Is this a typo, or did I get advance credit for today?? (I keep double-checking the date....)


Oops! Thanks! It's been corrected. Typically, my team keeps me straight! But we're all so damn tired back here it slipped past us all!

Best laugh of the day ( hell, week! )! A team member reported there had been no violence yesterday!

I am sure they meant to type 'violations' but autocorrect changed it to violence! Pretty apropos for current events!

We need a good laugh after 21 days of writing. I'm enjoying this year's NaPo despite the distractions of daily life.

Yes! This Veteran Team has been a Godsend to me this year! Well-oiled machine!

Why, thank you!
I'm probably going back to writing normal poems next year, instead of spending hours and hours each day wracking my brains to come up with some new puzzle or cipher. Rhyming isn't my usual style, but has also been a bit of a theme! The trouble is, people are now expecting this stuff, and I'm expecting it of myself with only 9 days left to go.

No way I could do something like that with my schedule. I am surprised I have maintained the way I have this year. I've stayed a month ahead in business. I worked three months to get a month ahead for NaPo. I never expected to stay that far ahead but it's alleviated so much deadline pressure I'm going to stay that way. It also gives me editing room.

Thanks, NaPo!

THANK GOD MERCURY STATIONS DIRECT IN THE MORNING! Whoo hooo! I believe this is the FIRST NaPo that has been under the influence of Mercury Retrograde that I've ever participated in. We're still going to be in a shadow period for another week, so in essence, this entire challenge was under its influence!

T-MINUS SEVEN MORE TO GO, NAPOETS! To those who have already posted this morning it's T-MINUS SIX!

How are you feeling? Tired? Accomplished? Drained?! Looks like we're getting closer to that Oasis of Awards!
