The week started off with my gut trying to kill me. Spent a whole night, mostly puking mu guts out and unable to sleep. Had to take Monday off and couldn't even enjoy the break, lol. Slept a bit during the day, though. I did finish the first draft of the Curse of Souls as… Continue reading Some health scares and other things
Why are we still in February? lol. I feel like time isn't passing at all. Flame of a Dragon's Oath and Soul of Magic are with betas and it looks as if Soul of Magic might need a full rewrite. Ah well, time enough for that in the future, I guess. Memories of Forgotten Waves… Continue reading Still in February?
I am rather glad I started anti depressants, because my state of mind is much better. Not everything is hunky dory, of course, but there is hope now. I have increased the number of my WIPs to 48, and I think I'll stop there. It's a nice even number, just shy of fifty, and I'm… Continue reading One week or so later
This week has been different. I started anti depressants, and already I can feel the change. There is a bit of sleepiness, vagueness, inability to focus, and some slight physical issues as well, but for the first time in so long, life doesn't seem like an endless well of despair. I posted the final chapter… Continue reading Something new?
2021 doesn't seem all that different from 2020. In fact it might even be worse, I think. Odd numbered years had never been good for me. I've lost most of the people I loved in such years. My dad in 2007, my brother in law in 2009, my son in 2019, so I'm naturally wary… Continue reading Another Random Ramble
I have submitted Elitist Supremacy to this competition called ISFAB a few days ago, and my book has already been read by the judge it was allotted to, and now I'm in tenterhooks wondering if they liked it or not. I have been setting very moderate goals for each day on working days, so there's… Continue reading New books and some thoughts
Not yet, I know. I have three more hours to go here, and I can't wait! Not necessarily because I think 2021 is going to magically turn things around, but hopefully it will be better than 2020. With a vaccine already out, there is reason for hope at least. I have started two new WIPs… Continue reading Happy New Year
Merry Christmas to everyone who celebrates it, and happy holidays to everyone who doesn't. The pandemic has fucked up our whole year, but hopefully next year will be better. The vaccine is here and perhaps we will all be able to gain some semblance of normalcy in our lives. My week has been work and… Continue reading Happy Holidays
I finished editing Bleeding Gold and also the first draft of Memories of Forgotten Waves. I know it needs a lot of work, but at least the first draft is done now. I also started the first round of edits on Colliding Forces and The Soul of Magic. Colliding Forces don't need as much work,… Continue reading More Editing and a Video Trailer
Ever since the idea that I should go ahead with publishing Bleeding Gold next year, I've been rewriting some of the earlier parts, adding new content. My first drafts are often summarised versions of my stories, and I add content during the subsequent edit passes. I've added 8k words to Bleeding Gold already. I've a… Continue reading Vampires and Mermen
