanowritmo

Week Two




Dear Readers of my Blog,

It is the second week of Camp Nanowritmo 2016 and I have reached 33,000 words in my novel. If you missed my first letter, you can click here. The camp cook has left and we still have no kitchen. Spirits are up thanks to Mama Lynxx! She wrote our camp song. I really have enjoyed singing it. The tune is Oh Susanna"


 



Oh Na No Wrimos



Oh, I come from West Virginnie with my Blaster on my knee—
I'm goin' to the land of plots my story for to see.
I wrote all night the day I camped, my story it was dry;
I wrote until my eyes were damp — Wrimos, don't you cry.

Chorus:
Na no wrimos, don’t you cry for me;
I come from West Virginnie, with my Blaster on my knee.



I jumped into the camp canoe and rowed that wordy river,
My keys they flew, and then they slew, like arrows from a quiver.
My head was mush, and I was flushed, I really thought I'd die;
I shut my eyes and held my breath— Wrimos, don't you cry.


Chorus:
Na no wrimos, don’t you cry for me;
I come from West Virginnie, with my Blaster on my knee.



I had a dream the other night, when everything was still;
I dreamt I saw my novel done; and I was raking in the $bills$
A bacon taste was in my mouth, a tear was in my eye,
some chickens cackled once or twice and I knew my brain had fried.


Chorus:
Na no wrimos, don’t you cry for me;
I come from West Virginnie, with my Blaster on my knee.



My time now is almost up , soon I will be free.
And when I’m sure I’m truly done I'll dance a jig, you'll see!
I’ll kiss my comp and save it all, and then I’ll want to fly.
And these will be my final words–“ Wrimos , don't you cry.”


Chorus:

We are Na no wrimos, don’t you cry for us;
We came from West Virginnie, on the Nano Wrimo bus!.
We write all day, we write all night, until we are content.
This song is just a silly way for me to laugh and vent!








I hope you enjoyed the song. Here is a joke, I overheard at the campfire from a Mystery writer… 







How many mystery writers does it take to change a light bulb?

Two. One to screw the bulb almost all the way in, and one to give a surprising twist at the end.
