Ahh, November! So full of surprises! So flexible! So yummy! November is the month to increase your awareness of: Pancreatic Cancer, Alzheimer’s Disease, Lung Cancer, Ulcerative Colitis, Diabetes, Homeless Youth, and the Transgendered among us.
It’s also the month set aside to celebrate Adoption, Pomegranates and Novel Writing. The Roman Catholic church dedicates lovely November to the Holy Souls of Purgatory.
It’s a pretty full month. You’ll need a few extra minutes each day to fully appreciate all its causes and remembrances. You’ll need a LOT of extra minutes every day if you hope to write 50,000 words of a novel to “win” at National Novel Writing Month. What’s a geek to do?
No worries. The Geek Girls have searched far and wide to bring you a solution — and here it is:
NO SHAVE NOVEMBER!
That’s right, geek gals, give up your razor for the month, grow some insulation on your legs for the coming winter. And for you geek guys, we offer:
Let your chins get wooly while you contemplate whether the next sentence in your novel should be punctuated with a dash, an em-dash, or an ellipsis. There’s even a website dedicated to the process, with pictures!
Warning! Some of the boys on that page are cute. Don’t spend too much time staring at them, okay? After all, it’s still November — you’ve got lots to do!
