I had no idea this month would be that crazy.
I am still trying, and I am slowly but surely adding words, but I am afraid I will not “win” this NaNoWriMo.
First, my older brother got engaged. This is very happy, and I have little to do with the planning, but it is planning.
Then, my own engagement has finally gotten a light at the end of the tunnel.
My fiance is Scottish, so we need permission from the US government to get married and for him to live here. It’s a two-step process, and we finally got the first bit of approval last Friday. We are now planning to get married by the end of the year.
This is all happy, happy news. But it is taking a toll on NaNo. Not to mention that I am working on PhD applications, the Scottish fiance will be here next week for a visit, and Thanksgiving/Christmas season is starting. Needless to say, I am lucky to be chipping away at the count at all.

Technically, I should be sleeping.
