I didn’t get to dress up for Halloween, but I did sing in Evensong so I still got to sweep around town wearing a black gown. Tonight is NaNoWriMo Eve — it isn’t even November yet, and I’m already behind: behind on housecleaning, marking essays, my own research, least of all planning the novel that I’m going to write in the next 30 days. Note the faint strain of panic, everyone, and wish me luck.
