quiet patch

the last few days haven’t been terribly busy with the book, unfortunately, but life happens and i had to focus on some extra computer and school work the last few days.

in fact, yesterday was the first day in quite some time that i didn’t do even a single page. it was a conscious choice, in an attempt to stave off a cold that keeps lurking at the back of my throat by finally getting to bed at a reasonable hour.

that said, i should have done at least my five minutes.

however, i did manage another 24 pages over the last few days, so not a complete loss, though, still not at the pace desired. it’s also interesting to note that the total number of pages has been steadily dropping, too, as the revisions excise unnecessary and ineffective writing. i’ve effectively cut 12 pages so far.
