You Didn't Really Expect Updates in November, Did You?

Just a brief drop in to let you all know that no, I did not die. I am, of course, consumed as I am every November with banging out a 50,000 words novel in 30 days. If you have no idea what I am talking about, you have not been paying attention. Maybe you can catch up by looking at the writing blog The nth Word, previous posts about NaNo (here, here, and here). You should probably head over to the NaNoWriMo site too.

Since we last spoke I have taken down all of the Halloween decorations (which took depressingly little time). I reorganized them into giant tupperware containers (which took
forever) and shlepped them out to the storage facility (which took three trips). P and I did a little post holiday shopping on the 1st. The Halloween stores don’t want to ship and store their merchandise so stuff gets severely discounted. It also goes really quickly so we hit them early. She picked up some items for her growing graveyard and I replaced the fogger which died unexpectedly Halloween night after so many years of valiant service.

A moment of silence.

There has been quite a bit else that has gone on during the last two weeks. There have been changes at work, a
GLAHW meeting (the party did quite well), and I need to rant about Christmas carols taking over the radio already.

All of that is going to have to wait because my dinner just got here and I’m famished. If I work up a little word count cushion this weekend I’ll be back.
