This is super-exciting. I have all kinds of marvelous plans for what I can get done during that extra time. Of course, as soon as I listed my quarterly writing goals, any idea of "extra" time disappeared. How'd that happen?
It's a good reminder that no matter how much time we have, we need to manage it carefully. One of the pitfalls for writers can be doing way more research than is necessary. (Did you like that segue?) This article on analysis paralysis
makes a very good point.
To satiate the intellectual curiosity that yearns for more information
(and therefore stalls progress), set yourself parameters for what you
need to know (now) and what you’d like to know (in the future).
I should confess that I found this article while doing story research! Serendipity is good, too, but there needs to be a balance.

I'm back to chipping away on the novel. Actual progress is being made. Huzzah! I'm also making progress on long-overdue edits, so I hope to get more short stories into circulation soon. And next month, I'm teaching a class on selling short stories!
