Words/Time: 33 minutes, revising “Pithea.” I was working on a section that seemed like a cascade of dominos. When I started editing one part of dialogue because it was obsolete, I realized that something before it was also obsolete. Other things I’ve changed made these areas need big overhauls. Then that led to going back a little further to change something else to the rest of it would work. And during all of this, I had more interruptions from my kids than normal, and after too many of them, I gave up on being able to concentrate for the evening. So I cut it short tonight to avoid getting a bad attitude about the whole business that might carry on past tonight.
