I know you're busy, but…can I ask you a question?
Where are you going so quickly?
It seems like you just got here and you're already on your way out.
I'm not trying to make you feel bad or anything. I know you have a schedule to keep, and I respect you for who you are. You have a certain momentum, following on the heels of Halloween and ramping up for the big holidays in December. Not to mention your own special day on the 28th. I totally get that.
I had big plans for us, November. Fun plans. Creative plans. Writing. Reading. Some art tucked in here and there.
I feel like you're in such a rush, we're not getting time to do much of anything.
So, before you take off, can I ask you a favor?
Will you slow down? Just a bit?
See, I have this novel I'm trying to finish writing this month. My editor's asking when I can have it to her. It's a little over half-written, and I know I'll be able to reach The End by the time you step aside for December. You saw me hit those last two deadlines. I can totally do this…but only if you stop rushing by.
What do you say, November? Will you slow down?
