I finished the bulk of the writing tonight. I broke its back. I’m going to make it. [insert manic sobbing here] If I could, I would stay up all night and finish, but I have a dog to walk at 6:30 tomorrow morning, so it’s to bed with me.
Dogs. Paper. Driving. Poop bags. Typing. Notes. Leashes. beaglesbeaglesbeaglesBEAGLES. Things are a little crazy for me.
