I feel like I'm treading water with my novel. There are some transition sections that require drafting. It's like swimming pool-laps while editing the drafted chapters and then finding myself in the middle of "What Happens Now?!" Ocean. So, instead I'm enjoying word-play while writing my poetry in the morning and afternoon between reading sessions, which is akin to jumping in, splashing around for three-to-four-poem stints, and then soaking in the rays.
