Well, the bad news is we're a lot more doomed than we thought. I was optimistic. We made it through about a tenth of our Noragami script in just one CD during the week, so I figured we could make it to the halfway mark without too much trouble. Oh, how wrong I was. I don't even know if this script is any good right now. It might be; I honestly just don't remember anything. Too much research; it blocks out everything else. And everything kept stopping. And it feels like the only people who talk are the ones that are hard to write. So...yeah. Just doomed.

But the good news is, one of the kittens let us pet her! Yay! She likes to sleep on top of a box that's pretty close to our front door, and she's at a point where she isn't too alarmed when the door opens (which has been happening surprisingly frequently for people who are so doomed with work, but we had to go to the store again today to get a water filter and chocolate). So I thought hey, she seems pretty laid back and not wanting to move right now--let's see if that keeps up. She was also asleep, but that changed right before I managed to touch her. She didn't seem to mind, though, so first I let her sniff my hand (to which her reaction seemed to be, "..."), and then I pet her! And she didn't run away! So I told Athena and then Athena got to pet her, and now Page is asking for attention, so we are very blessed in the kitty department today.

Today I'm thankful for having chocolate, having filtered water again, Curious Kitten letting us pet her, the hope that some distance will help clear our heads and make Noragami easier to work on come Monday, and Page being super cute yet again.

Awww...!! Well, I just finished reading My Monster Secret 2 (and bought 3!) so what comes to mind is something something don't overextend yourself, take it at your own pace~ Then you'll avoid a curry disaster or something :) But seriously, you can do this, and I'm sure your editor will understand the delay, because "This needs more research and care" is a totally valid claim for this series and we all want the best for it! And I think that stepping away from a big overwhelming thing for a bit, when you can, is often a good thing to do, so I hope it helps this time too!!

And the kitten let you both pet her! Happy happy day! :D

Thanks for the support! And the reminder of what can happen if you try too hard. ...Although I'm not sure if it's helpful or makes me more nervous. But I guess the point is just to not try hard, try soft. We're not too worried about whether or not we can get it in on time, since we've already discussed everything with our editor, but we would like to finish it and Fire Force this week so our deadlines aren't constantly backing up on each other. Next week, our schedule looks like it will open up a little bit, and we're hoping it stays that way.

Yes! But then when we got home from church today, she was a little more wary...but maybe just because she was more alert then. Her littermate was thiiiiiiis close to following us into our apartment, but while we were trying to figure out whether or not Page was saying, "Don't you let those kittens in my house!", the neighbors came out and all the kittens scattered (possibly to go to the neighbors' patio for food).
