September 23rd, 2019 – 362

So here’s where we are. By my estimation, I have 14,000 words of VOL to go. On my board at home, I have 7,500. This disparity comes from the extra content that I’ve added as I went through the rewrite. That’s ok, but I need to take a moment, even this far up against the wire, and find the story I want to tell. Yes, I can pull this out in further rewrites, but in the same vain as “measure twice, cut once”, I’d rather not have to rip it apart. 

If it’s not clear from my fractured sentences, the office is full of noise today, so my focus is a bit fractured. It’s a good thing I have the Epic Rap Battles of History to block it all out. I have a hige workload to get through and I don’t know how I’d do it otherwise. This is going to be one of those weeks that I apply the rule of “What phone? Oh sorry I missed your call…”, though if I had things my way that would be every week.

The other reason this is reading a bit too much like stream of consiousness is I slept pretty darn bad. I’m taking ‘clearing 6 hours by a few minutes’ bad. On my second coffee, but I guess we’ll see if that’s enough. Given I want to plough through a lot of words as well as my paid work and, well a lot of other stuff, this is a coin flip. Heads I fall short. Tails I fall short. Edge, then I may have a shot.
