Brexit Sinks Further Into the Ocean

Well, it has happened.

Boris Johnson is gone! He has resigned this morning. Theresa May is screwed. It looks like Brexit might be canceled. I was told no, but it’s just getting worse by the day. I love England as much as I love Japan, but they and the rest of the UK didn’t think this through. They are like a little kid who told their parent that they were running away, but didn’t pack any food, water, clothes, money, or even plan out a destination. I am just over here shaking my head. Maybe they will cancel Brexit or get back into the EU in some way. Who knows?

Meanwhile, you can…

Moving to New Stage in the Game

I have decided to go a more traditional route with my publishing. I have been self-publishing with ebooks. But, now I want to go the traditional way of publishing with Steel Prison. I’ve had people edit it many times, including my mom. I sent it through Nano in 2009. The current of the manuscript count is 48,827 words and 109 pages long. I feel that it could be a bit longer. What I am looking for is a professional developmental editor. I have started my search and made a list comparing prices and their selling comments. In the past, I have used beta readers. But since this is going the traditional way, I decided to step it up and go professional. So far, I contacted an editor I follow on Google+, five editors on Linkin, and one of the writers from a writer chatroom that I frequent gave me a link to a bunch of editors. I haven’t checked the website yet, but I will do it tomorrow. I know that professional editing is not cheap and I don’t have that kind of money at the moment. So, I will make comparisons and come down to the most reasonable price that I can try and scrape together.

I also want to look for a literary agent as well. Ideally, I want to find one before Christmas. I have a website to start my search. I will start to look on Independence Day. Wish me luck, everyone. While I look for an editor and an agent, you can…

Vacation and Wrapping Up in June

Later on this month, I will going on vacation for a week. Saturday and Sunday will not let me have internet access then. So, I am going to try something while I’m vacation. I will write the last two chapter of City Lounge: Paris volume three in a Word document and see if I can set the post on WordPress to post in the future. I will need to get the songs I need for them first. Plus, I will try to get one day online to make my post. Luckily, I won’t have that much to post that week. Just a couple of chapters and a preview. I might get to do some editing on Steel Prison while I’m there too. Plus, some other shorts I want to publish too.

Speaking of which here is a list of things that I am going to wrap up this month:

  • Gentleman’s Club (Volume Twenty-Four)
  • Two volumes of Dreamland
  • Reposting last season’s Tengoku.Chikyu.Jigoku
  • A couple of other previews
  • Volume Three of City Lounge: Paris
  • Season eight of Earth Child

Plus, I get to start season seven of my Wasteland Project on the last Monday of this month. I can’t wait. Until then…

Email address looks legit, but hold on there, Sally!

I did a little digging on Booktweep.  I came across an interesting article here: https://aprilhenry.livejournal.com/1158419.html

Here is what another site says about them: http://leegoldberg.com/booktweep-edition/

Plus, BookTweep’s site is not much to look at. I don’t have the money either. It just looks like a waste of money. Needless to say, deleted the email. Anyone ever encountered other promotion scams? Comment below, let me know. Also…

What Do I Want to Say?

Work’s been good.

I’ve had a productive weekend because of it.

I’ve been burning through many podcasts.

I just changed my 365 subscription for a cheaper version.

I am done with this week’s chapter of Suburban Island.

I can’t wait to post chapter three of Mad World.

I don’t have much to say tonight.

I am just waiting for March to be over,

And then I can go onto new projects

And wrap up Suburban Island.

And make announcements for the seventh season of the Wasteland Project.

<Sigh>

But for now…

I Think I Will Try Camp This Year

I have done Nanowrimo every year since 2009. I have never done the Camp version, though. Mainly because, I never know when it is. This year, I think I will try it. I know that it begins in April. I have an idea to write short horror stories for thirty days. I want to see if I can write condensed stories with one setting and one or two characters. I have a couple of plots in my head already. Wish me luck.

Speaking of Nanowrimo, I have plans for that too. All I can say is that it will labeled “What Fifty Shades of Grey is Supposed to Be”. I keep coming up with so many projects, but I can handle it. While I do that, you can…

The 3-0 is Coming for Me and I Don’t Know What to Do for Saturday

That’s right, folks. In six days, I will says goodbye to my 20’s. I don’t know what I’m doing Saturday. I want to spend the day with my mom and cake. Other than that, I don’t know what I’m doing this year. I wanted to go to Richmond, but that looks like a no-go.

I have new job now. I write articles for a women’s online magazine. I have been writing an article a day. I have an idea of what I’m doing tomorrow. My favorite so far was talking about female superheroes.

Is it bad that I want February to be over now? I am getting bored with this month. I can’t wait for March to come so that I can get onto newer projects. I will probably wrap up some things while I am at it. Suburban Island is going on nicely. I will wrap it up in April. Then, I will have present a one-shot story set in England in May to get into the Wasteland Project. Speaking of April, I will make an announcement about season seven on the main stories. But first, I have to get through the rest of February. On a happier note, I am going to see Black Panther tomorrow. I might do a review for it the next day. Oh, why is April so far away? For now…

Building Up Professional Connections

So, I decided to branch out a little bit. I dusted off my Linkedin profile and started a Google+ account. The reason is that I need more of stronger income. More money means that I can do more things to promote myself. I could get a professional editor, book cover designer, and make publish some physical copies of the books.

I created my Google+ account to attach to my profile at my job. I updated my Linkedin profile to try and get a new job. Both of which need some new connections. You can find me on Google+ here and Linkedin here. I look forward to hearing from you. While you do that…

Things I Have Learned from Hollywood in 2017

  1. If you can’t shoot 10-15% of your movie, abort the project! Abort and regroup.
  2. Four-year-olds do not always have the best ideas.
  3. It’s time to let crappy franchise die and stay dead.
  4. Enough with remaking old shows and anime/manga! Come up with something original for a change!
  5. Making a movie about emojis was never a good idea and it never will be.
  6. Do not edit your movie down for a PG-13 just so can make more movie if you intended your film to be rated R.
  7. Can we please give Michael Fassbender and Idris Elba better material to work with?

If you have any more you would like to add, add it to the comment section. While you’re at it…
