August 16, 2007—typing, typing, typing

I’ve been typing every second that I can bear it for the last three days. My eyes are shot and my arms are killing me.

I go for about an hour and then have to go stretch for awhile and look at the newspaper. I needed to get about 35,000 words typed in from the manuscript so that I can start working on it. I should be done before the weekend for sure—maybe this afternoon.

It’s mostly pretty tedious but it’s a good way to review it and to think about what work needs to be done it. As I type I keep a running list of editing/rewrite notes that I’ll use to guide me.
