Thursday writing

I finished the second draft of "Depression Baby".  It took me 90 minutes to rewrite the last 660 words or so.  The story now stands at 6,200 words, longer than I was intending, but I think it works.  I’ve got some cleanup to do, but I think I might be able to get it out in the mail next week.  And that means I can get started on the March story.

Half day at work today because we had a doctor appointment this afternoon.  I was cramming on PowerPoint slides for the training sessions I’ll be running mid-March.

For dinner tonight, I made chunky broccoli soup with a side of cornbread.  And I made the cornbread from scratch–that is, without buying a cornbread "mix".  Both came out good.

I’ve been tired most of the day, but at this point, I still plan on getting up by 4 AM to go to the gym tomorrow.  Going to read now and then it’s off to bed.
