WIP day, as opposed to revision day, and I actually got a couple of pages down! When writing, I have to take breaks-that-are-not-actually-breaks to do research. It's like writing your way up to a cliff and then realizing you have to write yourself a little bridge to get over that deep, deep gorge. Gulp.
Today's research included:
What doctors who supervise interns are called
Course titles of medical school students
Bodies of water that appear turquoise in color
The Great Barrier Reef
Fish of the GBR
Pretty fish of the GBR
Anemones or coral?
The last one triggered a need to listen to Owl City while I attempted to finish the second page, during which I was interrupted at least fourteen separate times:
by my I-need-to-see-my-girlfriend-tonight-can-you-drive-us? 15-year old (eight times, possibly more)
by the cable guy asking if we have a dog because he needed to screw with the cable box in the back yard
by cats knocking stuff off of Paul's desk (twice)
by various phone calls (three - and no one ever calls me! WTF?)
I suppose writing two pages was sort of a miracle (and/or those pages are total crap).
