Crunch Time

I can't believe it's been a week since I last posted! My apologies to anyone out there who's been missing my pointless diatribes.
It's been a crazy week. As you already know, the hubby and I went to the festival of trees on Sunday, and then on Monday I had coffee with the Wizard (the former Writer in Residence, Alice Kuipers). That was really, really nice. I don't know what it is about that woman but she gets me revved up in a way no one else can. It's positively magical, hence my nickname for her, the Wizard of Oz.
The rest of the week has been a whirlwind of writing, working and stressing.
Including today, I have just four days left to complete my novel for NaNoWriMo. I'm exceptionally far behind, currently sitting at just over 32,500 words. Which means I have just under 17,500 words to write in these four days. Hmmm. Yikes. But God knows I did not sign up for this month of writing frenzy to quit four days before the end. And I'll tell you what else. I did not sign up to lose. I signed up to win, and I intend to. Which of course means I should be fairly frightening looking by the end. So friends and family can look forward to that.
And there we have it. You're caught up with my week. I hope you'll all cross your fingers for me that I come out of this successful, alive and still somehow manage to get my HerStory stuff turned in on time as well. (So, miracles people. Pray for miracles). I don't know if I'll have time to post before November 30th, so in case I don't - I'll see you on the other side.
