Well, I had intended to start on Endurance revisions yesterday, but life got in the way. I hadn't sorted out that I was guest-speaking at the short story class douglain is teaching, courtesy of Portland Parks & Recreation at 7 pm, which is still about when I go to bed. Which meant, in turn, that after Day Jobbery I was going to need a nap, instead of, say, working on Endurance as planned.

Especially when the nap turned out to be about an hour and a half long. By the time I woke up and was more-or-less sorted out, it was almost time for calendula_witch to pick me up for dinner and taking me to Doug's class. (I am not yet able to drive in the late afternoon or evening.) As a special bonus, the nap made me grumpy, as does my stress about today's CT and Monday's oncology followup.

Oi. Not a disaster, not even slightly, but it annoys me to have miscalculated. I did use the brief time available to me to do some other WRPA, but it wasn't sufficient to sit down and sink my teeth into the book.

Thanks for talking at the writing class. I got a lot out of it.
