Kitty: Wherein a Lynn attempts something approaching horror. And fails miserably.

DemiPrincess2: I FOUGHT THIS CHAPTER AND I WON. It’s a pyrrhic victory because the whole thing is destined for the scrap once I figure out what the issue is, but it is done.

Life And Other Such Important Matters

Well. As those of you on Twitter have undoubtedly noticed, this week was awful. Twi, our neurotic and half-feral cat that only cannot be described as Houdini because she’ll escape from confinement by breaking everything (yes, everything) rather than leaving it intact, needs to see the vet. Thankfully, this is not urgent-urgent and can hold off a bit, which is good because that same day the car was declared no longer roadworthy. No accidents or anything, just older parts breaking down to where it’s cheaper to get a new car. Which was not in the budget.

Things are a bit of a mess right now, basically. I’m behind on my NaNoWriMo goals and this novel just keeps fighting me. I’m really tired of that. I know it means something is off and wrong, but I haven’t quite figured out what the issue is yet. I juuuuuuust want to get back to having (and posting) regular WIP content on Patreon right now. (Trust me, it is not even in that level of sharability.)

Stand-out Positive Moment

The people who reached out to me with support when I was frazzledly asking for help as best I could. (Truly, I am terrible at asking for help or explaining why, especially when this is relatively minor but this week’s been a lot of dealing with microaggressions and some ‘allies’ proving they don’t give a shit about the people they claim to be supporting, and. Just. Learning my precious bb needs to see the vet was the last straw. She’s such a sweet and affectionate cat.)

Anyway! So people RTed my flaily thread and reached out to me and it… Well, it meant a lot to know so many people care is all. <3
