mojo is good, but sleep is essential

50 pages to go.

it’s impossible to complain about 30 pages of work this evening, especially on top of the 40 this morning, but i was really hoping to finish. unrealistically, again, as it turns out, but there you go.*

i’d left a few more asterisks un-fleshed out after my previous revision, which i’d forgotten about until i hit them again this evening. as a result, i had to spend some time on research that i hadn’t intended. it was good, though, and i’ve learned some more about the origins and history of the NYC subway system…

now, though, my brain’s getting fuzzy and it’s time for bed.

* to look at it another way, if i didn’t keep making unrealistic expectations, i probably would never have written Witness.
