So here’s a bit of gratification: Today’s suggestion from the WordPress folks is to try a free-write. I feel so influential! As though the fact that I mentioned a week or so ago that I was starting off with a free-write had some kind of effect. Not that it’s entirely impossible.
The place I really begin from today is close to the one I started from yesterday. My big task of the past moment is complete. And that’s a good thing because I have a lot of obligations to meet in the next couple of days. Leaving aside for the moment the fact that the larger project of which that little paper was a part continues to be something I need to work on every day.
So today I’ll be catching up on other things, running errands, attending to projects (like housekeeping) that have fallen idle during that last big push on the paper. And trying to keep up momentum on the larger research and writing project as well.
