The Long A*s*s Day

So tired.  Man, it was a long ass day.  Too tired to write.  Another MoFoNo  NaNoWriMo / NaBloPoMo / NaShoStoWriMo opportunity missed.  Good night.

Oh, November

Oh November, already you start with the unexpected.  It appears first week in will be a busy one, but when asked if I could help out a family member; the reason for this request had only one answer:  Of course, I can help.  I'll do whatever I can.

Happy November!

Here's what I'm up to:

It’s National Novel Writing Month, or NaNoWriMo. People who are crazy ambitious enough to accept the challenge aim to write 50,000 words in November, which is about 1,667 words every day. This is what my effort is looking like... 200+ words my first day. Here's a sampling:
