9:50 am –

I feel much better today. Things are starting to gel, finally. I can see the ends of roads rather than just the beginnings, and that momentum will hopefully carry me through to getting something accomplished.

One thing I’ve noticed with editing is that I’m making progress, but it doesn’t feel like I’m making progress. It’s harder to judge the progress, especially with cycling, because I’m getting stuff partly done, over and over again.

I wish there was a better way to represent this so it would look like I’m making as much progress as I am. I think that would make me feel better. I like checking things off lists, and it’s harder to start when there’s nothing to check off after a big chunk of work time.

Freelancing feels a bit more linear, but for some reason it’s harder to do. I’m misaligned with it right now. But financially, I need to get it done.
