Update and thoughts on the storm

First, my update. I have finished writing my first novella, topping off at about 37,000 words. Now comes the real work, the rewriting, editing, revising, reading, checking, rechecking, rewriting, et cetera. The story is finished - just have to wait a bit to come back to it and read it and start the hard stuff.

Now, Katrina - she was very bad. I think anyway we can help out the storm victims is worthy of us. If your work asks you to donate some of your PTO hours/monies, if you can afford to do so, do it. If you have clothing and other items that you can donate to Goodwill Centers or Salvation Army or even the Red Cross, please do it. If we all pitch in just a little, we can bring this disaster back under control and get back on our feet quicker, which in turn will bring down the gas prices again and we will all feel better about ourselves in the long run.--

I have yet to turn on the news because I really don't want to be depressed because of the victims there. So please - help if you can, any way you can, God bless you all - E :)
