pipang

Why my stories never get written

So two years ago while writing Kaiei's adventures at the Southern Ocean I added a footnote to myself that one enchanted evening Kaiei will see Pipang across a crowded room and swoon in delight. Because Kaiei At The S.O. got stuck, last year I wrote a thousand or so words exploring the slightly comic fallout of Kaiei swooning in delight over Pipang. This year because Kaiei At The S.O. is still stuck I wrote several hundred words of the sequel to it, where Goukou and Goushou are snarking at each other in a series of letters over a diplomatic move of Goukou's that is distinctly not to either of his brothers' advantage.
