What is up guys and ladies!
Be back on next week!
Sequestered myself to finish the book. I realize it's been a month, but I've finished Vol. 1 of LoS book one. I've even got a decent way ending. It's still got closure but I gotta get y'all wanting to get the next book. almost thirty thousand words in vol. 1. Had to do a re-write, which with my ocd is basically changing every little detail but it just makes me stress out. You should have seen my work in high school. No scratch outs or mess ups because i never turned in work unless it was perfect. And my damn Biology AP teacher still wanted me to get a word processor for my reports because my handwriting was 'bad'... Thanks Mr. Hanson.
Probably shouldn't say his name but it probably made me more sub-conscious and I got defensive and started working harder about making my work as perfect as possible.
Whatevs, you be you, bro.
So anyway, yeah, I'm done with Vol. 1, and not allowing myself literally ANYMORE changes to the manuscript. I won't even look at it beyond converting to PDF, which if you'll remember from my previous update I wasn't able to do because the license stopped w...look I'm at a loss...I have no idea what is wrong. never fear, LOS is still happening and becoming a book series.
I also just finished the final chapter of the entire series, and the final chapter of the entire first book.
Holy crap I did not even plan this to happen it just....sort of did, and now, well I just started crying like a lil bitch... >.> like woooooowwwwwwww....just wow. I didn't expect this to happen. I just realized how it would all turn out. I know my own series, but... like, I didn't think it would end up this way when certain OCs were first "born" so to speak. I mean damn. Martin ain't got shit on me, but when anyone can die... that death has to mean something don't just kill them for the sake of death.
I should say that my journals aren't indicative of my literature quality. I just type out these journals as thoughts come to me, in the submission box, I don't plan them out in advance. Just what I think I need to let you guys and ladies know. So kind of like my literature.
I found a way to circumvent the licensing issues. See, until the conversion process finishes the system still thinks I have a working license. If I try to make more than one doc file into a PDF Adobe starts bitching about me not having a licence for Acro Pro...which I don't. It's leftover software from my Aunt's brother's home business.
Suckers.... Ok really, all I have to do is turn off the computer when the pdf is done, because after Word converts it, it opens the new pdf in acrobat, and that's when Acorbat complains about the lack of license. I turn it off, convert the next document, and as long as I do it one at a time....yaaaaay free PDF conversion. Don't steal, kids. Or steal kids. It's wrong.
So many commas out of place in my manuscript. I batch delete sections of text (ctrl - v is my bestie; mostly just put the leftover in notepad).
I don't bother editing my journal entries properly because most people don't read this shit anyway
Well, bye for now guys and ladies. Be back next week and I'll publish LoS Volume 1 and have detailed info for you.
Got a carnival to go to!
