...on the occasion of WriPoMo!

Of course, November is more officially known as National Novel Writing Month. But I don't need to jump-start a new novel right now, so instead I'm going to try to write a poem a day. When I made this decision, I thought I'd soon be the proud new owner of a CPAP and thus better rested, maybe less depressed. Alas, the supply store closes at 4:30, so more likely it'll be two weeks before I can get there. Nevertheless...

Today I am working on a two-part poem about a unique worker and the efficiency expert assigned to study the worker in hopes of extrapolating his technique to employee guidelines. I transcribed part one, focusing on the worker, from my journal to computer yesterday, and it felt more solid than I'd expected. The notes for part two, the efficiency expert's POV, are much sketchier, but since it's a response, it can take shape and direction from part one. I hope to finish a draft of it today. When I do, I'll post it as a friends-locked entry.

To paraphrase AC/DC: For those about to write, I salute you!

Oooh, a new CPAP? What model are you going to get? Do you need a prescription to buy one?

Also, good luck on NaPoWriMo!! I'm doing an AcaWriMo, gonna write my last dissertation chapter this month!

Yep, I needed (and got) a prescription for it. It will be my first CPAP. I used a nasal mask during the 2nd half of my sleep study, and they said it worked well for me. I still woke up a few times, but more from the novelty of wearing a face-hugger than the apnea.

Good luck on your AcaWriMo. Last chapter! I admire the fortitude (and smarts!) it takes to get that far.
