*stares at list of writing projects to do*
Edits on this, edits on that, drafting on three different things, logistics on the other thing, and where is my focus? Where is it, I ask y o u?
No, really, where is it, because my brain is running in circles very fast and this is not useful.
I have one vote for western fantasy on Twitter and one vote for acquatic fantasy on Mastadon! Guess which one I'm going to write.
Of course it's both, what do you take me for. #amwriting
Someone decide which story I'm working on so I can break out of decision paralysis and start writing already.
Currently writing background for the high school magic wielding superhero series and so far I have one likely genderfluid character, one bi secondary character, one lesbishedoesn't know character, one bi main character...
Me: Can you tell it's doing the thing where it's putting itself together behind the curtain and not letting me see until I have fingers to kb? And then not further than the next few paragraphs?
Editrix: YES. YES IT IS.
And now, worldbuilding Starlight, with a huge backlog of stuff I should have figured out long ago. I need an orrery.
(Actually what I need is to figure out how to build my own orrery, which shouldn't be too hard, but what I want is a program that builds a virtual orrery.)
This story is going all over the damn place and I have no idea what's going on yaaaaay. #amwriting

The odds of him living to be 18-20 aren't good, but we in all likelihood have a few more years with him. And to be fair, the fact that I've been around cats who live to 20 and up is sort of an outlier anyway.

Okay! We saw the surgeon, who pronounced Mikey all healed from the operation. We saw the oncologist, who recommended two chemo drugs, Palladia and CCNU. The cost was not as high as I expected for each, and he said we could take our time in deciding. In the meantime keep him on prednisolone and benadryl for the antihistamine, give him prilosec to help heal his gut, and he's a good kitty.
I may collapse in relief.
I love all my girls in this book, but today I love how they eat ice cream when they're upset and aren't ashamed of it. #amwriting
Okay. That's about 1500 words written in The Fae After Tomorrow, which, wow. I think that's finally going smooth again.
Next up: Line edits, legal crap, and trying to thread my way through the damn phonetic alphabet so I can make good and proper choices for worldbuilding. The things I do for my novels. #amwriting
*punches self in the head* Lifestyles later, self, The Fae After Tomorrow now. Write the damn words. #amwriting
