So a couple months ago, it was taking FOREVER for library books to come in at the second library I use. I was putting a few on hold every week, thinking they'd trickle in eventually, and well, I might get to read such and such book in a few months.
Well, then they mostly fixed the problem that was making it take so long (though I've still got one that's been in transit since AUGUST), and a BUNCH started coming in. So now my account summary looks like this:
Also, a few months ago, I decided to preorder the Royal Ranger book that comes out tomorrow. Because I've been anxiously awaiting it and scouring the internet for news about it long before it was even announced. Will and Maddie are going undercover as jongleurs! I'm so excited about it! And hoping it'll actually come today. Sometimes preorders do that.
I also put a book on hold at my main library. Which is currently sitting unread because I've got others that will be due sooner.
And then I decided to do NaNo. I need motivation to actually sit down and finish draft 2 of Acktorek 2. I fully intend to finish this draft (estimated 40,000 words) by the end of the month.
I committed to two sign waving shifts on election day, and then remembered, hey, that's during NaNo.
There'll be Thanksgiving later on this month.
I'm participating in Black Friday sales again this year.
And there are a lot of changes going on at work.
But I fully intend to get all these books read, finish this draft, fulfill my sign waving commitment, and keep up with work and teaching (I mean, I have to do that), and watch The Mandalorian every week 😉, so I very well might be crazy.
And if I'm barely around the internet this month, I'm not dead, I'm just swamped with things to get done because I'm crazy.
