Work was really chill and fun today (my second day!) because I was on closing shift and it’s a weekday so hardly anyone came in. I like all the people I’ve been working with. There was fog on the river tonight and it was beautiful, and I met a gorgeous guy on the light rail home (he was sort of staring so I grinned at him figuring that he’d either get embarrassed and stop looking or come say hi) and gave him my number.
(Sometimes I have moments where I’m like “Why is it only ever dudes that hit on me?” and then I realize that there’s probably more straight people than queer people in the world and also I’m presenting pretty understated femme currently and not “visibly queer” which shouldn’t matter but it does.)
I’m also 1,100 words behind on my NaNo, but I’ve decided that I don’t give a damn as long as I’m writing at least 300 words a day (which is about how long it takes me to get a really good groove going) because I don’t want to burn myself out on writing again and I’d rather be able to keep working on this project without hating it than have 50,000 words at the end of the month. I’m also rediscovering my writing voice in other ways, and it’s amazing, and I don’t want to lose it again.
