[200q20v] gear shifting problems

this just suddenly(past day or two) cropped up...it's getting really
difficult to shift my car, and the shifter feels very different;
seems to "float" a lot more when the stick is in neutral, whereas
before, even in neutral, you could "feel" things moving around and
the shifter had some resistance.
1st is so-so; 2nd gear I am -constantly- missing; it never full
engages and grinds the gears. 3rd is now showing signs of the same;
4th/5th seem to be fine.
Once the car is in gear, the shifter seems fine and shows the usual
"in gear" play. But getting into the gear is a royal PITA.
Reverse as always, never likes to engage. 5th once in a blue moon
refuses to go.
What do I look for? I'm short on tools+time at the moment, and I
need to be back in NY tomorrow.
