I am the type of person who usually wakes up thinking about something. For months, odds were that I would awaken thinking about administrativa or about something I had to do. Today, I awoke thinking about my book. Including a fresh new chapter title. I’m not out of the woods with grading and such quite yet, but it was good to start the day with text about ideas, rather than text about something else. It bodes well for summer, when I hope to make up for lost time on writing.
