Aug 25: I can’t get no
It’s kind of a bad sign when the highlight of your day is the fact that they played “Satisfaction” on the radio during your drive to campus.

Not that it was a bad day, it was just surprisingly dull, especially considering that today was the first day of the semester. The class looks like it should be all right, though some of the reading is going to get heavy and/or dull. (But I already knew that.) Have to wait and see how the other class looks.

Of course, technically, the Stones weren’t actually the highlight of my day, but half the real highlight is yet to come: I realized (about five minutes before I had to leave for class) both why the Judgement of Paris sequence in my Trojan War novel wasn’t working, and how I could fix it. Requires me to re-write (from the ground up!) about half the chapter, but it should work a lot better than the version I’ve got. So the real highlight won’t be complete until I’ve done the re-write, but so far all I’ve got is about half a paragraph that I wrote shortly before class and in the mid-class break. (And that half-paragraph is on my iPad, so I’m probably just going to start over anyway, ’cause I don’t know how to get anything off my iPad. (Normally, I use Windows stuff. But there was a game I really wanted to play that was exclusive to IOS, so…I’m mostly just using it for class notes to excuse the expense of buying the thing.))
