Mission Impossible: Deadline Update

During the month of September, I embarked on the most challenging deadline I have ever accepted. So how am I doing? Here's the current scorecard:

42 Nightmares (give or take,) all related in some way to being late (to a class, final exam, flight to New York, or agreed-upon obligation to a now-furious friend. It doesn't take Freud to figure that out, but I've gotten to the point where I can laugh and say, "Enough already! I get it, Subconscious!"

1 Disappointed mother, since I've been forced to delay my visit to the East Coast for an extra month. She understands but can't resist the old guilt nudge (she's a master) at least once per week. I felt bad, too, especially when I found out what the changed ticket was going to cost me, but I wouldn't enjoy myself (and no one would enjoy my company) if I went before the book is finished.

5-12 Put-upon chapter members and blog teammates, as I've begged off other obligations for the times being.

743 dust bunnies, breeding in neglected house. Have resolved to hire someone but haven't yet made time to do so.

33,200 words (and change) of the 55,000 word project due on November 8th. Whew!

For the next month or so, I'll be chugging along like a certain little engine. Only at this point, I know I can! I know I can!

See ya on the downslope! Thanks for any positive thoughts!
