So it’s week two of NaNoWriMo and I’ve fallen behind at last. I was doing very well that first week, but the weekend was a mess. Southern Honey and I had to run lots of Thanksgiving-related errands on Saturday and on Sunday afternoon. Then I had to run up to Cardinal City for training today, and I got stuck in traffic.
By the time I managed to get to the hotel, I was pretty much exhausted. I did some writing, then tried to sleep. I should have passed on the sleep and done more writing — I tossed and turned all night and ended up not hearing my alarm. Woke up twenty minutes before I thought I was supposed to be in training, rushed out the door, and barely made it on time. Except that they had pushed back the training by fifteen minutes. *facepalm* All I have to say is thank heaven for Holiday Inn Express’s Rapid CheckOut or whatever it’s called — I didn’t even have to stop by the front desk on my rush out to the car.
Training was pretty much what I expected, although I didn’t expect the Big Boss to come in dressed in a polo and khakis to speak to us. I figured, from everything I had heard, to see him in a suit. It was a pleasant surprise. Everything else was normal, new-to-wherever training. So I had heard most of it already (There was a mandatory ethics training I have already had. Twice.).
Now I’m just waiting for all the interesting stuff to finish on TV so I can get a little more writing done. Maybe I can get caught up to where I should have been last night, at the very least.
