Grapes, Beans and Straightjackets

Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas

Well, in a little over 27 hours, thousands of deranged (hmm…dedicated?) writers will start typing their rendition of the “next great (fill in country name) novel.” And I am no exception. Yes, I am talking about NaNoWriMo 2011.

To review:

Characters? check.

Plot? check.

Time scheduled to write?  check.

So what’s left to do?

As Mr. Duke might say: “Supplies. We must have supplies.”

A quick stop at the local Starbucks has produced a pound of coffee beans, Caffe Verona to be precise, which should last me through the first week. Maybe.

And for those times when things don’t go right – a bottle of Catena Malbec, straight from the highlands of Argentina.

The only thing missing? The straightjacket some of us might need on November 30th.

And we happily sign up for this?

I know I can’t wait. Can you?

P.S. Someone talk me out of going first person on this one. There may not be enough wine.
