Zokutou is back, yay!

Anyway, I slacked yesterday. I wanted to listen to the Cal game, which was right in the middle of meetup, and so I slacked, but I had slack in the schedule. Today I wrote more.

zibblsnrt has jokingly asked me if I'm doing NaNoWriFo. ...with it being only five days in, and I'm already at 15k, a two week 50k binge is entirely possible. I don't know if I'll stress myself out to try, but if I do, it could be fun.

There's new stuff in katsterwrites, and tomorrow I'll put up the beginning of Chapter 2, which is punctuated by Finnegan vs. the hurricane. (I'm thinking of changing that -- I'm using hurricane because that's what they're called in my dialect of English, but I considered cyclone and typhoon. None of them really seem to have the right feel for high fantasy, though.) Anyway, Chapter 2 is dragging a bit. It's like, c'mon characters, hurry up and get to idyllic fantasy village where the children can grow up.

In other news, I have a cold. And now my ears are plugged. And it's been two weeks, and I'm pretty much only functional by liberal application of sudafed, cough syrup, cough drops, and kill headache dead medication. And my ears are still plugged, and I can't hear well in ambient settings -- which means, while I might be able to hear with a phone up to my ear or with my headphones on, I can't hear a person trying to converse with me when I'm nearly standing in front of them. I think it's doctor time tomorrow.

Other than that, I'm doing okay. How about you, LJ world?
