Gentle reminder that it's okay to go to sleep when you're tired. It doesn't make you lazy or mean that you aren't committed to your job, schoolwork, or whatever else compels you to stay awake.
Getting enough sleep is a responsible thing to do, and necessary for the health of your flesh-body.
My friends, I have an informal poll for you: what are the necessary and relevant qualifications for "fantasy" as a fiction genre to you?
Every once in a while I look at this cast and think "am I overdoing this because I've been part of the queer kids groups since middle school?" but you know what. Fuckit.
(Actually what I really want is Aughra's orrery. If I had Elon Musk's money I would totally build Aughra's orrery.
I'd let people come in and tour it and live in a closed off part. Or I'd have a big version for people to tour and a smaller version to live in. Yes.)
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.)
I will be amazed if I get all the writing work done today that I wanted to, I'm decompressing so flat I can barely get through day jobligations. Ugh.

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.
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
