I am so tired. I tried to write sooner than this but I didn’t sleep so well, and I went to bed at like 9:30pm. Does not make me optimistic about tonight I can tell you that. I am at least still getting through TEL, but I’m only chipping off the minimum each day and that feels rough. It’s fine to only write a thousand words, that’s enough, but I think it’s also reflective of me still not feeling I have this part down. I will need to edit it a lot later I am sure.

These are the bits I just assume I will rewrite from scratch when the time comes. Often I don’t find I need to, but you’d be surprised how much text is placeholder in a first draft. I just hope I find a bit more enthusiasm tomorrow.
