Hi, everyone! It’s that time again! Weekly updates delivered every Friday! Before we get to anything else, I have an announcement to make. We’ve reached one of the Patreon milestones and goals! Thank you all so much for your support. It means the world.
The goal we’ve reached is the one that makes the sporadic(ish) longer essay drafts about asexual and aromantic representation available to *all* patrons! That means that, if we’ve still reached this goal the next time Patreon collects (that is, like, 2 weeks from now eep), I’ll start unlocking the older essays one a month and the finished draft of Sing to Me will be posted for all patrons to enjoy! WHOOHOO!
Thank you all so much! I’m just floored and flabbergasted and humbled. You are fantastic people. <3

Look at me go! The writing numbers are a bit of a mess this month because it’s a combination of not recalling when I edited what and rewriting – which yes means I rewrote every word and every sentence even if I didn’t change a thing – but that’s… honestly why I upped the word count this month to begin with. I edit much, much faster than my rough first drafts, so I can up the word count.

DemiPrincess2: Progress is go! I think I mentioned that I hit a point where I knew I needed to go back to revise? If not, I did! And… I finally got that revision sorted out, so I’m making headway getting back to where I left off. So far it’s already resulted in a vastly different opening scene. It took a lot of anxiety and a lot longer than I thought, but I think it’s much stronger now.
Life And Other Such Important Matters
You know when an opportunity arrives that is basically everything you wanted and it seems too good to be true and you’re praying will all your heart and soul that a) it is as good as it sounds, b) the opportunity won’t pass you by? That is my life right now and I’m not saying anything else in case I jinx it.
Also a bunch of geese have decided to live in the vicinity and they alternate between giving me joy and filling with an intense hatred of all things goose-related because when they make noise, they make a lot of noise. Like a lot.
Stand-out Positive Moment
[points up to the top] You all are AMAZING! Thank you so much!
