Thanksguh-oh Update

And, while I'm at it, a real life update and warning about this week's posting schedule.

I have family members coming out to see me this Thanksgiving Weekend and a ridiculously full Thanksgiving Day planned, so this week's posting schedule is likely to look like this:

  • Tuesday: A post is nearly a certainly.
  • Wednesday: A post is quite likely, but not definite (I'll be making a pie!).
  • Thursday: I am incredibly unlikely to post.
  • Friday: A post is unlikely, but not as unlikely as Thursday.

I'll make an effort to create an extra post on Saturday and/or Sunday to make up for Thursday and/or Friday, but no promises at this time. NaNoWriMo remains my primary concern.

Seriously, whose bright idea was it to put National Novel Writing Month in November? November! Month of the first truly lousy weather of the year, the beginning of Seasonal Affective Disorder for those so inclined, Thanksgiving and its wild mess of relatives, cooking, and recovering afterwards, and, frequently, college and grad school finals. What's wrong with June? Nothing happens in June!

That being said, I wish each and every one of you, personally - even those of you that never comment - a happy and healthy Thanksgiving. I hope you all survive your families enjoy your Thanksgiving dinner and whatever pre- and post-Thanksgiving activities you have planned.

Hey! My birthday is in June! Also, for people on a quarter system, that's finals.

The first NaNo was in July. Chris Baty says he switched it specifically to take advantage of the lousy weather, actually.

Don't get me wrong, November is possibly the worst month ever.

OMG, so you're it. I actually do have a reader in New Zealand. At first, I thought the analytics data might be misleading... but there it is.

Wow. Nice to meet you.

I will certainly think of you when I consume pumpkin pie.
