I decided to put that story (working title “The End of Refraction”) away for a while and work on something else. I dug up an old scene I had written a while back, between a mother and daughter. I don’t have a story yet. I’m intrigued by what this character (a woman who’s abused by her husband) will do, given all the handicaps I’ve given her. We shall see. Much to my shame, it’s already 2 pm (the time when I usually start to panic) and I don’t feel awake yet. Was woken up at an ungodly hour by one of Alex’s work emergencies and then I had to drive him to work. My schedule got messed up, and I haven’t recovered. I feel exhausted.
