I crashed after Chapter 10. Big time. Friday night, I went to bed at 7:00. Saturday I had to work, then went to a social event Saturday night. It was fun, but my poor introverted soul has not had nearly enough alone-time lately, and I was still processing Chapter 10. So I crashed yesterday. Didn't go to church, cancelled lunch with my friend, cancelled tennis with my other friend, didn't even go hiking, even though it was a beautiful day and a perfect day for being outdoors. Didn't even do my long run.
I slept. I nursed a splitting headache. (No, I wasn't hungover.) I played a little bit of piano, but I barely even had the energy for that. I caught up on some e-mails throughout the day. I petted the cats. I didn't have the energy for much more.
So now it's Monday morning, and I'm rested and ready to start Chapter 11. I have a million other things to do today, but it's not a bookstore day and the novel is first priority this morning. So ... onward to Chapter 11!
