Day 57

12:13 A.M. -- Page 166

I don't want to rush the reading.  The thought is:  If you can read one page per hour, that's a good pace.  But you need to sleep as well.  So there's no problem with taking a nap in the middle of the day.  And then, at other times, there's just too much noise in the atmosphere to concentrate.  I've got the radiator fan and the bathroom fan blowing, and the bathroom fan is loud and it's grating, so it creates a nice loud cacophonous whirl.  It's a small room, so the sources of the noise are both near my bed, but in any case I usually read while standing up in the bathroom.  But the bathroom is two steps from my bed, so I can stand and read, and then sit down as soon as I'm done, without having to walk ten steps just to get back around to the open side of the bed.  Little shit like that makes a difference.  Before, there was one side of the bed next to the wall of the bathroom, but in this room the side of the bed is right in front of the bathroom door.  

There's a Will Smith and Margot Robbie movie on TBS right now, and I have no idea what it is.  It must have come out in the last couple years, but I really don't know what it is.  I'm pretty sure it's not Suicide Squad.  I've seen Suicide Squad, and I would remember if all these scenes were in it.

4:20 P.M.
I could tell I was getting tired earlier.  It was much harder to subvocalize the S and F sounds, which usually aren't much of a problem, but it was just getting difficult to do them.  So I've taken a break for the afternoon.  It would be nice to take a nap, but that hasn't happened yet.  I made a little diagram outline of a head and drew seven different arrows for the ways a D sound can be made.  Actually 8 arrows.  So if one imaginary muscle gets tired, another imaginary muscle can takes its place for a little while.  I just took a couple Advil.  The little muscles around your throat and vocal chords get tired when you're subvocalizing a lot. 

I picked up the book again and breezed through two paragraphs.  So it's definitely a case where you get tired and need a break.

That's 15 pages read today.  That would be a better baseline than 10 pages per day.
