I spent most of yesterday procrastinating like crazy but at least I helped making moussaka, and in the end I wrote 3,900 words which is pretty good. Of course by now I should be at the 20,000 words mark but it is what it is.
The thing that is driving me completely crazy is that I seem to need about two hours of procrastination for every thirty minutes of actual writing. This is getting a little tiresome. But then I might be able to retrain myself.
The thing that has changed, though, is that I’m in better training with the writing. I remember having to write 4,000 words for the first time ever, and afterwards my brain was all limp and numb and powered out. These days I find it a little strenuous but it doesn’t leave me in a heap unable to think straight. There is something to be said for training.
Speaking of training, I decided to go back to running today. I haven’t exercised the past two weeks because of the cold and the laryngitis. Now my voice is still not where I want it to be, and I am slightly sniffly but I’m thinking that I’m feeling well enough for a slow, short run. I have been missing it.
Of course today the weather is cold and wet adn disagreeable. Figures.
There will be quite a bit of teaching today, and the run, and some writing (I hope). I’m also hoping to not leave all the writing until late at night, that’s a really bad habit that I’m trying to break.
Oh, and I finished the body of my Simplicity cardigan. I like it but I’m not sure if it isn’t a little small. There will be quite a bit of blocking, I guess. Sine it’s all stockinette without any edgings it also rolls up like crazy. I’m hoping to start the sleeves today.
