I just finished the first draft of A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp:

          First round of the mss clocked at 80K words.
          
          I've got that "I finished something, and it's big" feeling!

I'm glad you like it! :D

American Catseye has been updated!
          
          I’m still catching up from my flu and pinkeye downtime. A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp will be updated tomorrow. (:

I only have pinkeye in one eye.
          
          I think my immune system has succeeded. Twice in a row.
          
          I don't want it to get a turkey.
          
          I'm catching up on my updates tomorrow!—I've been going stir-crazy with this bed-ridden nonsense!—but I managed to get through the first sessions of the new spring semester courses.
          
          I was diligent with my hand-washing. Maybe people think I'm a germaphobe now. I'm okay with this misconception, if it means protecting the masses from pinkeye.
          
          Did you know pinkeye comes in viral and bacterial forms? Every time I tell a friend or family member, they think I'm on antibiotics. It's a virus, though. Like the flu, all I can do is hydrate and sleep.

I thought I kicked the flu's butt, until it moved into my face. 
          
          Now I have pinkeye in both eyes. 
          
          Updates will be delayed again this week... But like last week, I'll still update Catseye and Shapeshifter!—I just need more time, since I have less hours with open eyes.

I kicked the flu’s butt and caught up with updates for American Catseye and A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp.
          
          A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp only has one chapter left! I’m really excited about finishing it.

I missed American Catseye’s update yesterday. I’ll be missing A Shapeshifter’s update tomorrow. I have the flu. Sleeping lots. So many cat dreams.

A new chapter for A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp is now available!—only two more chapters left to go (1/3 and 1/10).
          
          Last update, I said I'd share the 9-hour game jam my husband and I are making, based on American Catseye...and I thought we'd be done by Thursday. But we took a little extra time and published the game today! 
          
          You can play it for free here:

          Cattack: An Absolute Cattastrophe is about Buttercup sending missiles to the Bermuda Triangle to prevent a super-secret Illuminati meeting. We chose Buttercup because she's the only character who's in American Catseye and A Shapeshifter, Cyborg, & Wisp; so she seemed like a good representative for our game jam.
          
          The extra day was well-spent. We decided to add a wall tile to give the room depth, and we still made it in time for the game jam's cut-off. I'm 99% sure we aren't going to win—this was our first game jam, after all!—but it was a joy to participate, and I can't wait to see the other games people made.
          
          Speaking of awesome stories other people are making, I'm reading The Next Pharoah right now, and I can't recommend it enough:

Merry Christmas!
          
          I missed the Monday update for American Catseye, since my family gets together on the Eve; but I edited the draft for the next chapter under the tree, and it’s available to read now!
          
          A few days ago, I also published a free Christmas video game that’s playable in browsers: 
          https://kourtnie.itch.io/mana-xmas 
          
          My husband and I are participating in a 9-hour game jam to release a second game loosely based on American Catseye. Since we can only spend 9 hours making it, it will not be as aesthetically pleasing as Mana’s Christmas, but it’ll help others discover American Catseye, which will be super cool! We’ll share it on Thursday.
          
          Hope you have happy holidays!
