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?

Writing Exercise #1

I’m going to try something here:

You have to give food to this strange altar. Each item of food represents the seven deadly sins. What do you put on the altar?

Christmas Will be Coming

Both Christmas trees are up. (My grandmother’s and mine.) I will go Christmas shopping tomorrow. (A big part of it, anyway.) I still have a huge load to work on. My Netflix list is shrinking again. I will be done with this series called Dad of Light  by Thursday. I might finish another one before 2017 is over.

Speaking of which, I will try to get onto editing Steel Prison over the holidays. I am just about done with chapter two last time I checked. I am so close, but yet so far away. I am aiming to have Steel Prison published by next year. I have gotten back into playing Sims again. I missed this game so much. It feels so good to be playing again.

I am still waiting for 2017 to be over so that I can start having a better year in 2018. While I do that, you can…

Is 2017 Over Yet?

I can’t wait for this year to be over. Sadly, we have three more days and a whole month left. I am so bored, to be honest. I feel like I am stuck. I’m still writing, but I haven’t put out anything to publish this year. My job’s getting slow and the edits for Steel Prison aren’t on a schedule. Most of my efforts were spent fixing my web site. (Thanks Photobucket for ruining everything! Not!)

I don’t know. Maybe I just need something new. Maybe 2018 will be better. I do need to make some changes. And I will try as hard as I can. Maybe find something new in the process. For now, I have to get through the rest of this year while you…

Noizchild and Office 365 are Getting Divorced (Maybe)

Yeah, you read that right. Office 365 and I might be breaking up. I’ve tried everything to get it to work, but it just failed on me. If you have to fight with a writing program to keep it from crashing every time you save, it’s time to wait for the new model. (Word 2019 is coming out next year.)

For now, I am using OpenOffice. It’s just like Word without some of the fancy features. I am coping with it and I like it. If I can figure out how to get it to the save point of where I typed and how to show my word count at the bottom, it would be perfect. For now, I will wait and you can…

Progress Update

Here is a little update on my progress with my work:

  • Chapter one of Steel Prison edited!
  • Still fixing all of the pictures and music on my web site.
  • Still waiting for Webs to fix its file manager problem so that I can finish moving my site back.
  • Finishing up some projects.
  • Started a new story.
  • Still writing my WIP’s.
  • Will resume City Lounge shortly. (I’m about to wrap up book two of London and start book two of New York).

That’s it for now. Meanwhile, you can…

I Need Some Recomendations

I am feeling lazy again with my watching things. I did start Inside No. 9 last week and the first episode was quite interesting. I might go back to it when I’m not so lazy. Fixing the pictures on my site is going well. It’s still going to take me a long time to change those pictures from Photobucket to Imgur, but the Chrome extension, Fix Embedded Photobucket Images, just made it a little bit easier for me.

Meanwhile, I’m waiting for American Horror Story: Cult to start up in two weeks. In the meantime, I am looking for something new to latch onto to help break my laziness and get me back into the rhythm of watching my backlogs again. Anybody have any ideas?

What to Say This Week?

No news tonight,

The city’s quiet,

Steel Prison‘s still in limbo,

(I need to ask when my mother will get around to it),

There’s nothing for me to rant about at the moment,

Life is going well,

I haven’t cooked anything lately.

<Sigh>

But it’s Monday and I have to post something.

Oh well, I guess I’ll just make up something off the top of my head.

I sit down and begin to type.

I am a Bit Stuck

I have a bit of a problem. No, I already fixed the Photobucket one. I’m talking about the one for the main site.

I started out at Webs, but then it started to have problems. So, I moved to Neocities. That was great for a while, but it started to conflict with Photobucket in Chrome and Firefox. So, I went back to Webs. That was going fine until my files stopped loading and I couldn’t get the upload function to work. And they haven’t done anything to fix it. I can’t even reach them and they aren’t responding to my various complaints. I’m thinking that it’s time to move back to Neocities or find another server if the problems aren’t sorted. Anyone know of web servers that are free and will let me upload files? I’m open for suggestions. For now…

Not Much to Say

I couldn’t really think about more to write tonight. I have a couple of projects coming up. Work is going really well lately. My cable is gone, but I will get it back when I make enough money. I started watching Misfits and season two of Animals. Other than that, that’s about it. I didn’t really plan this week’s post out. Maybe next week will be better, but for now…
