I almost didn't realise I'd posted so recently. Well! This time I'm considerably less pressed for, uh, time. So there's that!

I'm still way way behind on word count, of course; I don't think that's ever going to change, really. I started writing more from Sophia's point of view, though! She's fun to write, and also rather a bit easier than Jacob. Although that's probably only because I've spent almost 30k words in Jacob's head, so writing from anyone else's point of view is a nice change.

30k words. 33,368 words, to be precise. That's a lot of words. It comes out to 44 pages when accounting for font and point size; in 12pt TNR it's... apparently 55 pages, but the margins are weird. That's still a lot of pages. And I'm not even close to done yet! How crazy is that?

I'm all sniffly today for some reason and it's really annoying; I don't like it at all. I'd think I was coming down with something, but I don't seem to have a fever, so I'm probably not. At least I only have the one class today, so I don't have to sit through even more government ugh I really kind of hate that class.

Also! It turns out that the frantic effort I threw into doing that semi-paper (which I labelled as version 0.4, because it's hardly finished in the slightest) was entirely unnecessary, because not only did he not collect them at all, he didn't even get around to seeing if I had any questions or anything. I mean, he asked, barely, and I just said I was fine and didn't need help because, well... I don't, really. I already know what I want to write; I just have to actually write it. And hope that it doesn't go over the page limit. I could write a much longer paper than he's asking for, but, well, what he's asking for is the assignment, so I need to... not write more than he's asking for. I think nine pages is the limit; I don't know if that counts works cited or not. (I once wrote an eight-page research paper, but when counting my bibliography, it came out to eleven. I, uh. I cited a lot of works.) I guess I should email him and ask, but... ughhhhhh.

Also also! The biology presentation went swimmingly. A+ for us! It was apparently quite informative indeed, probably because all of us were concerned that it wouldn't be and so memorised a bunch of random facts about the disease to spout out when relevant. I had a lot of random science-y stuff in my head, actually, most of which I actually said... but I could also explain all of it! So that was okay.

I have an English paper due on Monday that I have absolutely no idea what to write about. It's supposed to be a personal experience essay and... ughhhh not good at those. My life is not interesting! I don't ever do anything! So it's kind of hard to find something we've read to relate to, because... there's not a whole lot to relate anything we've read to. I don't think there's even really much I can relate anything in the textbook to. But I'll have to come up with something, I guess.

Anyway, I should really probably get back to Soulcatcher - the 9k I'm behind on isn't going to write itself, after all! (And honestly, I'm probably not going to write it either, at least not in anything even vaguely resembling a timely manner - but I guess we'll see.)
