workout: lower body; very tiring
treat for the day: a long soak (the gym has a big hot tub) and exfoliation
Today went better than yesterday on the writing front. Don’t be shocked at the word count. I’ve been able to use stuff from my old pre-writing drafts, and I’m not editing as I write, so it’s not as super-polished as drafts of people who revise as they go.

I’m fairly happy with the progress and what I have so far. I think the character motivation, etc. is better explained. I may need to write a couple of new scenes to clarify villain GMC, but I’m going to wait until I’m done with this draft before I make the final determination.
Now on to the life stuff —
Last night, Kuro escaped. Hero Material realized that he was gone when he saw a hamster running around in the living room. (Other hamsters stayed in the cage like good lil rodents!) Kuro found the sunflower seed stash, so he went hog-wild and left piles of empty husks behind him. Furthermore, he managed to climb up the couch and took a bunch of tissue papers to make a nest behind the couch. I know I’m supposed to get mad at him for being a naughty boy, but he’s absolutely precious. Besides how can you scold a hamster who looks at you with such big sparkly eyes? *sigh*
Hero Material and I know how Kuro managed to get out of the cage, so he can’t repeat the experience. I guess that’s punishment enough.
