December blew in like a hurricane! I feel like this is my first opportunity to sit down and breathe. <heavy breath> Every year this month is difficult, what with the end of the semester grading, students complaining about grades, holiday parties and concerts, shopping (I hate shopping. True story: This year at Kohl’s, after about 30 minutes of shopping, someone took our cart, which had many items in it. We hunted and hunted, to no avail. Furious, I started trying to re-find all the things I’d already found, when Andy, thank goodness, located the cart in a part of the store we had not visited. Did I mention I hate shopping??!?). This year seems crazier than in the past. Maybe I’m just getting old.
So, how did NaNo go? It went well. My goal was to finish the third draft of my Cinderella story. I was unable to do so in November, but I finished on December 11. (Maybe this is the reason for the added craziness.) Of course, lying in bed on the evening of December 11, I thought of several things that needed to be changed, added and altered. So although I’m “finished” I am still working on it. All you writers out there understand that! Still, it is good to have an ending. If I’m run over by a bus today, someone can read the whole story.
Although I am breathing again, I still have lots to do. It will be nice to cross off “NaNo update on blog” from my list.
Here’s wishing you all a happy holiday season!
