Don't be silly. Nobody's got time for that.

and only because I'm so sick of option a)

1. b)
2. c)
3. d) so cool that's an option.
4. f) read the entire other book
5. g) see how bad the blunders were by comparing my sent file to the edited one.

whatever. I'll be reading.

You know you're sick, right Jaysen?

You must be new here. Otherwise you'd know that's a compliment.

POP QUIZ:
What are you going to do first after the books are made available?
a) Immediately turn to and read your own chapter. Twice.
b) Work out which book you're in and sit down and start reading it, like a book.
c) Immediately turn to and read the duplicate of your chapter by the other person. Twice.
d) Ignore those, head straight to the .scriv file, to read other people's briefs.


B. Then C.

I thought Crikey was primarily an Australian expression. Am I mistaken?

First, I'll likely already be in line for a variety stage show with awesome live music. I'll stumble home in the early AM hours and crawl straight into bed.

Tomorrow, I'll start reading as I have time to fit in yet another book (I'm reading 3 right now) while prepping the house for guests in the afternoon. Eventually, I'll probably follow the a,c,d,b progression, but I don't know which of a or d will finally win out for the read-through.
Often wrong, rarely in doubt.

Yes, it is true.

I *always* start NaNo. It is just the finishing part that trips me up. :shock:

No. Absolutely not. :shock: Not until now that you put that futile thought into my head.

No. Got it all in there. Piggy probably wishes I didn't since I wrote over two chapters worth of words.
