    Do you have a story you NEED to see written?

    What if I told you a friend of mine is willing to do ANYTHING for money? What if you slid into his DMs with a special request?

    Writing is a perishable skill

    I don't remember if I've mentioned it in a blog previously, but I've been depressed this year. Like, actual depression, or at least I feel more certain that it's an actual thing than I have at any other point in my life. I've been more anxious and less happy most of the time since I graduated last year, moved to a new city all on my own, and then promptly got shut in alone for most of that time

THE BIRB SAGA CONTINUES · 11:22pm April 20th

HI HELLO YES IT IS ME I HAVE BEEN WRITING AGAIN

I promised someone in the comments last time that the wait between chapters wouldn't be as long now that I have free time. How wrong I was! But hey, at least I'm still writing and doing the thing. After all, someone has to write these birds!

Anyway, yes, a NEW chapter of Set Sail will be dropping tomorrow afternoon. It's a bit shorter this time, but still packed full of the essential horsebirds and catbirds you love and surely can't live without! Here's a little excerpt of the chapter, as a treat :)

“A toothbrush! My old one got blown up.”

I looked down at Ty with wide eyes, though I don’t think it should have surprised me so much. After all, he just showed up with a pretty serious wound on his shoulder, but he said it so casually. Like it was just another mundane part of his voyage and not the result of what I could only assume was a terrifying brush with death.

The griffon and other hippogriff in the room seemed as bewildered as I did. “You got it,” said Gallus after a moment of uneasy silence, turning toward the door.

“I’ll go with you!” Silverstream chirped, following along beside him.

The door closed, and then it was just me and Ty. I couldn’t help cracking a little smile as they left. “Poor thing,” I said quietly with a dry laugh.

“What was that, Di?” Ty tilted his head.

“Not you.” I nodded toward the door.

“Oh. So I’m not crazy. There was some tension there.”

“Yup. Griffon’s got it bad. Told me so himself.”

That perked Ty’s ears. “You talked to him?”

“Yeah. He came to me for help with Sassy a few nights ago and it came up.”

“What did you tell him?”

It should have been a simple answer, but it gave me pause. This conversation about me giving dating advice would make a natural ramp into what we had talked about before he set sail. The question I was still torn over and hadn’t expected to need an answer for at minimum a few more weeks, maybe months. But here he was, staring me in the face, no doubt hoping I’d have made up my mind.

I wasn’t ready for that conversation so soon—if ever.

That's right. We're getting Diamond as a viewpoint character at long last! I'm super excited about this one, can't wait to share the whole thing with you all tomorrow!
