Spinning and Grinning
The National Novel Writing Month (NaNoWriMo) has run for nearly three weeks.
Bloggers, writers, novelists and other wordsmiths tirelessly tap their keyboards, racing to meet daily totals. No writer wants to be late for the final deadline: 50,000 words at the end of the month of November.
What does it take to spin a yarn worthy of readership? What key components comprise the difference between a successful book and a dust-gatherer, between a novel that sits in the library stacks and one that is checked out often?

The Spin Doctor –
A Rhyming Twirl as Tales Unfurl
I’d like to spin for you a tale,
To lead your thoughts beyond the pale.
The yarn, though coarse, may hold its spring,
To wind a story and to sing.
The wheel, a-whirl within my mind,
A dozen themes does intertwine.
A welcome ear I only ask –
And pray my pen may match the task.
Posted for a variety of prompts:
