As the month of November draws near
So does the annual burst of creativity
Where writers around the world
Embark on writing a novel.
My intent this year
Was to compose the fifth book
Of my detective series
Alas, it appears to be for not.
Not because of work
Which is a time-suck to begin with
But because a new idea
Has been poking my brain.
A sports romance is now in the cards
I know it sounds like an overused trope
However, this time the pairing
Involves two females, instead.
For now the detective story is shelved
And I anticipate writing about curling
I just hope I can keep my plot ideas
Underneath their wool kilts.
