When I'm writing something new I do find my wait at the bus stop and ride on the bus quite productive sometimes. Maybe I just need to start taking my notebook with me again - despite it being pitch black out when I go to work these days. And your offer of a critique is generous too - maybe I'll take you up on it. But sleep needs to come first !
Weird question, but it works for me sometimes--do you have a cell phone that you could take quick notes on and/or poke at drafts in progress with? (Preferably one with access to Google Docs or some such, for easy transfer from device to device.) I can't edit longer pieces on my phone, but I can write early draft material on it. Might work for you; might not. (My mom doesn't understand why it worked for me.)
