Readin' and Writin'
I was such a naughty boy today. With four kids in the house, they were relatively self-entertaining. I wrote 3,000 words in an hour. (Okay, 2,972 words). None of them were for Caprice.

Damn that Muse.

I also put eight more Kanji into my "learned, now memorize, then master" flashcard set. They're words like "myself," "little," "book," and "afterward," words that I've seen a lot. Remember my little rant about 誰 ("who")? Someone who knows a lot more about Japanese than I do pointed out that the 2,230 standard Kanji are for reading a newspaper, not a story. Since I'm reading more fiction than nonfiction, I'm going to encounter a lot more kanji than those in the "standard teaching suite," and I should just get used to using Edict. I'm also going to have to find a good onomatopoeia dictionary, since today I encountered ペキペキ (peki-peki) meaning, uh, "the sound made when spanking someone playfully."

Heh. After posting this, I wrote down 400 words to outline the next five chapters. Grief.
