slow going tonight, just crawling along. I got stuck down the research path. They only have chipmunks (siberian) in Hokkaido (to tired/lazy to look up spelling, should just say northern Japan). So I had to find a replacement creature. Went back and forth for awhile, asked Cheese his opinion, but in the end dwarf flying squirrels are nocturnal, so I used red instead.

I wrote really clunky transitions. And am very unclear on...a lot.

That's great progress. You are gonna do this! Don't worry about clunky transitions. We can get all flowery and writerly on the second draft (this is what I tell myself)

Thanks. Seems no matter how many times I try to tell myself this, I still get upset and worried about it. It is good to have somone else saying it to me too.

Well done, Taffiny! Keep it coming!

Thank you :)

Weird day so far, kept Cheese home from school, waiting for pediatrician to call back. Waiting two hours so far. Perhaps I should go pelt him with a few snowballs? Maybe then he will answer my question?
Hmm, probably not, and anyway my aim is very bad, and I would have to touch the cold cold snow in my attempt. Oh, I guess I will just call him again instead.

Hope you are having a good day.
