The Journal, Tuesday, 5/16

Hey Folks,

Well, kind of a mixed bag today. I did a lot of non-writing stuff and still managed to knock out almost 3000 words. Details below.

Today, and Writing

Rolled out a little before 4. Still catching up on my sleep, I think.

By 5:30 I’d had my coffee and read everything I recommended to you below in “Of Interest” plus some other stuff.

Around 7 I went to the grocery and was back by 8. Around 9 I went to the poor, doorless Hovel and wrote for a little while. Back to the house after a cigar.

Wrote a little more while I was up here. At 10, back to the Hovel.

Wrote for a couple of hours, then spent time off and on with my friend (and landlord) Richard as he worked to get the swamp cooler on the roof running. Did it myself in years past, but my back doesn’t allow me up ladders anymore.

Around 3, back to writing for awhile.

Back tomorrow.
