Managed to get a little over an hour on the latest manuscript -- at least I've figured out what one of the characters is actually doing; before it was clear in my mind she kept saying all these 'Jim Kirk Woman' things like, "I am for you," or "We need your men." At least she didn't say anything like, "Come to me, puny Earth man," but it was close. It didn't help that she was wearing a skimpy outfit.
I did a quick review of an older story and I need to polish it up. I'm beginning to think that I should put my "finished" stories away for two or more weeks and see if they're still as great as I think they are. Actually, my entire story inventory needs a review and I need more things out in the mail.
Off to sleep.
