Everyone lean back, take a deep breath, and have a few gulps of water (or maybe a whiskey). National Novel Writing Month 2020 is over. November was a packed month with a lot of different things going on, but I like where I’ve ended up, generally. Continue reading “December Write Day: NaNoWriMo 2020 Wrap-Up”
All others away,
except those dedicated
or out of time off.
Beating the traffic
and gathering for presents
well before the rush.
I’m sensing a pattern here, in that each month seems to pass more quickly than the last.
This post is a week late because I wanted to finish “The Grand Mythos”, so we’re already almost halfway through December. Oh well.

Throngs of people mill
between store fronts, hoping to
find holiday cheer.
The holidays are usually somewhat stressful for me. Just making sure I’ve find appropriate gifts for people and can get to all of the family events is more than enough to think about.
Work has been stressful this week, largely because I was trying to wrap up a lot of things before being off for a few days.
But, I am off today, and thankfully, have some time to get shit done.
Writing this week has been terribly slow. Work has been a bit more stressful than usual, sapping my mental energy by the time I get home, not to mention the (inevitably) last-minute preparations I have had to make for the holiday this weekend.
