The thing that I thought my nanowrimo story would be about resolved itself weeks ago, but I've somehow managed to spin my wheels for another 30,000 words without anything of significance happening. I think I picked this skill up from slice of life anime


Update: some plot is attempting to creep back in at the eleventh hour, but I only have like 700 words left so it won't have enough space to resolve itself. I'll be god damned if I let anything meaningful happen in MY story
