#5564: Weather is just crapinous today

It's cold, it's windy, and it's cloudy and dreary. How nice it is not to have to go anywhere today.

No further work done on the novel so far this week. I find that I'm needing to recharge a bit after pounding out the space war sequence. I know what's being written next; I just need to regain enough energy to do it. I haven't even looked at the manuscript since Tuesday night.

I'm happy with it, which probably means that it's got to go and be rewritten in its entirety, but that'll come later.

Not a lot else to say today. I spent most of my day asleep; Mrs. Fungus had some beauty treatment thing and didn't get back until 5 PM.

What I did do was watch a couple of YouTube videos on locomotives. The first was something I could have sworn I saw before, but which apparently didn't make much of an impact because I was surprised to learn that the first real steam locomotive was built in 1804. I'd thought the technology was newer than that--1830s or so.

Well, heck, the Newcomen atmospheric engine dates to the late 18th century, and the pressurized steam engine was Watt's development from that foundation. Watt's engines were low-pressure (3 PSI), and the high-pressure steam engine (30 psi) was a further refinement of that.

Man, I just have no energy at all.
