Sleep is so unproductive.

Right -- a quick 2 minute break, because I've been staring at words on a screen for what feels like hours (and in fact... *is*). So obviously my break is to come and talk to you while staring at the exact same screen.

POP QUIZ:
What are you going to do first after the books are made available?
a) Immediately turn to and read your own chapter. Twice.
b) Work out which book you're in and sit down and start reading it, like a book.
c) Immediately turn to and read the duplicate of your chapter by the other person. Twice.
d) Ignore those, head straight to the .scriv file, to read other people's briefs.

Well, I've already done a) (my own file, of course), so I'll move onto b). Then c). No, maybe d). We can do that?

I had to work an 8 hour shift during this. I tried not to sleep, but drooling on my keyboard in a half conscious state was really unproductive. But then I was working out chapter details in my sleep. :twisted:
