Book Pimping, Planning, and Some Bitterness

I finally finished re-formatting my books. Everything is up and ready for sell. Now, I can go on and publish new material. I already have a new book in mind. Anyone up for volume three of Hapless Cupid? Of course you are! Lucky for you, I will be editing volume three and publish it. (Yay!) Also, I am planning to fix up the web site. I am thinking about separating my fanfics from my original works. There might be three different sections on the site: fanfics, published work, and non-published work. Plus, there might be better playlists and working music. This will taker longer to do the work than this blog did. Wish me luck…

And now for some disappointment. Today, Comedy Central has decided to cancel The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore. I am not amused by this. They canceled it due to low ratings. I say, that is crap and get out the petitions. The final episode will air this Thursday.

Now it’s time for some book pimping…

Book #1:

SinsofWomenCover

Title: Sins of Women

Summary: Despite the success and good fortune that Madis Kairis has been blessed with, he still has one glaring problem in his life. All of his relationships with women have taken a turn for the worst in one way or another. One tragic scandal leads Madis to confide his and their “sins” to a therapist in an attempt to win back his wife. To better understand himself and the women in his life, Madis compares everyone to tarot cards in the major arcana. Starting with himself as the Fool in the deck, he tries to unravel where he went wrong with his relationships.

Blogging and Book Re-Release

So last week, I merged my blog from Blogger to this blog. One problem: the tags on Blogger ended up being categories on here. So the next day, I had the “fun” task of separating the categories and tags. Let me tell you something: it sucked! So time-consuming, but I got it done. Now, I have to go through and organize the categories again, edit and tag the posts that came from Blogger, and delete duplicate posts. This isn’t going to be fun, but I have to do it to look professional.

Meanwhile, I will be re-formatting Sins of Women tonight. I don’t know when I will re-release it yet. After this, I will only have Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked left to re-format and re-released. Tomorrow, I will attempt to do the blog stuff and happily start on the Durarara section of my Wasteland Project. Plus, I will watch said anime on Tuesdays and Wednesdays when I write each halo. (I call the chapters for that section “halos”.) So much to do, but I can manage it. While you wait, you can…

Focus Came Back, but Now I Feel Lazy

Well, I am getting back on task at least. But now, I have another little problem with my writing. I feel lazy– not just with writing, but it my need for escape. I am still looking for a job and I am still on so much inspiration and ideas for writing. However, this week I will attempt to break my own runt.

I am still looking for a job again. I created a profile on Linkedin to help increase my chances. (I’m already looking on Indeed.com and Talent Zoo.)  Hopefully, I will get something to get me moving again. I enjoyed having a job in the short time that I had one. Plus with more money, I could get better replacements for Pinky and proper editor. Let’s hope I can do that really soon.

As for writing, I will try to act on some ideas and look for new inspiration for my work. Yesterday, I discovered a YouTube channel called Creepy Plays. Sweet! I now have something to work with just in time for the Wasteland Project starting next Monday. Maybe this week, I will look through my folders of inspirations I have on Chrome. I also have my music on Audiosplitter. (I just learned that there are more albums in the City Lounge series. This should be delightful to make a new playlist or two. My original City Lounge playlist was too big and it was a pain to arrange it due to the size. Plus, there is another playlist that I have to fix up on Audiosplitter.)

In any case, wish me luck on my “quest” and…

I was Off-Focus Last Week

Last week, I could not focus on my writing. I have no idea what happened. I either found myself bored with the draft or I was too busy. I had two birthdays to celebrate last week. (My grandfather and my mother’s). My work wasn’t as great as I wanted it to be. Somehow, the distractions will probably carry over into this week too if I am not careful. Still, I will try to stay on task and get them done on time. More

Working and Waiting

I finally have a job! I’m doing contract work for resume writing. I still need a full-time job, but it’s a start. For now, I am a happy camper.

Now, I have four more weeks until I start season five of Wasteland 2011. Plus, I still have re-format my short e-books. Other than that, I don’t really have much else this week. My Memorial Day was good. I watched anime and played Sims 4. Plus, I binge listened to an Australian reality show about searches in airports while my mother watched it on Netflix. I am going to go back and play more Sims 4. While I do that, you can…

I am Just about There

I got something finished today. It’s not my Fullmetal Alchemist fic, but it’s just about as old. It’s just a dumb little comic I had been sitting on for a long time. I couldn’t decide how long I wanted to make it at first. Initially, I wanted to make it twenty-six chapters long. Then I realized I wouldn’t have enough ideas to make that happen. (My plot bunny farm is already overflowing. I need to take out those little creatures first before I could come up with things.) I was stuck between thirteen chapters and twenty. Finally, someone suggested that I made it thirteen and here we are. I already had the first twelve down. After a bit of a touch-up on the section that it on and actually writing out the chapter, I am done with that little comic!

