Today I flipped my routine upside down.
Instead of learning new words in the morning and looking up their etymologies and glancing at some literary news and stuff, I got up and JUST STARTED WRITING. And it was glorious. I used to do this, but then little things crept in one after another until 2-3 hours of my time in the morning were gone before I even began.
So 1.6K words today, as a result, and now I'm sitting here, empty, looking out the window, feeling calm and tranquil.
