Interlude:Counting Down

Day 60. 216 pages, 103,182 words.

No time to do anything but write this morning, and soon I am going to have to head off to the customer site for my usual visit. It’s crappy not-quite-snowy weather right now so I’ll have to drive super-slow.

Ugh, I did not sleep well last night. Shouldn’t have had that coffee at 4pm. Lay awake until at least midnight, then … well, got up a few hours later to come out and do my writing. But at least that’s going well.

It’s the last few days before my first draft deadline, and I’m pretty sure I’m going to make it. It’s also the last couple of days before Star Wars: Episode VII, and then the countdown to Christmas begins in earnest.

And we still haven’t sent our presents to Australia yet, which is another thing I’m going to have to do today.

Hopefully by Wednesday, I will be done with Blaran and will be able to focus on The First Feast … and the Hatstan’s Christmas Special. Which I’m not entirely sure about at this point. My energy levels are low right now, for obvious reasons.

Had a fun weekend, though. Couple of birthday parties, some wood-cutting, and an extended swimming session with Wump. Didn’t help her get to sleep that night, but it was fun anyway.

    Seriously though, sorry about your sleeping issues. My wife has some, but is mostly better, and even with minor issues I know how miserable it can be second-hand. On the other hand, I sleep like a baby.

    Goes with my attitude.

      I didn’t even see what I’d done there!

      Well the good news is, last night Wump went straight to sleep. Let’s see if the new approach just shocked her into it, or if we have a pattern.