I will finish Anaconda on Wednesday. You can bank on that. It will be finished at last! I already picking out the music for the second to last chapter! I am going to finish it this week! Next, I will resume another old series that I have been sitting for quite some time now. Like I said, I need to clean out the plot bunny farm this year. My task list is helping me do that.

As for my published work, today I am cleaning up my bio for Canojo Koi. Next, I will fix the format for Sleeper on Wednesday. Today and Wednesday will be cleaning up day. I’m already counting down to it. However, I am still looking for a full-time job. At least now I know what I am looking for. I just need to apply and hopefully I will get two interviews with the same employer. The last time I had an interview, it went well, but they are still holding my resume in case they have something open for me.

Other than that, I will look for a beta reader for my Hetalia fanfics just to get them cleaned up just in time for the Wasteland Project’s new season coming up on June 27th. I hope that I can catch somebody. I am tired of reading typos and cursing myself for it. I think I will wrap up now. Have a good week everyone.

The End is Coming, Dave

This month, I will finish my Fullmetal Alchemist fanfic, Anaconda. I will begin the end tomorrow. I have spent too long working on this. After that, I will work on an original series that I have put off for too long.

Even so, I am in need of something new to write. This is what happens when you have so many ideas screaming, “Write me out!” The plot bunny farm is overflowing again. Besides getting out ideas that I have been sitting on, I still need a full-time job. In other news, the new season of D.Gray-Man is starting June 25th in Japan. Just in time for me to begin season five of my Wasteland 2011 project. (Speaking of which, I promise I will get back to the Durarara anime, both seasons when I resume the project. Scout’s honor!) Either way, wish me luck and…

It’s Time to Wrap Some Things Up

There comes a time in a writer/author’s career that they have to let some stories go. I have come to that point with two of my stories. I started The Jetty and Anaconda back in 2007. Anaconda, my Fullmetal Alchemist fanfic, has gone on too long. I have been working on this for nine years. Nine years. NINE YEARS! Yeah, it’s time that I let it go already. I will be ending it next month. As for The Jetty, an original story of mine, I will be ending that on Monday after fifteen chapters. (Hey, I am bouncing back and forth between projects all the time. Sue me!)

Anyway, I will be re-releasing volume one of Hapless Cupid on Monday. Look for to that, my friends. I am just about done reformatting everything under the Noizchild name. Next up? The books under the Canojo Koi name, of course! Then I can get back to editing and publishing my work again. Until then…

I Finally Got Snow– Sort Of!

Today, I got snow and ice. I’m not mad. I’m actually happy. (Now, if only it would stick on the ground and turn the outside into a pretty winter wonderland.) Still, I have work to do.

I downloaded and installed Sigil earlier this week. Today, I am editing the format of Distorted Lullaby. I’ll take me a while to get off my ass and start editing the book. But, I know that I can do it. Anyway, Sigil caught a couple of words that I misspelled in the book and the html formatting was off in a couple of place. When I will republish it, I have no idea. I give I will clean the formatting all of my works before I publish them.

I think I like Sigil. Valentine’s Day is coming up and I can’t wait to start editing my Yami no Matsuei fic, Pure Morning, to make it sexier. This time, I have someone who knows what they are doing with the edits. So that should be fun. For now, I will test out Sigil to turn my work up to eleven.

I feel like I should do something else, but I don’t exactly know what. Oh well, it’ll come to me. For now, I will take a rest. I think Sims 4 is calling me again tonight.

Two Down and Now What?

My Card Captor Sakura fic and my fic poem is finished. I have downloaded  Sigli two days ago. I just need to figure out what book I am editing first. I still need to find a full-time job. I will come up with a recipe to post for tomorrow. I still want my pretty winter wonderland. It’s coming, do not crush my hopes. Do not crush my hopes!

I seem to be falling a bit behind ever since Saturday. I hope I can get back my rhythm tonight/tomorrow. I can’t wait to get my big posting for Valentine’s Day. I feel like I need a new outlet.

I think I will wrap up for tonight, so…
