Day What How Much Pen Ink
  • 26 September to 3 October
  • 4 October
  • First draft of “Johnson’s Folly.”
  • First draft of “Heretics.”
  • Six manuscript pages.
  • Five pages
  • A mad rumpus of pens still inked from last week and the Pelikan Hub.
  • Pelikan 120

I did not go to Ontario. My father had a fine time.

I stayed home and saw to my wife’s needs… as well as I could, after twisting the crap out of my ankle shortly before noon on the 26th last.  This put paid to a lot of the “Oh, well, at least I have a week of not going to work so I can do X and Y around the house” notions I had developed the night of my last entry when the final decision was made. Not only did I not accomplish much, what I did manage was painful and frustrating. At least I managed to get antibiotics into the sick cat on a more or less regular basis, even though I had to limp into the basement to catch him for at least half the doses.

I see I did not mention the sick cat in the last entry. Yes, there was also one of those.

And to cap all, I left the book I hardly got anything written in the whole time at home, so to not waste today’s writing time, I had to start something new. Which will get precedence next week, I wonder….

Just so I don’t leave the day on without any shine on it– happy birthday to Buster Keaton, who would, had he defied entropy like he defied physics, be 123 today.

He was, clearly, born to party.
