So my mom bought me a cape with a paw that has a hood with ears. I thought it was a dog hoodie, because I love dogs. And so did my mom when she bought it. But one of my sisters pointed out that no, it was actually a cat cape.
Well, no matter. I’ll be catdog. It really is such a cute cape.
And we did go out for lunch today all together. It was very nice. I had beef stomach soup for the first time in years and it was delicious. I don’t know why I hated it so much when I was younger. I now have a better appreciation for organ meats. I also had a trout with garlic, which has always been my favorite. I can’t remember the last time we all spent time together calmly like this.
Ah, yesterday I was thinking that… that I’ll always think of Aioros as a dweeb. I cannot really take him seriously. I see too much of myself in him. From the sign, to the taking care of the siblings on his own, to the being the only one who points out something wrong and ends up getting murdered for it. It’s all too much for me. Like when you stare too much at your reflection because it’s you, but also if you stare for too long you start to pinpoint all the flaws and ugly parts.
I think that’s why I find it a bit hard to write him. Much harder than Milo and Camus, that’s for sure. But those two are so easy to write because I see nothing of myself on them, so it’s kind of like playing with dolls.
As for actual writing, I didn’t get too much done. With so many things to do and how noisy it is at my parents’ house, it’s hard to find the time to write, and even harder to concentrate.
But I reached 20k today, which was nice. And the story is rolling in a much more interesting way now, too. Unplanned things are happening and in a much better way than I could have envisioned too.
So, slow but nice progress I guess?
