Writing... oh well. But I seem to be managing 'squeeze out two hundred words a day'. Ten days of that will result in 2000 words of fic. And I only do it so that my fic-writing muscles don't atrophy completely, along with the word-finding ones. It's probably not age alone that withers the vocabulary; in my heyday I'd spend an easy two hours daily writing, and that keeps it limber. But then so does reading English, or reading the right kind of English, like O'Brian, and I have to make room for that too.
There'd be much more room without online solitaire. Just sayin'
