Well, I dunno. I finished Nothing Broken, the first of the Taiwan novellas, yesterday morning; and thought whoop-de-doo, weekend off. Watch sport, read books, go out and get drunk, sleep late, start again...
So yesterday afternoon I wrote a first response to the Canadian academic, and then spent an absurd amount of time cooking a ridiculously large & complicated biryani, with lentils and potatoes and rice and chicken and green beans and saffron and such, it could feed a dozen and there's no one but me to eat it; today I started the second novella, For Filumena Chen. You’ve got to hand it to me, some folks just do know how to have a good time.
