…and I’m really anxious. This is the only one to have given me anything that has helped with the tumor’s effect of exhausting me. I’ve also necer interacted with their office without being misgendered, forced to give my deadname, and generally treated as subhuman. I was actually referred to, to my face, as “an interesting case study” by the doctor in question. Who always corrects herself after misgendering me in my presence, but also never gets my pronouns right the first time, either. On the one hand, it is incredibly demoralizing to see this office. On the other hand… not being exhausted 24/7 is pretty vital to my quality of life.
I hope I can get her to just verify the current treatment at the current dose is working so I can transfer the prescription to my regular doctor’s office.

Rather than putzing around with tracking word totals, I’m going to try something a little different and just keep track of chapters that are in progress or were completed on a given day. It’s a little easier on me, anyway, which makes it more likely that I’ll actually do these posts.
I’ve set myself a writing schedule… It’s pretty ambitious, so I’m a little leery of the potential for beating myself up if it turns out to be too ambitious, heh. On the other hand? I think it would be pretty awesome to make some serious progress with my writing. I’m hoping to be getting enough done to keep up with Midinght Moonlight, Et Alia (up to the end of book 2), and make a decent start on a purely ‘for sale’ series.
I kind of hate the thought of doing a purely ‘for sale’ series… but at the same time, I need to do something to start building up my income from writing or I’m never going to be able to break my dependency on my current day job, you know? Anyway, that’s the plan in a nutshell, for now.

Hi eveyone! Nothing much really to say, except that I feel like I’ve been in the zone for writing… and that makes the day job excruciatingly boring in comparison. Oh well. On the plus side: I’ve been feeling a lot better lately. Probably because I finally came out completely at work and started going by my feminine name and pronouns full time! But possibly because writing is awesome. Or some combination thereof. Anyway, I don’t really have much important to say (like I said) so I’ll stop babbling now.

I also wrote a few snippets that will be used for future chapters, including a chunk for Wednesday’s, but I didn’t tally up the count on those ’cause I wrote them in Google Keep instead of Jotter Pad. (Finding an app that includes running word counts as well as Markdown to HTML conversion is surprisingly difficult on android.)

It has been another emotionally intense day, but good. I came out to the rest of management at work, and specifically requested they address me with my preferred name and pronouns. My wife stood up to her family and told them we wouldn’t put up with their guilt trips — or showing up for the holidays this year. (I k ow that sounds bad, but it is such a huge relief, words fail me.) So, yeah. Its been a hard day; an exhausting day… But a good one, too.

Hi! Its been a pretty productive day. That’s good, because Thursday I’ll be driving up to spend a week doing holiday stuff with the in-laws. So, here’s hoping for another productive day tomorrow, so I can get Friday’s up without a delay, too. 🙂 But for now: sleep. Wow, I need that.

Sadly, not much to say. I had high hopes for getting this chapter done today — I’m actually in a pretty good place, writing-wise. Today I just wound up getting sideswiped by a lot of unrelated stuff.

I had a kind of rough day. The pressure dropped really far last night and was on its way up again, leaving me light headed and dizzy all morning. But I got today’s post up in time regardless! (I honestly thought I would be posting it tomorrow instead of scheduling it today.)
