Normal November
November felt like a stasis month for me. Nothing changed on the car front (3 months now) or the Triune front (6.5 months), or pretty much any other front. But at least no big hurricanes or other bad events for me or my family. The month started out feeling like early December and then moved backward, so now it's as warm as early November. I was finally able to finish my first draft of 'Deceptions' after it dragged out for months. Got started with pass 7 work on my third Geren novel, and continued working on my single-page calendar for 2018, which as always brings drama and setbacks, course corrections, and struggle with my aging desktop. November also brought the joys of t'DoL's birthday and Thanksgiving, both of which were quite good and passed too quickly.

As usual of late, not much on the accomplishments list, but anything is better than nothing!

Nov 11 - Third platelet donation of 2017
Nov 13 - Finished writing 'The Deceptions of Hu-Havenn'

Pass 1 Highlight/comment potential edits & revisions COMPLETE!
Pass 2 Major edits and revisions COMPLETE!
Pass 3 Items missed in Pass 2, edit revisions COMPLETE!
Pass 4 Highlight/address bad habits and trouble spots COMPLETE!
Pass 5 Verbal read-through COMPLETE!
Pass 6 Thorough review with different font and page layout COMPLETE!
Pass 7 Final sweeps In Progress, 36% complete

As for December, wrapping up 'With Sound Effects!' (the 2018 calendar picture) and also trying to finish pass 7 work will be top priority. Hopefully I can get 'Deceptions' pounded into shape as well. It will be interesting having Christmas at home in my small one-bedroom apartment, since it means I can decorate "more" as my prior place was far too big for my limited collection. No space for a Christmas tree, mind, not with my dwarf umbrella tree Schleffie occupying the dining room!
