Wrote this one for you:

On Thursday I met a gentleman with a handlebar moustache. He had no intention of shaving it off to begin a fresh growth for the international moustache growing month of Movember, but chatting to him gave me an idea for a story … and in the US of A this is also National Novel Writing Month…

November has thirty twenty-four hour days (believe me). So if I write one 300-word page an hour (and that’s on a good day) I must set aside five hours a day to write 50 000 words by the time you’ve all grown your moustaches and saved the planet. But where do I find a spare five hours a day during mulberry season? Even if I resist the temptation [crazy laughter] to make gallons of juice, jam and shortcake, the berries won’t rake themselves into neat little piles like they did in Camelot. So I guess I should join the National Blog Writing Month effort instead…

But it is tempting. If I set aside the forty-five minutes a day I spend looking for my cell phone, plus the half an hour I spend looking for my keys, postpone breakfast and lunch until suppertime, and spend all day in my pyjamas… No, frankly, I stand more chance of growing a moustache.
