This NaNo will be my most autobiographical NaNo yet. I will write “Meatful Things”* next month, the story of me and my compost pile, and all the things that
did could go wrong… So how many ways can a compost pile go wrong? After all, nature makes compost piles every day, all around the world. Business as usual…
You add people.
I mean, unless you add the wills and whims of people into the making of a compost pile.
So what goes into the compost pile? Apple cores and onions skins?
Coffee grounds and tea leaves?
Bacon grease and chicken bones?
Well, that’s not recommended.
But pigs and chickens decompose in nature just fine.
How about litter box crap and offal from the neighbor’s hunting trip?
No way! But I see you’ve already taken the liberty… I see the compost pile is steaming and teeming with flies…
Yep, back to nature. How about I add-
No! Don’t say anything more! The compost pile is out of control. I don’t wanna know what you’re gonna add next…
It’s my spookiest NaNo to date, and it’s in the spirit of the season. Speaking of compost piles and Halloween, these creations are gonna end up in my decomposition pile in a few days…
Like this guy…
