Yesterday I decided to follow my own 15-minute rule, but apply it strictly to the historylink.org article. I didn't make visible progress, but I did sit in a stare-down with the muse for more than 15 minutes. In fact, for more like an hour I stuck with the article, downloaded more information, reread, thought, did some gear-grinding. It's all good.
Awake early this morning, I hauled out my poetry manuscript and went all the way through it.
