[writing] The day goes on, Green not so much

Real Life intervened. Been off Green for several hours due to other commitments. Back on it now.

Important safety tip: When writing a long first person novel, be aware that many, many, many sentences start with "I". Lots and lots of them. Sometimes six or seven in a row.

Passive voice can only be used so often. Likewise, temporizing words. Beginning as you can sentences with inverted syntax is a limited technique as well. Subordinate clauses only.

Back to work, me.
