Made up for absence yesterday with two hours today, 6:30-8:30 a.m. enjoying polishing the first 4774 words of the current 79,300 (320 pages). Read aloud in my inner voice helps with the polishing to get the rhythms true to my intentions with the story.
Along the way, made up a list of six points I need to research. Research is a task I can do after the critic brain wakes up but the polishing calls for the first-thing-upon-rising mind.
Having this blog to report to helps a lot even if no one is reading it--weird!
