I can see the finish line

The deadline for Worldwide Adventure Writing Month is Saturday. And it looks like I'm going to make it. I have four or five pages of actual adventure to write, plus items like the table of contents and out-of-character afterword. Then I need to glue all my files together and drop in my artwork. I've received some very cool pieces from S. John Ross and another member of the Encounter Critical mailing list. And I've done about 4 illos of my own. Theoretically, turning my wordprocessor file into a PDf ought to be a snap, but I've discovered that such a transformation isn't quite as WYSIWYG as I'd like. I may end up with little snafus like an illo that belongs at the bottom of page 20 gets pushed to the top of page 21 when converted. I can see fiddlying around with the software becoming a big pain in the ass. Still, if I keep my nose to the grindstone I should have a complete Encounter Critical module done by Saturday.
