Word wars are great! Word wars are helpful! I have, to my own startlement, started drafting this novel in Scrivener--I went back in Scrivener to add in the couple of extra scene/bits, and then when I kept moving forward, I remained in Scrivener. Maybe I've broken free of the tyranny of MS Word? At any rate, my protagonists are being snarky at each other and in the narration, as is the proper function of protagonists in urban fantasy novels.
Intensely worried, off and on, about Life After Graduation. I must make All The Plans and then nothing can possibly go wrong! Weirdly, actually doing stuff--like looking up deadlines and making notes toward a personal statement--helps calm my brain down.
...but also, my mom and I went to the historic carousel in Como Park, because I may be a full and legal adult but carousels never get old, and it turned out to be free ride day. Free ride day on a historic carousel is pretty much unmitigated goodness. And after dinner I ended up in a park by a lake with my notebook, and it was a gorgeous evening, and then I got to talk to some good friends online and watch a bouncy vid about SPAAAACE.
It is almost a year until I graduate. I will figure something out. Okay, brain? Okay.
