I've started being more conscientious about doing small exercises.

Writing: Today, I took the zeroth/first draft of "The Caterpillar on the Lear" as far as it's going. From here, I'll rewrite from printouts of that draft and of notes.

And then I find out how much unexplained background I can get away with.
