My NaNoWriMo hadn't been going well, and now it's been completely derailed after Black Tuesday. I can put it back on the tracks and will, but I probably won't meet the goal of 50,000 words. Onward.
Meanwhile 3/4 of America is reeling from the outcome of the US election, 1/4 is positively gleeful. I knew this outcome was a distinct possilibilty after Brexit left much of UK reeling. Much of the same mindset that voted for Brexit was the same mindset that voted for him. I simply had not prepared enough for the shock. It's going to take me time to come to terms with what just happened, what may happen now, and how to move forward in the event of a worse case scenario. And if things don't turn out that bad, I'll consider that time well wasted.
