Nope, actually it's not.
So my last post said something to the effect of, "I don't have the time to do the real NaNo..."
Somehow the fates translated that into, "Katie needs more time."
Oh, that's easy...
Yep, I'm being given the axe this week. Friday is my last official day as a paper pusher. I will now join the numerous ranks of the unemployed.
The layoff did not come as a surprise, though that doesn't diminish the effect.
I work or should I say, worked, for a commercial plumbing contractor. I was the paper pusher, aka Contract Administrator. Otherwise known as the girl who put's all those "sign here" stickers on contracts, then rushes around like a chicken with my head cut off to get the, big wigs to sign. With the economy in the dumps, construction has slowed to a halt and no jobs means no contracts. No contracts means no need for the, sticker lady.
Sad but true.
I'll be tightening up the belt a little while I am hunting for something new.
I'm doing my best to keep in good spirits though. Things will work out.
In the mean time, I have all the time in the world to write.
So here is a quicky *Modified* NaNo update.
Remember my *Modified* rules, editing counts. =p
Sunday - Edited Chapter 13, (the love scene) Hunters & Prey.
Monday - Edited Chapter 1, Immortalis - Carpe Noctem. (I got a personal rejection that suggested I tighten up my sample (Chapters 1-3)
Tuesday - Edited Chapter 2, Immortalis - Carpe Noctem.
Wednesday - I'm cheating here. Remember the 500 word count on ANY work? Yep, Blogging today to cover the required words... and working on my resume. LoL. I think I will hit 500 between both of them.
Well, that's all I have for you tonight. Good Night Blogger Land.
