May 10

No writing progress made.

What a strange day! I had two unexpected errands that took me out of the house, and then my internet decided to barely work at all. At first I thought this might be a blessing in disguise and stop me from procrastinating, but I had research I wanted to do and I couldn’t do it at dial-up internet speeds. I ended up reading instead to stop myself from getting too frustrated.
