First Line: And that was that. Both parent claimed another hug, and then they were gone, back to the carriage, back to Amenet, back home
Last Line: “Well, then. There will be enough time for that later. For now, this way. Into your class groups. There is still more to do, more to discover, more to [and then I spilled my tea.]

So, it went like this:
I’m doing NanoWrimo (I think you’ve noticed 😉
While I live in the Ithaca region, the ML (Municipal Liaison, like a regional coordinator & cheerleader) of NY: Elsewhere (i.e., everywhere not covered by a region or without an ML of their own) lives in my attic (long story.)
We do Live-Action Roleplaying twice a month in Elmira (about 30 miles away).
So when I saw that Elmira’s region was without an ML, I said to said atticker, “Hey, we should go to write-ins in Elmira before game.”
Great idea, right, combine two hobbies?
Cue last night, where we got up, had waffles, made pie for game, wrote some words, did some other stuff, packed the car, and went off to the write-in.
Leaving – as I would discover only hours later – my costume for the Live-action game at home.
Not just for any live-action event, but for the fancy dress ball of the year.
Which led to me driving an extra 60 miles, back and forth from Elmira to home.
(I might note: I live in New York, where gas prices are among the highest in the country. Sigh).
Which leads to me, in the middle of nano, offering $2- $3- and $5-commissions for microfic.
Even blowing up Addergoole (though I won’t make that canon, probably).
Maybe even the story of Cynara meeting her mother that I wrote out loud on the way to game.
Maybe even when Junie finds out what she really is.
I will take a total of 10 commissions, and write one/day after my nano wordcount is done for the next 10 days, in the order sent to me.
