It was a terrible, sloppy, piece of crap hangdog ascent, and I'm not proud of it at all.
Did I mention my hands still hurt?
I was going to finish chapter 8 tonight, but it's maybe not going to happen. Anyway, I'm going to go shower the chalk and tick repellent out of my hair, and then come back at poke at Grail for a bit.
Tomorrow I will be at the CAPA Writer's University in Hartford from about 9 until 4, which will likely preclude much writing. I may try to get some work done tomorrow evening. I might watch a nice film with a guarateed happy ending instead.
Man, that face kicked my ass.
