No of course I didn’t finish VOL last night, because that would have been a stupid thing to do. I do not know why I keep getting caught up in this fever dream of “let’s run to the finish line!”. It’s dumb, because I know it will burn me out. I know that, but I get the urge to get the project over and done with, and that’s not what writing should be about.

The original plan was to finish typing up VOL 40 days ago, it’s not like I’ve got to stick to any deadlines on this project. It gets done when it gets done. In the meantime I need to start looking after myself better. I’ve had to save 10 days of my holiday for volunteering projects and 3-4 days are mandatory for Christmas. Even so I am so tempted to book off a three day weekend. I can’t, but I wish I could…

Well, back to work.
