DemiPrincess2: [keels over] Chapter 15 is done! In draft form anyway. That puts me about… 30K from the end? Ish? At long last? I love these characters, but. Graaaaaaaah! I’m now back to the scenes of Demisexual Princess Explores Dating. Well, sort of. But here, have a very short summary of Fili in chapter 15:

Fili: I’m a misanthrope. I hate people. People are the worst and everyone could just die and it’d be perfectly fine.
Also Fili: [is rushing into a burning building to save a trapped child while saying the above]

Okay, that’s not actually what happens, but it is that vibe. Bless him.

Life And Other Such Important Matters

Life is… Well, it is. The awesome opportunity sadly did not work out and New Dog had what we presume is another epileptic attack. So now we need new meds. But also this time around we filmed it, so at least the vets can see what happened!

In other news, I’m stuck in deadline hell. Gaaaaah. So the schedule for the next week or so is a little borked and I may not make the 5K fiction goal! Aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah!!!! [flail] (It’s okay. Breathe. It’s okay. Wait. Also I forgot to add the editing I did. That puts it closer. I’m pretty sure. I just. Don’t remember what the wordcount is or the length of time I edited. Aaaaah! Now my stats are inaccurate!)

So, well, as you can see, life at the moment is FLAIL. But hey some of the tough emotional/social aspects of it may be slowing down now, so we just have to make sure New Dog is okay and maybe/hopefully things will be better and I can actually, like, advertise that I do editing and have slots available? Just got to make it through these final days of September and things will calm down again. I can’t wait! Aaaaaah!

Stand-out Positive Moment

I now have a set of very pretty dice. That arrived, like, a week before they were estimated to arrive. I am very pleased and happy. (We’ve also learnt that I’m very definitely a Fancy Dice person, but honestly that probably won’t surprise anyone who knows me.)
