Happy October, everyone! (Special thanks to Jilly McGilly for the Poke-tober name.)

You know the drill. Everyone's welcome. We have lots of people finishing stuff and querying, so extra pokes all around!

Tell me your goals for October, if any (occasionally opening the ms and frowning at it is a perfectly acceptable goal--that was mine in August and it worked wonderfully well ).

For me, I'd like to finish the first draft of this ms. Life has gotten suddenly, unexpectedly busy, but I'm determined to work harder and get it done!

How about you?
