School’s out, the room’s packed up, my tests and homework’s are graded, and I have an hour and a half until I teach my night class.  My science fiction novel, day 1, officially starts!  I have 90 minutes to start hammering out the ideas, characters, plots, twists, conflicts, settings, and surprises that have been stirring in the back of my mind for the past two years.  Oops, down to 89 minutes — I’d best get back to work!
