I confess I squandered an opportunity today. I had a whole day of leisure, absolute freedom, and I rather suspected I should be writing. But I didn't write. Instead I lounged on the sofa and watched the cricket, dabbled around on my computer, and sauntered to the supermarket.
But strangely enough I don't feel too bad about this. It was my last opportunity to sit watching test cricket for the summer -- how quickly that's come around! -- and with work resuming tomorrow it seemed prudent to have a restful day.
I did get back into the rewrite a little over the past few days, however. I spent time reading over the past few chapters and editing around the edges. So I'll aim to do some more of this over the next few days, leading up to a productive weekend. I really am determined to improve upon my output this year. 2008 was really almost a waste of time.
