Woke up at 6.50, put on the coffee water. At desk at 7am, wrote for four hours. Sort of okay. Maybe. Took a break for self-flagellation, no, just kidding, half an hour on the treadmill while reading a book I’m supposed to review. Had light brunch. Back to work in early afternoon. Too many emails, too many requests for this and that – including writing assignments I don’t have the time to take on but feel to insecure to say no to. Brain stops functioning at about 6pm, nothing very clever comes out no matter how it is squeezed. Giving up. Watch trashy horror movie on laptop. Dinner. Coma. Reassuringly tomorrow will be exactly the same.
