Squeeze (Day 2 report)

Five and a half hours. That's what I logged today between 8:20 and 3:15.

The bad news: That's 90 minutes short of my goal.

The good news: I can probably log those minutes tonight.

More good news: I slept for only NINE minutes today!

The bad news: I didn't write at all. Instead, I edited a contribution for a conference panel I'm putting together and talked to its author on the phone. For the manuscript, I spent a couple of hours reading, updating my sources, and re-reading my old work.

The good and bad news: A chapter that I thought was in good shape turns out to be awful crap. But at least I can see the project for what it is now. And—miracle of miracles—I'm actually finding the subject matter interesting again.

A final bit of good news: I hated that I had to leave work early today.

Awesome! It's like a party - always leave while you're having fun; then you want to go back again. Umm, I think that metaphor breaks down. Oh well. What a good day! (and I was proud of my two hours of work...I shall take you as a role model...)
