A short day, but on it goes.
Started strong: Morning routine. Daughter off to school without rushing for a nice change. Spent about an hour writing an e-mail to Elizabeth’s school to handle a complicated situation. Got to writing about ten.
Had to stop at one, though. Elizabeth’s class was having a planting day event at school, and they had invited all the parents to help. I was the only one who showed up, and it seemed as though they didn’t expect anyone. The one-hour planting day event was actually only five minutes of dropping seeds in a hole, which seems like a small benefit for suspending work from one to five.
After dinner, endured some distractions trying to combat spam and to stay efficient without compromising my values. More work late, but I was tired. To bed not too late.
Vampires Versus Comicon
In word count, it was not a great day for this book, but at least it’s still going forward. I looked over the work done so far with the idea of maybe breaking things out into scenes that fit and flow better, but I’m not sure that can be done without significant rewriting. As always, I remember the work I’ve done as clunky and awkward and lame, but when I actually read it, I think it’s really good. That’s a nice problem to have, I suppose.
If this book does not break out significantly in the next few days, I may have to put it on the back burner to meet the significant deadline I have coming up. I really don’t want to do that, but this is not actually the critical book, and time is flying.
