25607 words. All I wrote for Nanowrimo. And most of it was added after I posted the chapter. Loads of stuff I won’t show. Because the file will likely gather dust like my 2011 attempt. Which needs to be posted. Sooner or later.
But, yes, this past week has been, to me, hectic. Hell, this month has been hectic. With me and Nanowrimo and time constraints and other crap going on, I was getting at the end of my tether. Mix with a bad gym schedule, and you had a guy with a reaaally bad month.
Still, this past week was pretty okay. Thanksgiving came and went, much to my dismay: We were supposed to cancel it, but I wake up Thursday morning to find Mom prepping the turkey. *shrugs* It was half-assed anyway, most of the stuff was from packages.

Brooklyn Tweed’s Hemlock Ring Blanket. I always wanted to make it, and now that I got enough yarn to make it, it doesn’t take a genius to cast on. Right now, I am in-between skeins right now. Heck, I am not done with the Point of Libra No.2 yet! I have been constantly distracted with other things to worry about the shawl or the other things on the needles.
At least I have the gym.
