Just One Thing

A difficult day. Yesterday's panic - OHMYGODWHENWILLIFINISHTHISGODDAMNEDBOOK - has given way to general paralysis interspersed with grumpy efforts to complete long-neglected domestic tasks. Like putting the buttons back on the comforter cover, something I've had on my to-do list for ... years.

I tell myself, "Sit down and perfect one thing. Just one thing."
