Fit in here, in my palm, in my shadow, don’t be bigger than my idea of you, don’t be more beautiful than I can accept, don’t be more human than I am willing to allow you to be and be quiet, you’re too loud, even your un-belonging is loud. Quiet your dreams, your voice, your hair, quiet your skin, quiet your displacement, quiet your longing, your colour, quiet your walk, your eyes. Who said you could look at me like that? Who said you could exist without permission? Why are you even here? Why aren’t you shrinking? I think of you often. You walk into a room and the temperature changes. I lean in and almost recognise you as human.
nov 3 i continued with the dominique rewrite, now onto chapter six and trying to get rid of some unnecessary sexual tension and fillery crap - and replacing it with some subpar descriptions of the underground and how cold and angry everybody is
nov 4 i rewrote some more dominique, now dominique and lysander have less sexual tension and more awkward conversation, which i think is moarrr realistic. nothing much really happens though
nov 5 yeah i didn’t write anything
nov 6 ibid

nov 1 i wrote some of the newest chapter of sunshine, and it came out better and felt easier than i had expected - i have steered away a little from the first person perspective and it felt good to get into someone else’s head, y’know
nov 2 i wrote some more sunshine (about four hundred words) and rewrote a bit of dominique, chapter six (i don’t know whether this counts towards my daily goal but eh). i still don’t think i’m getting her grief quite right yet
