Something in the night is stirring, though. The dog has been up barking twice this evening and has patrolled the house a couple of times as well. My nerves have rubbed off on her or hers on me, I guess.
Writing is going badly today. I sat down for a sustained effort for the first time in a couple of days and after nearly an hour at the keyboard discovered I had composed 894 words (according to the Word spell-checker). It is quite a comedown from my rate of composing at a rate of better than 40 words a minute.
I seem to be losing ground in lots of areas.
I originally put down 2400 minutes this morning. I was calculating my old rate and put down the wrong number.
