Novel Approach 

Outlines and deadlines
November buckles under the weight of so many words 
Fingertips lift up and down 
People on phones make up stories about drones 
Or being alone
Fifty thousand drops of sweat
Lost bets
And then
Alone in a dark room with a lit face
Pace yourself now
Pace yourself 
1,700 calories daily
Thoughts dance on paper like Alvin Ailey
First day flops
Grammar, mechanics and usage cops
Ready to stop
Non-fiction fantasy
Biographical lenses and verb tenses 
Approaching high altitudes of attitude 
No mood for a novel approach
