This is how you know it’s real:

I’m already six revs into Deadshifted. (Moonshifted had, oh, 15?) I’ve written 70k of it. I only like 35k of that. I have 16k of notes so far.

I write notes to myself in a huge note document. After awhile I get nervous I’ll miss things so I start CAPITALIZING THINGS THAT ARE IMPORTANT.

After that, I BOLD AND CAPITALIZE THINGS.

After that? BOLD AND CAPITALIZE AND ITALICIZE.

We have now broken through to an entirely new level of note taking fear for me — one not even reached prior, in Moonshifted’s 70k long note file — in that I am coding notes with BLUE and RED FONTS in addition to everything else. (Because half of my document is now is caps, heh.)

I don’t know if I should be proud of myself, or very, very, afraid.
