I desperately need to get better about posting on here.
Although to be fair I didn't post anywhere much over the weekend at all. Bat Cat got out for the umpteenth time, he has a habit of running out a door when we're not looking. He did his usual trick of staying out for a couple of days and finally came back in yesterday evening, alleviating the incipient panic attack.
Me: I'm down to 550 words per day to meet my word count goal by the end of the year.
Editrix: ... you can type that with your NOSE.

look okay I know it is a time honored tradition to counter sex and gender bigotry with examples from nature but when Christian right religious types say things are "unnatural" they mean "counter to human nature as God created us", not "doesn't exist in animals", so all you're doing is reinforcing their idea that gays and trans are less than human by comparing them to animals
so please don't
A conversation between me and the Editrix about Lifestyles of the Witch and Famous:
Editrix: [I don't know if anyone ELSE will get it but I fucking love this callback to Edith Roosevelt. XD]
Me: [Look I HAD TO.]
Did not get all of my Galaxy Hillbillies Nanoing for today done before I left work, but I did get half of it done. Now if I can get some edits done in their place, I'll only have 800 or so words to write when I get home. Progress! #amwriting
And then I went home and did a whole lot of doodling because I didn't have to write because I did it all in the morning and during the day. YASSSSS.
Also my #Huevember drawing ended up being tones of gray-silver so... I don't know if that counts. I'll break out the colored pencils tonight. Though also I'm just happy to be drawing regularly.
Brain the proper response to a writing challenge is not to jack up the energy and turn down the focus all the way. No. Stoppit. #amwriting
Okay. Balancing the Southern Gothic mood and atmosphere with the science fiction of a generation ship is going to be a really interesting head trip of a challenge. *rolls up sleeves*
It's so grounded in the earth, in terrestrial things and low tech things, I didn't really appreciate what I was in for until I started reading Southern Gothic right before I started writing.
Welp. Let it never be said I didn't embrace a challenge. #amwriting
Also I have discovered that Huevember is a thing, which may result in me trying to do way too many creative things at once on top of a day job. I'm not entirely sure I care. I need to practice making drawn art too!
Also I've wanted to experiment with watercolors for a while, which seems like a thing people do for Huevember? Art with watercolors? I want to do so much art. But it has to be art I can take with me to work, which means my giant box of colored pencils is a no-go.
