Red Barbarian Needs Food--Badly

No, I'm not hungry. I'm just running out of energy. I'd been kicking ass on NaNoWriMo, writing better than my 2000 words a day, and then I was nailed with a bunch of stuff all at once. Grading, planning, writing tests. Yesterday I thought I was getting seriously sick, and had to take a long nap just to finish grading.

I know--whine, whine, whine.

So my novel is hovering just over 10,000 words--about 3000 words behind schedule now. I might be able to catch up over the weekend. It's not like I don't know where the story is going. I have more notes than I'll have novel when I'm done.

But that's why I haven't been blogging. I'm getting crushed.

I'll try to be better.

There appears to be something seriously wrong with that cat.

::looks back & forth between Jas & Jer:: Ya know, you BOTH need to get some immune systems.

Hell, either that or we'll order you both plastic bubbles. =)

Plastic bubbles like hamsters!

I'm doing the November whatchamacallit thing, too.

You are kicking ass. *slumps away to type quotes for word count*
