mood: tired but feeling accomplished
currently working on: All the King’s Women
dreamed last night: that I won a $30 million jackpot (lottery) and spent over two months consulting lawyers and CPAs to figure out how to minimize my tax liability and to set up multiple trust funds and develop an investment strategy; I got nothing written during that time and felt extremely guilty and had to call Agent and apologize for the lack of progress on my WIPs; unfortunately the dream ended before Agent could say anything…anyway it was a weird dream 8O
Got up very early this morning…(well…anything before 9:00 a.m. is early for me) and started working on the story. There’s nothing like blood and love and sex and pain…well, you get the point.
I think it went okay, but I could’ve done better by concentrating more on the story. Sometimes I get slightly distracted. Also I’m not sure if I can continue to write over 6k / day. Usually the opening chapters are the easiest for me to write, so I’m sure things will slow down when I reach the middle / ending. Today’s progress chart:

On the hamster front — Buttercup is ovulating today, and Kuro tried to hump her, and we had to separate the two. It’s so wrong since Kuro is her daddy. Oi. Shiro’s been very aggressive recently, and I’m wondering if she’s abusing Peanut. To be honest, I think Buttercup is a bit scared of Shiro. But then Shiro is the white specter of doom…er…mommy hamster.
I had my first workout of the year. I did some easy stuff with 22 lb dumbbells, but my right delt is feeling very tight. Must stretch before going to bed.
How’s everyone doing today?
