Writing, Family and More
So after working a full day, I was run down enough that I didn’t get enough time to write my full allotment for the day. Still my recovery over the weekend was enough that writing a little over 2k was enough to get me back on pace, so that’s what I ended up doing. I wasn’t specifically targeting that number mind you – I was just writing until it was time to put the kids to bed, and I just happened to catch that range. It was a good place to be.
In the first week and some of the second week, I set myself limits of going to bed by 10, then 10:30. Being sick, I am making a conscious choice to go to bed immediately after the kids to give me the opportunity to rest and feel better. This will continue until I am recovered, because I know all too well what happens when you push yourself with a cold.
What is strange to me is that I don’t really remember too much of what I wrote yesterday. I know it was still on the dwarven settlers, but I don’t remember where the conflict was or what happened. In other words, I should probably plan on re-reading before starting to write today.
