May 6: 1,000 words, and the rough draft of "Allergy Season" is done. And I might as well admit it--I'm a fairly organic writer. I believe in outlining, and I try to do it, but I get the best ideas while I'm writing, and I like revising the story later. So I do a combination of outlining and spontaneous creation, then clean it all up after letting it sit for a few weeks. At least that's what I do now.

In other news: I have three busy weekends in a row coming up, and I have an obscenity-load of things to do.
- Half-hour walk around the neighborhood pushing Felix in his stroller yesterday.
