Honestly, I have nothing *to* report this morning except a wordcount. 1945 words by 8:05am; I think I’m on to something with this early-morning writing thing. The house is quiet, no one but me and the dog are up, and the dog doesn’t disturb me much, especially if she’s got 1. water 2. a peanutbutter bone and 3. food.

I anticipate finishing another chapter today, and hopefully finishing the rewrite of the preface-which-has-become-chapter-one of Manifest Destiny.

But now to shower and then to *eat*, because I’m SO hungry!

Thinks to do:

1. write 3000 words
2. swim^H^H^H^Hgym
3. balance checkbook
