Spent some time applying ATL to Jaeger's GUI elements. This is the "Options" gear; hovering over it makes it move, clicking on it takes you to the Options menu. As you can see, the gear looks a bit wonky here because I wanted to spin it in two different directions, and I made some ugly, imperfect cuts in the image to do so.
I jotted down some ideas but didn't really do any writing. I did, however, speak to some friends about the love interests' characterization (which REALLY helps).
My biggest accomplishment today was treating myself to a nap.
Between taking care of a feisty new kitten and corresponding with a million people, I wore myself pretty thin! Good news, I spent some of my nap with the kitten and it calmed him down a lot. He no longer bites me for attention.
In regards to game design; in order to have an easier life, I simplified my code to have it spinning exclusively.... counterclockwise...?
Note to self, switch to clockwise.
We also added a fully functional "progress meter" to the upper right, and a "quicksave" function.
Added a character limit to renpy.input to ensure the player doesn't name themselves "ssfkjdsufnasiodsoinnfkjdsnfkjfnlkadnsoefnsongoku" and break my character name box.

Wrote about 5 pages of content today (and counting). I'm beginning to think my aspiration to do character expressions was a show of utter hubris. I'll need all the time I can get just to finish writing the story. OTL
