Okay, so I've done around 1,000 new this evening plus some revision even though I had a sleepy day.

We had tech rehearsal for the Wilmette show at 9 AM, and I had trouble going right to bed after rehearsal last night, even though I looked tired enough that people were hugging me and telling me to go home and get some sleep. It had been a full day -- teaching followed by a few hours of non-school-related writing and editing, and then our last pre-tech rehearsal.

This weekend, an out-of-town visitor will be my motivation. I'm going to push to get tons of work done when I'm not seeing him so I'll be able to enjoy myself when I am. He's an angel from my past who always inspires me.

Nicholas opens himself, and anyone around him, to possibility, whether you're ready for it or not. He's a trickster and a witch's boy and a holy man. When I first met Nicholas, I needed to be around someone who'd allow me to believe in anything and everything, who wouldn't put boundaries on my friendship or my imagination. During the time I knew him, I was pushing myself, wrestling and changing, and he, along with a few other angels, helped make that one of the most positive times in my life. I would not be who I am today if I hadn't met him. He's key.

And I haven't seen him face to face since 2001.
