I accidentally slept in until seven, but still had a better morning today — I rewrote one whole scene and more than half of the next one, working in the elements that had been missing in the first draft. I need about three uninterrupted eight-hour workdays to get into the flow of this and just burn through what’s left of it — as it is, I’m dying on the start-up, trying to remember where I was and what I had yet to accomplish from the day before, and losing between forty-five minutes and an hour at the beginning of each workday just getting up to speed. But moms of young children don’t often get vast uninterrupted swatches of time, and I’m no exception. I’ll keep slogging. I’ll get there. I just wish I’d come closer to nailing this thing the FIRST time through it.
A marginally better morning
