Celty is Still in the Shop

I called the shop today and they said that my battery to my second laptop isn’t in yet. They said that the battery will be coming in in a few days. Meanwhile, I’m getting Pinky’s battery to charge properly. I decided to try and run it without the battery. It might the charge chord that is the problem. I won’t worry about it now though because of Pinky’s age. (Getting an older laptop fixed does not seem to be worth the lack of money on me at the moment.) The down side is that I can’t really play Sims on Pinky. The game will start up and play for a few minutes, but then will close down without warning. I don’t know what is causing it. I’m not sure if it’s a mod I updated or if I didn’t copy all of the files from OneDrive. I won’t be certain until I get Celty back and update the mods on that file. God, I really wish I had laptop #2 back. But, I know it will be worth it. I won’t have to worry about the charging stopping and starting on me repeatedly, or Celty going to sleep on me because the battery got too low, or Celty shutting down on me because the battery got too low. Can’t have that. I have work to do.

Speaking work, on Thursday we will going back to Berlin for the City Lounge. I kind of forgot where I was, but I will jump right back into it. I guess I will just keep on writing and waiting. While I do that, you can…

Celty Went to the Shop

I finally sucked it up. Today, I took Celty (Laptop #2) into the shop. Turns out, it’s not the charging port. But, I need a new battery. They are ordering for me. I don’t know how long it will be in the shop. For the time being, I using Pinky to do work. I had to update my browsers, Chrome and Firefox, and get some of my files onto Pinky. After that, I got right to work. I got my chapters done for the day.

On another note, I first Camp a day early. I think I will write to add one more page just before I validate it. Tomorrow, I get to start on my seventh Durarara fic, Caged Wonderland, in the Wonderland series. I am really excited!

Despite it not charging when plugged up, Pinky runs just like it did for the clock battery died. I can’t wait to get Celty back. Until then…

Going Nowhere, but Planning

Still no editor yet. I’m still giving some advice on what to do. Meanwhile, I am planning like always. I have a new Durarara fic coming up next week. It’s all part of the Wasteland Project like it always is. It will be titled Caged Wonderland. I can’t wait to get started. Camp Nano Part Two is winding down. (I won’t finish the book this year, but I will add more when camp rolls around again.) I have been ahead a day lately. Most of Book I will be finished by the thirty-first. I might go back and add more details to it next year. I will have to see.

I think Celty (laptop #2) needs to have the battery port replaced. It will charge normally at first, but then it will stop and start charging repeatedly. I have tried updating Celty. I tried defragging it. I even reset the internal battery and cleaned the port. Still doing the same thing. At first, I thought it was either battery or the charge chord. I called the Acer tech support and they said it’s the fixed. I watch a video on how to fix and battery port and realized I’m not skilled enough to do that. The most I have done for a laptop is to change Pinky’s (laptop #1) keyboard. So, I might have to take it to the shop and get it fixed. That is going to cost money and I am broke. I will at least give the computer shop a call and talk to them. That should be free, right?

Speaking of Pinky, that laptop is having problems too. When I plug it up, it is plugged, but it doesn’t charge. When I boot it up, it says that something is wrong with AC adapter. I think I might need a new charge chord for that one. My mom suggests it’s the internal battery. I don’t know if I will have that fixed or not. It is an old laptop, but it still works. I will have to see what I feel like doing. While I do that, you can…

The Search is Still Going

I decided to take my search in a different way. I already know that developmental editing will not be cheap. I decided to try and see what the reasonable price would be for a developmental editor. I asked around at all of the writing communities that I am part of. I have seen some good tips. Some are saying that publishing houses have editors in them. They commented that Steel Prison isn’t long enough to be a novel. (Hence why I am going to a developmental editor in the first place.) They all agree that it’s really expensive. A couple of them offer some sites to check out for future reference. I bookmarked them and I will go back read them.

I need to go back to looking for an agent again. I’m trying hard to curve my laziness. It’s working, but it needs to go faster. I will keep working at it. What do you think? Do you have any ideas for a reasonable price for a developmental editor? Leaves your comments in the comment section of this post. While you’re at it…

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…

Counting Down and Planning

May is coming to an end in a few days. Within two weeks, it will be June. That means new projects are coming. I can’t wait to start on season seven of my Wasteland Project. The Earth Child season finale will be coming up on the seventh. Volume three of City Lounge: Paris will wrap up next month too. But don’t worry, I’ll start volume three of City Lounge: Berlin. Writing isn’t the only thing I am looking forward to either.

I will get to finish the live action version of Erased on Netflix. (I only have two episodes left.) Then, I’m going to watch From This Corner of the World next. Then, it’s off to Hulu to watch some episodes of Moone Boy. Before that, I will be done with season one of Some Girls. So much stuff to watch, including the 2009 movie, Moon.

On top of that, I will vacation in June at some point. Can you believe that we’re about halfway through 2018? Time keeps running away from us. I’m just happy to be getting some stuff done.

Oh and Photobucket freed all of the pictures. They are under new management now. I guess they realized that they screwed up with charged $399 for embedding pictures and now they are trying to woo them back. That leaves me with one thing: Should I just leave all of the pictures on my website I didn’t convert to Imgur or should I keep moving them to Imgur like I have been doing since last year? Either way, I still have to fix the music and other small glitches on my site. Oh boy, it’s going to take me a while. I was insane in my younger years with the posting, but it’s well worth it. While I ponder this dilemma, you can…

Last Day of Camp

I’m on the last story in the collection. I am up to 48,989 words. I will be finished by today. May will bring new projects into the works. I will work on a short story that I will post on the nineteenth. There will be other short stories and the usual annual projects for May.

It will be nice to not have so much to work with. May brings me closer to work on the Wasteland Project again and I get to work on new things in May. I am about to try and get caught up on my Netflix list. Maybe Hulu too. I could have Patient X beta read and try to go back to editing Steel Prison again. So much to do in thirty-one days. Where do I even start? I’ll sort it out. I might even finish some things in May. I will have to see. I do know if I will do camp in July because I don’t know what to write. Oh and we will go back to Paris in the City Lounge in May. Look forward to all of that. For now…

Status Report: Camp is Winding Down

There are seven days left in camp. The Patient X story keeps getting longer, but I will try to wrap it up by tomorrow or Wednesday. Then, I will try to finish those last two stories in the collection to meet my 50,000 word count. Suburban Island will end in two days. I got scouted for a publishing collection. I think I have the story in mind that I want to publish. I will look over it when I finish Patient X.

Next month, I am working on a short story related to the Wasteland project. I will post it on Inkitt on May 19th. Plus, there are some other stories to finish. I am counting down to June so that I can work on season seven on of the Wasteland Project. Right now, I will see how much I get done from the rest of the week because I have jury duty.  (Fun, right?) I am confident about finishing Patient X and Suburban Island this week and on time. For now…

Publishing Plans in the Making

I am in the middle of Camp Nanowrimo here. (I’m half way through the month.) I am working on a story called Patient X from the collection. I am enjoying how this is turning out so far. I am playing with the idea of publishing it when I get it all polished up and published on Amazon.

What is it about? It’s about a hitman in a mental hospital who’s under a curse of where every time he kills someone, he inherits the worst of their traits. He’s talking to his therapist about how he ended up this way. I keep adding more days to write out this story. I’m writing it so much that I am worried that I won’t get enough time to write the last two stories in the collection. Stick around for that. While you wait…

Suburban Island: Will be over in two weeks

Earth Child: Started and this week will be chapter two of season six
