Editorial remarks: Today was as close as I’ve come to missing goal. I pulled it out in the end, but I spent my entire afternoon and evening doing Dad things with the_child, which take priority until they don’t. One of the subtle tragedies of being a writer is how much you are willing to sacrifice of what was once not subject to compromise. It is like serving a lesser god.
On the plus side, she read me ten pages out of the middle reader her class is working through, and hand-wrote about six pages (double spaced) of a story in her class notebook. So this was time very well spent.
