Eight Day Marathon - Day Three

Today I am supposed to be writing. As of 12.37 pm I am already 37 minutes behind... I have until 5 pm to finish all the linking/bridge scenes. I don't know whether to laugh or just grit my teeth and get on with it. Up late yesterday finishing research - I'm still reading I Claudius and still haven't finished the Oxford Companion to Classical Civilization but I waded through four/five other books yesterday and got caught up on a lot of reading this morning.
On a side note, I don't think I like Ian Rankin's writing very much, I'm sorry to say. Don't know how far I'll get in the short stories. It's a strange combination of third person narrative that's supposed to be focused on Rebus and yet barely delves into his mind at all, so that the reader feels two steps behind.
At the same time as the research, I got further afield in my list of names, so now I can spend more time writing tomorrow and maybe even Wednesday, if I'm organized...
First cup of coffee.
