I had quite the weekend, trying to get myself into a mood to write. Ha! Didn't quite work out the way I had planned (though things seem to be flowing a little better now). Our second escape room attempt of the month turned out much, much better than the first one, mainly because we had a better group (all six of us were pretty on the ball with figuring out the puzzles, and there was no naysaying-without-offering-alternative-ideas). We were so close to escaping, but didn't quite manage to get the last puzzle finished in time because we got stuck on one for a little too long in the middle. We're all hoping for an escape on attempt #3, in the final room of the establishment. It has a magic theme, so I'm 1000% down.

We went for pastries and tea at a Japanese café and then parted ways mid-afternoon. My brother and his girlfriend went off on their own (I think my brother was already contacting all his friends to try and set up a second escape attempt... it was his first escape room that day and he was hooked lol). One of my friends had a dinner to attend. My partner went off to a dodgeball meet. Me and my other friend killed a couple of hours not-quite-window shopping downtown, and then met my partner after his dodgeball had finished, for supper. I got to wear my new cat boots and use my new bag, which I had just finished sewing my skeleton cat patch on. jkdfnksdmla; So cute ♥

Anyway, Sunday was just me against myself. The most productive thing I managed was to get myself dressed to go buy milk, so that I could make pancakes to eat while I continued my Merlin rewatch (that is my usual pattern on Sunday mornings). Only three episodes left now until the end, which I am both looking forward to, and not. It wrecked me the first time, which was why I have never fully rewatched the series until now (I've mostly just rewatched the first two seasons, and some things here and there). But rewatching it in full, knowing what the ending is, what sort of twists are to come... man. Good thing I like laughing my butt off and also having my soul ripped out. Who doesn't!

The rest of that afternoon was spent trying to get myself to focus on writing, and not achieving said focus. I hammered out a small but solid start for the untitled ACBB fic, but not much else. I've managed to get some focus together today, but I have no idea if I will end up completing a minimum of 15K words by the end of the month for ACBB matching... not the end of the world if I don't manage this time. I'd rather drop out than rush. But I think, no matter when it is that I get it finished up, it'll be good :)

For now, I'm working on FS. It came first, so I intend to meet that chapter commitment before I truly dig into ACBB-fic.

It's really hard to believe that I just sort of gave up writing for nearly four years. It feels so natural to moonlight as a fic writer :p

Ah well. Back to the chapter, and my tea. Tonight I've had Chocolate Cake and Buddha's Blend.
