Minutes awake so far today: 600

Minutes spent sitting in front of the computer with the intent of writing:  270

Words written: 691

This is not a good ratio.

On the up side, I also went for a bike ride and took a shower, and I started reading From Homer to Harry Potter: A Handbook on Myth and Fantasy, which is my critical text for the term.  I like the authors already, and am really looking forward to getting into the meat of their book.
