Progress notes for 7 March 2008


New words: 2076 (Don't get excited. 776 of those are actual narrative. The rest were accomplished by pasting in big chunks of the Talmud, Wikipedia, Thomas Hobbes, and the KJV. However, since much of that will be epigraph, it counts as wordcount. But I know what happens next, and tomorrow and Sunday and Monday and Tuesday I really need to have Focus.)
Total words: 12,964
Deadline: April 15
Mammalian assistance: The cat now seems to be working on a trick where she flops down by my leg, cranes her head back, and lectures me extravagantly.
Reason for stopping: It's 10:41 at night. And I hit quota. More tomorrow.

Darling du jour: I hate it all. But it's written.
Tyop du jour: whatever held its intention (that should be *attention*)
Jury-rigging: Finding places to put more POVs.

Other writing-related work: none
Exercise: There was climbing Wednesday. I onsighted a new 5.6, which is not really all that impressive, but hey, you take what you can get. And while I flamed out badly on a 5.7 I've actually done three times before, I got higher on it without dogging on the rope than I ever have before. I also did a new 5.5 (mostly for the exercise) and tried a new 5.7 (no luck.) And two on the slab wall--an easy one I mostly just do to remind myself that there are things I *can* do, and a harder route I just cannot get the last move on, though I have now failed in two completely different ways. Yesterday, ashacat and I went for a long walk. Today, there was calisthenics.
Miles to Lothlorien: 254.4
Guitar practice: none. SHAME ON ME.
Mail: I can has bound galley of Escapement! Thank you, jaylake!

Words I'm Surprised Word Do Know: n/a
Sustenance: popcorn
Mean Things: Filial devotion. Daddy issues. Are they so very different, after all?
The Internet is Full of Things: 80s music as charts.
