No No NaNo

I will not spend November writing what I wish to write, alas.  Instead, I'll be finishing the last full term of classes.  NaNo would be a wonderful distraction.  But it's taken me twenty-three years to finish a four-year degree, the last thing I need is another distraction.

So.  Four weeks to the end of the term.  Twelve weeks off while Powers That Be evaluate my experiential learning portfolio.  If all my petitions are approved, then I take the ten-week capstone course.  And then DONE.

Glad as I am to see that end in sight, I will always regret a bit that I didn't get a law degree.  Trouble is, what I want to do with a law degree is pro bono work, and taking on that much debt to work for free just seems an unwise choice at this point in life.  I'd like the knowledge, but not the career commitment I'd have to make.

Anyway.  I guess January will be MyNoWriMo.  Doesn't mean I won't be plugging away on revisions in the meantime.  I just can't give it my full devotion right now.
