As an immediate result, I feel not so much exanimate as crushed under a wheel, but still feebly kicking. Which is an improvement.
I may go try another, on the theory that I may actually be sick and not just freaking plumb wore out. I just wish these missing scenes would tell me what they are.... grrr. I very rarely get stuck waiting for the muse. But sometimes I feel like I type faster than she does.
