tired brain  
Reading on screen is not easy. I got about halfway through the HoS manuscript, which is as much as I can handle tonight. It is extremely weird to read it. It's like reading something someone else wrote, that I've read many, many times. Do other writers on my flist find that happening?

There's a section in the middle that does seem like something I wrote, but I cannot for the life of me tell if the voice changes in there or if it's just that that several-chapter stretch changed less than other huge swathes of text, so it's literally more familiar to me (this book has been majorly rewritten 3 times; this, autopope, is why you need not whimper at my daily wordcount: my writing style can involve a *whole* lot of revision). Presumably commentary from der editrix will cover that, if it's a problem. I just ... man. Can't tell.

I would like very much to be well tomorrow, please.

I tend to write fast first drafts and then spend a little while gutting them, so I hear you there.

And also, sometimes when I'm rereading something I wrote, I totally forget about plot twists and such. It doesn't seem like I should forget, but then, I can't remember much about high school ten years ago, and that was three years of my life (which was spent sober and drug free) so I really shouldn't be surprised.

But I still am.
