Monthly accounting is done, had to write a Gulp plugin to automate handling Google's report but glad I got it. Not so glad on the lack of sales though.

Playing single parent for the weekend again and really need to work on this commission. I want these off my plate because I want to be able to focus on my own writing.

Finished a second round of hauling rocks. It was raining and EDM was spraying everything with a hose, so only got a dozen or so. When we moved in six years ago, this was beautiful, now a thistle patch.

I suck at gardening and the boys aren't old enough for those chores.

Saw Deadpool and loved it. The queer characters were awesome. Domino was just as awesome.

Pre-Edit/Alpha Readers
Line Edited/Beta Readers
Done (I don't like Final because there are also corrections)

My brain keeps wanting to say:


And I've completed the fifth round edits for Second-Hand Dresses. fedran.com/second-hand-dresses I think I'm done until I can get enough money from Patreon to get an editor.

There are two features I really want Mastodon to have: arbitrary reactions because star/favorite/like doesn't quite have the breadth of Discord/Slack/Github's responses. And Markdown (italic, code, bold, blockquote).

misskey.xyz (from Gar's email) looks cool except my Japanese is absolutely terrible. But it has reactions...
