I did something extremely unusual today and worked on my article from 8:30 am to 3 pm. I don’t normally do this kind of thing. I write my 200 words and go do something else. But today I did nothing but the article. I didn’t even cook.
I ended up with 800 new words and much of the very complex bibliographic compliance done. Felt completely exhausted at the end. It’s scary how productive I could be if I had psychological energy to work like this every day.
