No Nano for you!

Well, it looks like a writing gig I’ve been hoping for is finally coming to pass. It a short-term assignment that’s been pushed back three times now. The client will take me on full time or part time, so I’m going to do it part time. Don’t have all the details yet, but it will likely run for two months. Coupled with my other job, I’ll be working around the clock, meaning there’s no way in hades that I can do Nano this year.

I need  the moola, I’ll enjoy the gig, and it’s completely off site so it’ll work on my timeline. A no-brainer. Gotta take it. Now. Feast or a sit-down dinner of rolly-polly fish heads. Always.

Damn work, Damn it, I say.

I'm with Charles. I realized last night how tired I've been feeling lately.

Hope the new job goes well.

So, maybe we should do NaNo in Januo, then? Because hellacious lots to do seems to be my way at the moment too. I still have to write an October short story, too! Yipes!

i've been trying to decide if i should do it, too, but since i'm moving 11/15, possibly travelling for biz for 3-5 days at the beginning of the month, and desperately hoping to go to hawaii with a friend over thanksgiving, it's not looking too good.

@Synergy boy...yeah, Nano in Jano! A could other friends might join us. Good way to start the year!

@Lauren...moving? We need to catch up! Well, with all that on your plate for November, Nano would be torture. Don't torture yourself, that's for your friends(:

About Me

My photo
This is me and one of my two cats. His name is Cougar, and he’s an F1 Chausie. A chausie is a new breed of cat under development. Chausies are the result of a cross between a domestic cat (in Cougar’s case, a Bengal) and a jungle cat (Felis Chaus). Cougar’s mom is 8 pounds and his father is a 30-pound jungle cat. He’s about 16 pounds, super intelligent, spirited, and toilet trained. A writer without a cat (or two) is not to be trusted.
