I… read a lot this week? I lost half a day to Band Sinister by KJ Charles (delightful gay regency rom-com with a virgin hero who pretty clearly has The Anxiety and the rake who helps him get out of his head a bit) and then dove straight into JL Merrow’s The Plumber’s Mate series (slightly psychic plumber helps his PI nemesis/boyfriend/fiance (as the series goes on) fight crime!) 

Also I started writing the next werewolf book (a little holiday novella which I would like to have out… for the holidays, so a bit time-sensitive) while also getting crit comments on the book I just finished writing, so, uh, I have been all over the place this week. 

But I did write some fic, too!

There Is No Shortage of Blood:  106, and I am definitely doing that thing where I’m like “but it’s almost dooooone, why do I actually have to write the ennnnndiiiiiing???” so, uh, sorry everyone who is waiting for the ending! I promise I will pull myself together and write it eventually.

I FINISHED WRITING THE BOOK YOU GUYS. 

I wrote a bit over 15,000 words of book this week, and, uh, continued to spend more time playing Stardew Valley than writing fic (Farmer Chidi and Haley are engaged!!!! and oh man I don’t usually do a ton of Haley’s dialogue/friend scenes but I was VERY RIGHT about her being Stardew Valley’s Eleanor. Farmer Chidi is not particularly in character as Chidi because I couldn’t bear to lose him friendship points through Kantian Honesty but whatever, The Good Farm really IS his good place, okay). 

Also, I wrote some fic!

Bitty pre-series fic for Psychic Wolves for Lupercalia 2018 2019 maybe soon?: 575, OKAY SO WHAT HAPPENED IS, I had abandoned this story in early March, because I got stuck but mostly because… depression… but the other day @sineala posted a reply to an ask about what the heck is going on with the wolfbrother AU phenomenon, in which she tagged me, and I was like “huh, you know, I wrote like 4,000 words about Eric Bittle getting a wolf before I trailed off, I want to reread that.” And then I reread it to the point where I got stuck in March, realized I could delete one paragraph and NOT make this a much wilder AU than I intended it to be, and … did that? and wrote some stuff? (And reread a whole bunch of Every Marine a Wolfbrother because I had just finished writing an entire novel and my brain was tired and sometimes you just want to reread your own fic for the mental equivalent of taking a nice nap without actually having to get to sleep, don’t judge me.) So anyway that’s what happened and now it’s, like, super close to being finished, so I might finish it? Maybe people will want to read it?? WHO KNOWS. ANYTHING IS POSSIBLE, ESPECIALLY WHEN YOU ARE NOT CRUSHINGLY DEPRESSED.

Another week of mostly focusing on the werewolf book–3 ½ chapters to go! In, uh, not very many days! THIS IS FINE. Also a lot of Stardew Valley. I discovered mods and now everything is new again and I am plotting to make a farmer named Chidi (living on The Good Farm, obvs) to romance Haley. Because. Obviously.

ANYWAY. I also write actual fic instead of acting it out in video games.

Oh God we’re halfway through September already and I have six chapters of the next werewolf book left to write. Which is fine, but, uh, I will probably continue to have less brain available for fic than I usually do. Although it also seems like my current bout of Stardew Valley Malaria may be running its course, so maybe I will be reclaiming a lot of brain-hours from that soon.

I wrote a lot this week (my writing-est week of 2018 so far!) but the large majority of it was pro stuff (10k on the next werewolf book, 1k on the book that isn’t about werewolves), so I am not feeling TOO bad about the number of hours I’ve spent playing Stardew Valley this weekend.

Um. Like. I am not judging myself, is what I mean. My wrists feel… kinda bad. 

Anyway! Writing! Of the fic kind!

My family is all out of the house and I have been Home Alone for three days and it is SO GREAT. I’m also still recovering from my voice-stealing cold and ten days of travel so writing is… getting there. BUT BEING HOME ALONE IS SO GREAT AND I REALLY NEED TO MOVE OUT AT SOME POINT.

Little Bitty Spite Fic: 182, because last night around 1 AM I was looking for prompt blogs and found one that had nice “imagine your OTP” prompts and then a bewildering intermixture of personal screed posts, including one “hell yeah I’m an anti” post followed by a post equating ageplay kinksters with pedophiles (and TERFs, for extra bewilderment) so now I am DEFINITELY writing their most recent prompt about Jamesy and his Daddy.

The last two weeks have included not much writing, but a fair bit of:

Driving to Chicagoland

Plotting out the NEXT romance series I’m (that is, @dessa-lux is) gonna write after I get done with these werewolves

Helping BFF and her husband move house with toddler and dog in tow, although I steered clear of the marital IKEA-furniture-assembling

Spending many many hours primarily responsible for said toddler, particularly nose-wiping

To the surprise of no one, coming down with a cold

Attending the last @vividconofficial 

Losing my voice for the first time I can remember, due to some combination of the above?!

But anyway I also did a little bit of writing!?
