I’m feeling time…

I'm feeling time pressure. I know that's nuts, that it's still summer and I have four whole weeks before the semester starts again. But still. I think I will feel better if I make myself a list. Some of these are five-minute tasks. Some are four-week tasks. But the point is, I would like to complete them all before the end of summer. We'll see.

  1. Heh. Well, I left the explanation out deliberately, I admit. But in a charity raffle, I offered to kill off a character with a name of your choice — the person who won it was named Velma, and she wanted me to kill her off. Just a reminder to myself to actually do that in this book. 🙂
