Tomorrow is a Friday!

     I'm quite grateful, with this cold, wet Novemberish-October to follow up a hot, dry Augustish-September, that the drought situation in my state has taken some great strides for the better. Wonderful.

     Hard to believe that tomorrow marks my 11th service anniversary working for my employer. This year sure went fast--feels like I just had that big 10th anniversary celebration!

     I might be trudging along this week at the rate of about 1,000 words per writing session, but I'm very grateful that: a) I'm still moving forward! b) My tortoise-like plodding this autumn has finally gotten me to the 90,000 word mark for 2009, and 3) That things are still moving into place on my outline. More like a Jordan River than Red Sea crossing here--I have to stick my foot in it first, instead of seeing my way far in advance. ;)

Wow, you're right! That year did go quickly. It didn't seem like that long ago that you were writing about your 10th service anniversary.

Glad to hear that the drought is easing up your way too. As much as I have grumbled about the gloom and the colder weather, I have been very grateful for the rain!

And if you thing 1000 words a session is plodding, I won't tell you what I've been turning out! Great to hear that progress is being made.

I still remember all the fun of trying to decide what to buy with that $100 gift certificate as though it were just a few months ago!
Rain is a good thing, even if it gets tiresome after a time. I'm a bit tired of using my umbrella, anyway!
1000 words on a weeknight isn't bad at all, but I keep expecting/hoping to get 'sucked in' and I've been too exhausted and distracted for that to happen. So I guess I'll just keep trudging!

He's going to get all red-faced, any moment now! ;D

That is good news with the rain, we got almost 2 inches here and it
has revived everything.

Going on your 11 year work Anv., it seems like just yesterday you were
celebrating your big tenth. Time is just flying!
So Good to hear about all your progress on the writing front.

Hope your rain didn't do too much damage; I was hearing some complaints from Californias/West Coast folk on the Windstone Forum.

Time really is flying! The daughter Lisa brought in for Take a Child to work day is the reason I got a temp job there--to be trained for her maternity leave. Hard to believe!
