Well now things are pretty weird. so I’ll bullet point this and try to expand on it later this week or maybe this weekend.
Son’s appointment at pulmonary went well, a suspicious ‘lump’ they saw in his chest xray a year and a half ago is now gone. No more of those appointments.
A ball python who had escaped her tub about a month and a half ago was found, rushed to vet after determining she has a respiratory infection. She apparently ate something she shouldn’t have during her adventures and…. well…
I find this absolutely fascinating. She has meds to try to help get her guts moving, and antibiotics to combat the respiratory infection. I’ll be keeping a close eye on her. I thought she was a gonner, but she’s alive and despite her odd snacking I’m ecstatic about this.
I actually scribbled out some E1 and E2 stuff but I’ll have to transcribe that tomorrow.
Overall today was an adventure. A great big adventure. But I am glad it’s nearly over.
It seems the internet ate it last night when I posted it. -.-
Kids are nearing the last day of school. Today I tweaked a few words on the latest rewrite chapter of E1 and watched a lot of ‘Worlds Worst disasters’ on Netflix. Weird *I* watched TV [insert ominous music]. And I ran teens around. Because, of course I did, that’s what mom does, right? Mom’s taxi at your service! bleh.
Tweaking with words in E1, unclunkifying that chapter. I need to sit down and really saturate brain with the chapter so I can straighten it out. But for some reason brain is doing the butterfly thing again. This is very annoying.
Nothing like breaking your website first thing in the morning LOL. But it got fixed, thanks to the wonderful tech support at my web host, verve. If you’re looking for someone to host your website, these folks are great. Anyways, I’ve had a relaxing day for the most part. Hope y’all have also.
Actually I’ve been doing editing on The Fallen as my brain is still bouncy and sieve like. Not sure why.
Mom’s taxi. That sums up the day and the week. I’m tired and grumpy and ready to call it a night. Did have a fun conversation of ‘Oh I lived there!’ With a couple folks in a writer chat. Geekery, all I can say. LOL
Started and restarted the flash fiction only to start something that is going to go longer than 1000 words. Printed out the short story I wrote for the FM anthology Blame It On The Dog. The flash-that-will-not-flash is set in the same universe. I realized that that short, Autumn Storm never got put up as a single title. I think this weekend I’ll dust off my cover-making skills and see if I can do a quick cover that looks halfway decent and put it up for sale sometime niext week. I meant to do that when it came out, in 2014, but then we had a series of family crisis’s crop up.
I’ve drifted to a different social media platform called MeWe which is (imo) ten times better (and safer) that FB. In doing so I’ve found a few writer groups that are very active and it’s kicked my brain into gear.
This is a good thing. I think I was stagnant. New people, new writers to talk to seems to be helping.
The patreon is still there, but I haven’t touched it in a while, I’m still on the fence about yanking it down. I keep thinking I need to but… but… I dunno leaving it up, yanking it down, neither option seems to be the right answer.
My wattpad is still active too. I was thinking about moving things over it to, I’ve got most of E1 on it and that seems to be what has captured my imagination right now.
I’ve got a lot of plans but I’m tackling things one thing at a time instead of my usual multitasking till I burn method.
Anyways, I hope all y’all are doing well. Take it easy all
I’ve been sick, dealing with sick kids and hubs and I come back to BS.
So I see that Patreon dropped a big FU bomb to the people supporting creators under the guise of helping the creators. I don’t like the idea of my supporters, the few I have, being exploited.
I’m still looking into it, seeing as pretty much everyone supporting me is at the $1 level, I want to look into how this will affect you.
I suspect there is going to be a mass exodus of creators from the patreon. I have been wondering what to do about this patreon page, and I think I’ve just had the decision made for me.
