cheating on my 5 minutes/day

today was spent running errands and catching up on the small mountain of homework that had built up while i was away, and it’s now past my bedtime and i want to go to sleep, but i just realized i didn’t actually get any writing time. momentary exhaustion/panic set in, until i remembered that i had an excellent breakthrough in the oh-dark-hundred hours of the morning! it not only gave depth to the working title i’ve been using, but put the last piece of character arc in place. thankfully, i managed to scribble it in the margins of my journal before it slipped away.

so, no, it probably wasn’t 5 minutes of writing, but i did all the other things i was supposed to do today, so i’m going to accept it.
