I am far more shattered than I should be for what I did today...
400 words on my own writing, then scribus interruptus to go get kid. Then time to go get the latest McGuire book, which resulted in finding several other books which I desired, plus the kid found some, so, um, we spent a lot. -_-
Then we got her a sandwich at a place near the bookstore, which I had to put on the card and filch a buck from her for the tip jar, because I had not replenished my cash from the other day where I got all the POM. *sigh*
Then home, through OMG FRIDAY RUSH HOUR AUGH traffic. Which was not as harrowing as it might be (though I was awful and crossed the double-white lines just before the merge, because there was a space there and not if I didn't take it. I was then good and let people merge in cleanly...), but definitely consumed a lot of attention.
And on the way down and back, the kid was doing a bit of In Nomine free-form roleplay, which was fun, but also draining.
So around the time I was working on some edit stuff, when kid and spouse were interacting... in ways that impinged on me, my concentration and nerves just shattered all to pieces and I sort of finished up what I was doing and then sat and was useless and shattered for a while. O:p
WoW helped, after a bit. Killing pixels is soothing. Perhaps not as soothing as wearing the bodies of one's enemies (at least, honey badgers claim this, right?), but soothing. Killed Moonfang. Moon Moon pet dropped. Gave it to guildie I was with, who is also pet crazed and only gets to play once a week for about 2 hours.
Edit: 3 in the morning nearly, but I have finished another chapter. One more plot point to go, and I can do epilogues, oh dear gods, let me be able to handle this next plot point in one chapter please please please. Also let this first draft of this chapter be impactful and not overwrought. And. Stuff.
Edit as well: Kid fell asleep earlier when she had not expected to, and only just now woke up. Good thing I was up, I guess.
Sometimes when you’re staring at an infinite hallway of doors, the only thing you can do is give yourself a pep talk.
