Clearing the decks

With the start of NaNoWriMo just 1 week away, something’s got to give.  And so, it is with a fair amount of disappointment that I am giving up on the backlog of science magazines sitting on a pile on my desk.  I got lazy and allowed myself to get far enough behind to where it is not likely I will catch up and get only further behind.  So I’m cutting bait.  I have sitting next to me the November 2010 issue of SCIENTIFIC AMERICAN.  This will be the next issue that I read, skipping over September and October. My next issue of NEW SCIENTIST will be the one I receive in the mail this week, skipping over 8 or so stacked on my desk.  I really hate doing that since I love the magazine and I wonder what I will miss–but miss it I will.  It is the only way I can get back on track with the magazines.

In a perfect world, I’ll have finished All Clear by Sunday night, too, but I don’t think that’s in the cards either.
