It's getting harder keeping up. Have a bunch of work stuff that's wearing away at me and I'm constantly fitting in the writing at the end of the day, when the brain has pretty much had enough.
A few years ago I started a notebook and have 40 A4 pages of notes, memories, reminisces. The plan has always been to type these up so that's what I did the past two days. I'm typing up my notes rather than writing fresh stuff. It's still part of my draft and it's helping me figure out the structure, and I'm getting everything in one place so that from December I can begin the real work of creating a proper draft.
