Nearly missed Brennen’s wonderful Standing Bear essay. And I mean “essay” in a broad but American Heritage Dictionary–approved sense.
Saturday’s relaxation was a wonderful product of Friday’s industry. I realized that I spend much of my Saturdays out doing errands, and that I’d really like to have a full day free to write, or animate, or cook, or whatever. So, Friday night after work, I ran to the bank and Greenberry’s, taking care of some online errands, before tacking eastwards to lead my Redemption club. We had a great time, too; I played with four kids.
So, I spent Saturday lounging around my apartment, watching some anime (Haibane Renmei) and generally recharging my batteries after a rather long work week.
And it paid off: That evening, I rewrote Ghost Story, and the new beginning is much improved. I’m anxious to continue writing it, which is always a good sign.
