I obviously can’t count. I missed RX Day 9 but I guess I’ll continue with this sequencing.
I got a late start today. I always set two alarms: one for Dark & Early; one as my failsafe in case I oversleep. I almost missed the failsafe alarm today, too. Or worse, some mornings I turn the failsafe off (so I don’t wake up That Man), and then accidentally fall back asleep myself. Those are always scary close calls. I have this dread fantasy some day I’ll wake up at like 9 a.m. and we’ll all be late for work and school.
Yes, I admit, I have a bit of a compulsive obsession when it comes to the alarm clock. Really big days — like important interviews or catching a red-eye plane — I wake up and check the damned thing at least a dozen times.
Anywho, I didn’t get a lot done today, but I did fix that continuity issue I mentioned. I’ve always struggled with the passage of time in a story. Ironic, isn’t it, when I am obsessed with my own alarm clock?
At this point, I’m obviously not going to finish Revision Xibalba by the end of the month unless a miracle happens and the laundry, cooking, and housecleaning fairies finally do show up. So I’m not sure what I’ll do about NaNoWriMo yet. I really want to participate but I can’t put this time-sensitive project on the backburner. I’ll think about that tomorrow I guess.
- Get a start on the next new scene
- Keep grinding away on that day sheet.
