So I’m feeling like toasted ass and my body has basically told me to gfy, so I have been attempting to take it easy for the week. I’m thinking it’s walking pneumonia again, which is only mildly irritating instead of incapacitating. But needless to say, it’s annoying to the fact that I probably shouldn’t be performing my normal routines, including going out in public and exercising. Continue reading ODIN IS AFFLICTED – Weekly (ish) Summary Report
Welcome to the very first Weekly Summary Report of Sleepless Flame 2.0. Things…are happening. As far as I can tell. My body is currently recovering from the shock of organized scheduling, and I may have taken on too much too soon. What else is new?
In addition to the writing shenanigans, I am attempting another workout regiment while hoping not to feel like death the day after. So far it’s not going well. I took two days off so that I won’t feel like an open can of Surströmming that’s been left out in the sun for a month when I go to HEMA practice over the weekend.
I promise, I promise, I will have actual content shortly, but LOOKIT MY 2LB MASSIVE CYBERCHILD:
She’s a beast at 514 pages. I can’t even right now. I am in a glass case of emotion. My hands are shaking, and I am surprised I can type out a cohesive sentence. Though I am finding myself hitting backspace a lot more than normal. It’s been a real rollercoaster, but now I can say I have seen something to a close.
Welp. There it is. I actually published a deng book. Sleepless Flame is a thing that exists in reality. Despite being a weaver of words, I don’t exactly have a way to explain my thoughts and feelings. Immersive science fiction worlds, specifically cyberpunk, have always been an extremely important part of my life. It has literally kept me alive these years, and I am so happy to finally breathe mine into existence.
I’ve said before, I don’t have much to be proud of in my life, and I find it very difficult to finish projects. I get discouraged easily and give up. But after seven years, I finally saw something to the end. Huh.
First off I need to say LOOKIT WHAT THE FORMATTER DID!!! It makes it looks so real and I’M NOT CRYING IT’S RAINING ON MY FACE.
If you need your own books formatted, I HIGHLY recommend Serendipity Formats. She is so great to work with and very responsive. Continue reading WE ARE LIVE – Sleepless Flame Release on Amazon
Don’t mind me, I’m just ugly crying in front of Photoshop while everything is starting to come together and my grip on reality slips.
So here is finally, the cover for Sleepless Flame: Continue reading SLEEPLESS FLAME COVER REVEAL
Alright, I had to get that out of my system.
LOOK AT IT. LOOK AT MY GLORIOUS DUMPSTER FIRE. AND IT IS MINE.
SOMANYWRENCHES. ALL UP IN MY FACE.
This was an arduous week. I honestly didn’t expect to spend so much time on these edits. What was giving me the most difficulty was chapter three, which I have pretty much rewritten ENTIRELY. That being said, it is FINISHED, and I even like where it went, despite the agony it had caused.
I also kicked out another chapter, which only took me about two days, a new record for me Whee! It was the first encounter with Experimentalists, so lots of squishy metaphors were used. Continue reading Odin Learns to Dodge Wrenches
Since most people around me are out doing spooky things without me (I’M NOT BITTER) I thought I would at least write a quick little progress update on how I have been doin’ on the draft.
Gonna level with you, it’s real rough. Morale is low.
Turns out the first half of the book, which I *thought* was finished, sounds WORLDS different than the more recent second half. So I’ve started taking the chainsaw to it.
I apologize in advance for any and all typing errors that may occur. I reeeeally fucked my sleep schedule up this week, and I don’t think my brain has the ability to catch everything yet. (Energy drinks at midnight are always SMART CHOICES (TM)
I am in such high spirits this week, because SO MANY THINGS are clicking together. I promise I will not ruin this moment with casual cynicism and my impulse to wait for the other shoe to drop. THIS DOESN’T HAPPEN TO ME!
ON TO THE WORD COUNT:
