It's amazing what you can get done when you wake up before the sun rises. Because, yes, boys and girls, that is what happened today. This isn't unusual when I'm nearing a deadline. However, it's not worrying about the book that makes sleep elusive; it's all the other stuff I've been putting off because I've been working so intensely on the book.
So before 8 a.m. I'd had breakfast, read two newspapers, sent two faxes, filled out two forms, prepared other stuff to take to the bank and checked my email. I suspect come about 3 o'clock I'll be in a zombie-like trance, so I may just take a nap. But it feels good to have gotten some of the nagging "secretarial" work out of the way.
Right now, though, it's time for another cup of tea (and not decaf).
