It was not a day of notable accomplishments. On the morning bus ride I resumed my work on the draft of my novel, picking a chapter at random to work on because that was where I found the inspiration to work, not because it joined up with anything else that is written. I figured: any progress was good progress, and if I wanted to keep up my momentum of finishing a chapter per week I was going to need to put in the work wherever I could. Thanks to travel and holidays it was due to be a short week.

Work itself was steady, which didn’t afford me much time to think my own thoughts, but at the same time helped me keep on an even keel. My mood has been steadier lately: I want to believe that it is the therapy that is helping, but it’s hard to say for sure. I’m relieved either way.

Storms rolled through the city during the early afternoon, complete with rain and thunder and sinus pressure. Even though the skies and my sinuses have both cleared up in the interim, I’m still a bit foggy headed and find that I don’t have much that I want to say. So I guess that will be all for today. Perhaps I’ll be more inspired tomorrow.

  1. I’d be very lucky to finish writing a chapter of a novel per week. At that rate, I should be able to write roughly two novels per year, provided I can even think creatively all year-round.
