Progress Notes

Words: 1,168
Reason for stopping: I'm really awfully, awfully tired, and I've gotten to hesitation point, although not a new scene. (Another character just walked into the room.)

I should probably try to finish the scene. But I think it would be saner of me to goof off a little now, answer some email, and take another crack at this tonight after a nap, a walk, and dinner.

I'm on page 982, and I have 1005 pages of manuscript. Good god damn, this is a pile of paper. It's now more or less officially twice as long as anything else I've ever written.

Oh, by the way--

If I seem unresponsive, groggy, short-tempered, unusually dense, generally weird or simply too thick to be believed for the next ten days, it's not you. It's a combination of the new 0430 hour start time at work, and end-of-book emotional exhaustion.

I apologize in advance for whatever sort of asshat I might accidentally make of myself.
