I'm not late. I'm hurried and a bit overwhelmed because too many things came due on the same day, and I didn't plan very well so ended up having to do a lot of things all at once. But it's still Wednesday, so my ROW80 check-in is still on time. So I'm not late no matter how it feels.
I do still have a newsletter to finish up for tomorrow. I have my critique group meeting tonight and need to stop for cookies because I ran out of time to bake them last night. I have a painting to finish for an Audubon Society fund raiser (that's due on Friday). I have a bit more planning to do for NaNoWriMo. So, busy busy. I need to stop and catch my breath. I'm doing so much right now that I literally feel breathless and have to remind myself to slow down.
That's really my check-in today. I've been doing some planning, no actual writing, some fiction reading (mostly for critique group), lots of NaNo work on the forums as people have a million questions as things are getting started. I checked in with my ROW80 team.
I am looking forward to Friday and a day off of work so I can sleep in and focus on my brand new, shiny novel. Until then, gotta run! I'm late, I'm late...
