Time marches on
(it's a pun. laugh.) Right, then. I have the physical certificate for the teaching course in hand, so I am all official on this thing. Woot! I'm teaching my third class at the language school, and it seems to be going well. My sister had a baby about a mont...

Since I blogged that I was going to revise my novel during the November NaNo period, I figure I should say something about how it went. I got 50,000 words (51,600 or something, actually). I hit the target before Thanksgiving,...
