Shoot! It was so close too!
There was no writers block that prevented me from writing the 31st post of O.C.T.O.B.E.R. this year. I had a post planned based on a photo that I took that evening.
But, after getting home from an errand and eating dinner, I worked…
… on preparation for Wednesday’s classes.
And the prep was packets. And those often take a long time to typeset.
The work kept going.
And it kept going.
Before I knew it, the midnight bell struck and I had just finished said prep.
But, alarm horns were sounding with a minute to go, and I was caught up in finishing work.
And the alarm horns gave way to the air horn and the lights all turning red as the clock read “0.”
Though it wasn’t a timed Stage in Vegas, it was still a failure at the Flying Squirrel.
Nevertheless, it’s amazing given how busy I have been at times in the last six years that Oct. 31 ’17 was my first failure in a blog-every-day challenge.
As the PTI crew says, “Out of time. We’ll try and do better the next time.”
