THE FACEBOOK SONNET

by Sherman Alexie

Welcome to the endless high-school
Reunion. Welcome to past friends
And lovers, however kind or cruel.
Let’s undervalue and unmend
The present. Why can’t we pretend
Every stage of life is the same?
Let’s exhume, resume, and extend
Childhood. Let’s play all the games
That occupy the young. Let fame
And shame intertwine. Let one’s search
For God become public domain.
Let church.com become our church.
Let’s sign up, sign in, and confess
Here at the altar of loneliness.

June Stats

Originally posted on Bethel College Novel Writing Month:

I refuse to say I “didn’t finish” because finishing a novel in a month really wasn’t the point, but I will admit I fell short of my page goal. My goal was 300 and in June I only got to 226.

So, here are my June stats:

Pages written: 226
# of days I wrote nothing: 5 (I found it hardest to write while on vacation and then again while away for a weekend softball tournament)
# of full notebooks: 2
# of completely drained pens: 6
# of empty notebooks waiting to be filled in July and August: 5
How close to a completed first draft am I: I have no idea, but I don’t think I’m past half way to a finished first draft yet. 50,000 words is a very short novel, really.
# of days I’ve written since the end of June: 2 (today will make 3)
