Random realizations and coming to grips with it being November already.

November. First, what the hell? This year is just flying by. It might be the lack of oppressive scheduling, or maybe time does go faster when you’re having fun. I’m not sure and I probably don’t want to know. I feel like it’s safer not knowing the secrets of the cosmos. At least, not the real ones.

Second, to all those doing NaNoWriMo, best of luck. I’ll see you on the other side. I’m not participating this year, partly because I have no idea what my work schedule is going to look like and partly because I started the novel I’m working on the middle of last month. This one has been like pulling teeth, slow and painful, since I cleared the third chapter. So, enjoy the mad dash to the end of the month and may you have nothing but smooth writing. I’ll meet you there, hopefully with the zero draft of this novel done.

There’s not really a third thing. Only whatever random bits float through my mind. I have a long to do list, that’s mostly cleaning. For some reason I seem to focus better while there’s laundry or dishes being done. Then I actually get the other stuff taken care of too. I’m weird. I already know that.

It’s nice to be back in my office. I migrated out when it was too cold in here to type, but despite the lack of curtains and actual heating vents, it’s nice in here. My caulking job this past spring worked. It’s true test will come in a month or two when the wind is really howling, but for right now, I’m content with the office floor.

Now that I’m back in here, I have my lists and spreadsheets and calendar where I can see them. It’s a tad more formal and exactly what I needed right now to get my ass in gear again. That and some music. I’m not a fan of listening to road noises, not when I could be listening to some good music.
