*has Tyrion do his kitten kneading on my busted up old carpal tunnel left wrist* I’d still be writing. YES… I realise I still technically (literally as I type this) am writing for the day, but this is gonna be so short and sweet, I’m not even doing it in Pages first for a change….

NaNo So Far… I’m going to start doing a weekly roundup (depending on how long it takes me to hit the 50K mark) for NaNo this year, but I feel wretched that I missed yesterday’s IwaC *no excuse other than I procrastinated and I’m sorry because I didn’t have the time I thought I would……
