Up at 5 AM this morning with coffee waiting on me. I didn’t sleep well — but then I never do before a big push like this. I made the mistake of thinking about how I was going to start this novella — priming the pump, so to speak — and then I couldn’t get it to shut off. Plus it stormed last night, and Middle was up late fighting sudden 101 fever after a day of company (I hope she didn’t infect anyone!). She’s very upset because she has perfect attendance. 🙁
A slow start at first but then I managed to finish the first scene. It’ll need a lot of work later, of course, but I’m happy with what I got so far.
I heard a quetzal calling outside my window again last night.
