Oct the Third
Four hours, 3,500 words. Fuckin’ killin’ ‘em.
Albey’s going on a little expedition, Journal, to see what might be lurking in the forest outside the little island he’s found himself stranded on. He’s not really stranded, of course, as the island is… islanded, I guess, by a river that flows in a circle, but he feels plenty stranded. I’m trying to channel how I felt when I first moved back to Logger’s Pond into Albey’s “living alone in the woods” experience, and I think I’m doing pretty well. Of course I would think that, considering how I’m writing the book, but still. I should be enjoying it. If I thought my work was trash then I wouldn’t want to keep doing it.
That’s not to say I’m intentionally misleading myself, of course, but… y’know. Love your work and it won’t be work, it’ll just be life. Speaking of life, I have one to go live now that my writing for the day is done. Don’t worry, I’ll tell Tori you said hi. And Jason, and Denny, and that old croon who sometimes (but so, so very rarely) works in the library at the same time as Tori, too. Not Harry though, but not out of animosity. Dude’s been mighty avoidant lately. I’m trying to not let it hurt my fragile feelings.
Trying and succeeding, ‘cause Harry’s a punk-ass busta’, and that’s just what it is.

Say thankya, Journal. ‘Preciate ya. Long days and pleasant nights~
