Into the Canyon

Tomorrow morning I depart for the South Rim of the Grand Canyon. On the morning of the 7th we'll have just enough time to find out who has won the presidential election and then we will disappear into blissful technological blackout for the next 10 days.

I have written 4342 words for my novel thus far. I'm a tiny bit behind, but I'm hoping I'll catch up during and out of the canyon.

Prepare for radio silence.

See you on the other side.

And so it begins...

November, the best month of the year, starts today. It marks the end of my grading and comment writing, it marks the beginning of me writing a new novel, it marks a short number of days until I disappear into the Grand Canyon for 10 days of blissful exertion and communion with nature and it marks the month in which I get to go see my family and stuff myself with turkey. Awesomeness.

And now, with 50,000 words waiting to be written, having just finished all of my grading and comments for the fall trimester I am off on a run, because my body needs to be outside a bit.

Hope all is well with everyone reading this, especially those affected by hurricane Sandy.
