#37 out of 40 — B-Day Part Deux

When your birthday happens to fall on a Saturday, bleeding it into Sunday and making it a birthday weekend is really the only way to go, isn't it? Well that's we did!

Again got my writing in first thing in the morning.

Day 52 of writing streak. 1,700 words done on the novel. Feeling good, having hit a bit of a milestone -- 20%, or one fifth done! (Assuming I come in anywhere near the projected wordcount, of course. Right now I'm running long against my outline estimates).

Later in the morning went for a hike, and a short walk in the evening. Miles done for the day.

Again, a lovely lunch (Chinese) and a nice dinner (Mexican) out and about.

Then spent about an hour reading several astronomy-related texts, trying to brush up on some basics. Also read the first chapter of Leonard Susskind and George Hrabovsky's nifty little book, The Theoretical Minimum: What You Need to Know to Start Doing Physics. Enjoyed it thus far, but it's just starting to get interesting.
