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…

Camp is Running!

So, I have the first two stories down for Camp. I had to play catch-up. (It’s kind of hard to stay focused when you work from home too.) But, the stories are done. I have ideas for about four or five more. I struggled with the title for a little bit. I was surprised that my cabin filled up the way it did. But, it’s going good so far.

Here is the information about my project:

Title: Cerberus’ Carnage (It might change again if I can come up with something better.)

Genre: Horror/Supernatural

Type: Short stories

Goal: 50,000 words

Summary: This is just a collection of horror stories with one to two characters in one setting.

I will let everyone know about the progress next one. For now…

Happy 4th Everyone and Presenting… Love Addict!

Happy Independence Day! How was your Fourth? Mine was okay. I ate food, but I didn’t really get to see fireworks. Oh well, maybe next year. Still, I got work done. Oh and saw the first new episode of D.Gray-Man Hallow. I love it! The animation and the voice actors are different. Someone complained about them, but I told them that artists often change style because they need to grow in their craft and they probably couldn’t get the same cast to do the voice roles. I thought the voices fit the characters. Overall, I can’t wait to see the next episode next week. Now, I have more thing to do.

Time for some book pimping.

I also cleaned out the vent of my laptop. I had no idea that I let dust build up that badly for close to seven years now. It was so gross too. Eww! Now, Pinky can breathe much better and not overheat on me when I play Sims 4. Yay!
I only have five more books left to re-format and re-publish. Soon, I will go back to publishing new books. The next book up is Weekender. Expect to see that some time this month or the next. For now…

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

Some Bad News and Some Good News

I Will Work ASAP

One of the edits came back for me. Hapless Cupid Volume Two will be out in October. I am thinking about publishing on the first week of October. I am thinking between the fifth and seventh at best. Also, hopefully I will have Ain’t No Rest for the Wicked by next month as well. I want to get out a couple of short stories out and published next month as well. Maybe, I might have another book, Fall Semester, coming out between October and November.

Here’s hoping that October will be just as productive as August was.

Don’t forget to submit work for LGBT Scream this month at noizchild@yahoo.com. There are only two days later. I look forward to hearing from you.

Good Help is Hard to Find Sometimes

I ask for beta readers/editors to help me clean up my work to make it presentable for the masses to read. Lately, I have been hearing nothing. So far, I’m waiting for feedback on the last ten chapters of a fanfic, another whole fanfic, and two stories that I intend of publishing. At least, I have heard back from the complete fanfic one. I got a sample of editing the prologue and an essay on writing a sex scene. I will start work on that Friday. Everything else, I will keep trying to contact them until I get results. <sigh> Why is good help so hard to find sometimes?

Meanwhile, I’m still struggling with trying to find a good music site that lets me make up for the dead Grooveback.com. There are two versions of Grooveback now– Grooveshark.li and Grooveshark.im. Neither aren’t that great. (Li doesn’t have an embed function and Im basically just takes songs from Soundcloud and uses it as their own. Bleh.) As of right now, I am settling of Spotify and soundcloud for individual songs and thinking about trying MySpace for playlists on a certain fic. Not exactly how I wanted this, but it’s going to have to do until I get something better. Darn you, record labels and your fingers greedy little paws!

Even so, I must soldier on.
