This job isn’t funny

It’s November, which means it’s NaNoWriMo, which means I’m once again, for the sixth year straight, trying to write 50,000 words in 30 days. After just two days, I am not optimistic for this year. Foolishly I decided to attempt to write a satire about a public defender’s office. That was foolish because, frankly, this job isn’t very funny. Sure, I work with a bunch of funny people, most of them fascinating characters in their own right who amuse, anger, frustrate, and entertain me on a daily basis, but that doesn’t change the fact that what they do is deadly serious and really not very funny at all.
