Quick Update and NaNoWriMo

So, a lot has happened in the last few weeks, and I'm now in the middle of some pretty heavy exam prep. The short version? I now have a lot more time to spend with the family and to write and study. My son became ill, and recovered, but he gave us a fright. I also have four assessments/exams starting in four days' time. Which brings me to NaNoWriMo...

I know, crazy, right? Why put myself under the pressure of writing 50,000 words in what will be around 15 days, when I'm under enough pressure already? Because I don't have to start until after exams, because I don't have to succeed, because I wanted to have a reason to focus on one project while I got back into the swing of writing, because I write to relax, because I'll need a break from spring cleaning and gardening, and because 3,500 words a day isn't that much, when there's little else on. So, no pressure at all.

Anyway, that's it in a nutshell. I'll post more on the 13th or 14th of November, when the dust settles and I've finished the edit and format of the delayed 365 Days of Poetry.
