It's Gonna Be Interesting

It's gonna be an interesting November. No, I am not doing NaNo, but I will be writing. I've just been challenged by Lori to a race. Granted, it's a not a fair race (yes, you heard me, Lori: It's NOT) -- she's set a date for the completion of her rewrite, and now she wants to race me. She wants to see if I can finish the first draft of A Long Way From Here (code name: Crap, the Novel) and type "The End" by the same date. She has a real sense of humor, don't you think?

Anyway, even though I seriously doubt I can even type fast enough to achieve that, I need that extra kick and all the motivation I need. So I accepted the challenge, and may disappear for the next 40 days and 40 nights.

Meanwhile, I still have the readings in New York to contend with, plus another book signing the day before the election, plus a fiction workshop I have to prepare for. And some other things. Not to mention the turkeys and giblets of Thanksgiving.

Oh, I guess I'd better get goin' now. Wish me luck.

Is it illegal to place bets on both sides?

Go Ray! To quote a friend, 'Write like your face is on fire!'
I'm rooting for you, Ray. Get that novel finished! Go write!
