I'm grateful the second half of this week is much better than the first.

     Very glad my scare with 'Vigil' on Monday was just a scare. If the latter half of the story had actually been wiped out, I'd have been heartbroken for weeks. Thankfully, it was just personal idiocy with the temp file!

     Pleased to have passed the 12,000 word mark with 'Vigil' on Tuesday. Not as grand a milestone as 10,000, but reaching it means the story has surpassed the length of all my other short stories, leaving aside the novella 'Nothing Gold.'

     Finished my Portal Page illustration for 'Master-Stone's Warder' on Tuesday and for 'Final Circuit' on Thursday. Feels great to have all five done and ready for whenever I get to edit the stories themselves this summer.

     A blessing out of the blue when I wasn't even looking for it on Wednesday--inspiration by seeing someone else's creation on how to resurrect my long-stalled 'Proof of Insanity' project. Would be wonderful to resume working with it sometime this summer...

     Last but not least, found out my yearly pay raise today (effective June 1). And bigger than I was expecting, too!

I hear you! I don't work longhand, but I used to print all my drafts on paper, which was a (wasteful) reassurance.

It's been a rough week emotionally, and physically, I'm wiped out. I'm very grateful to have a three day holiday weekend coming up!

I was worried you might not be feeling 100%. I hope the holiday will give you a chance to rest up. Is it some particular holiday or do you have the day off?

Memorial Day on Monday. My first paid work holiday since January 1st! =P

Sleeping pills will be mandatory, as is lying around watching movies. =)

Sounds lovely! Well, the lying around watching movies bit, anyway. Have a wonderful time.
