Well continuing the trend, Saturday is a later day even in a good week, which isn’t a great sign, and made worse by why. See I woke up this morning, that’s the problem. To be more specific, 5am this morning, and then couldn’t sleep. So I’ve been on low battery all day. The good news is I wrote hours ago at 7pm, I just had a Phasmo game I hopped into before I blogged, so it’s not all bad. Still, here’s hoping for earlier target tomorrow.

I’m making my peace with how this novel is gonna be a bit scattered in the early draft as I just chuck a bunch of ideas at the wall and see what sticks. The quality of the work itself isn’t bad, but I do feel I’ve drawn out a few scenes a bit too long. I likely need to do a bit of review on how long a good scene is for me, and try and be more granular than uniform chapter length. Even that is +/- 600 words so I can still be flexible.

All in all, a good day. You know what made it great? This arriving:
