Itching to Work on Second Novel

I’m itching to finish up my first draft of my second book. Today, I’m grading finals and entering grades, and then I will be clear until Wednesday when I have to give only one more student the final. Really, I can’t enter my grades until next Friday, the designated day of the final. I always have at least one student show up, who I have not seen all semester. I’m giving the final early this year; it’s my last semester, and I’ve never given early. The students seemed relieved that they don’t have to wait until next Friday, and then I’m finished with teaching for now. What am I going to do until next Friday? I’m going to get through today with grading and entering grades, and then I can write. Like I said, I’ve got to finish up that rough draft.
