1 Better than September, but that’s not saying much. I blame the election.

2 I always have a lot of first drafts "in progress," until one of them really grabs me and I work on it obsessively.

3 I employ a six-week "ripening" period for first drafts. Two of the three drafts here are actually ready for revision into second drafts; I just haven’t got around to them yet.

4 Still bottlenecked. Will persevere. Election’s over; time to get to work.
