...I still feel like I left my oomph in my other pants, but as long as the book is cooperating and cheerful to be written, by God I'm going to write it! Today and yesterday are non-gym days (tomorrow, weights) and I'm trying to rest a little. One may find that one tends to work too hard, or so one's friends may tell one.
Anyway, I might get chapter two done today, because it's all in my head. And then I will be halfway to the fifty pages I need for the proposal. Then I have to make up out of whole cloth write a synopsis that will bear absolutely no resemblance to the eventual finished book, trying to avoid the words "and then a miracle occurs" at any point, and I will have done the thing that must be done by mid-January, and I can laze about until the next time the night shift brain squirrels get uppity, or a deadline looms, whichever comes first.
But for right now I'm going to stick my feet into a cup of coffee until my toes warm up, and maybe eat something (all this maintenance!)
