Work, Website, and Wattpad

A couple weeks or so ago I got a call from my dayjob that I’m currently on sabbatical/furlough from. I went nearly to slightly crazy at the end because I don’t do well with “normal” schedules and “holding down a steady job” or something. Of course add writing into it which is basically a second job and I don’t have much time for Things.

Anyway, the call. They were ready for me to return after just a month and a half. About maybe a week later another call set the return date for Tuesday. Monday they called and said it’s not happening. At least, I think that’s what they said, I was kind of asleep when they called, so if it’s not then I probably won’t be going back at all!

But so yeah, I spent a week or so expecting to return and then didn’t, so I got a little scuzzled. I got Slubes released and then spent the next several days not doing much in preparation for suddenly doing a lot, and then I wasn’t doing a lot. Now I’ve gotten my brain realigned and I’m doing more writing.

Actually, wait, that’s not true. I totally forgot, I spent a lot of time on Sunday editing the website. Thursday it might have been I did some editing throughout, I even updated the quotes section with a few quotes (I rarely remember to write down what I say). Then I went to town rewriting all the species pages, improving it and making it more consistent and better. By the end I was figgin exhausted. Somehow editing the website wears me out. I think it might have something to do with the fact that the site editor loads badly and acts slow and makes my computer sad? I don’t know, it’s weird.

So the last thing I wanted to mention today is Wattpad. I’ve had it mentioned one or two times and read something on there sometime ago, and I’m going to take a closer look at it soon. Early next week expect a post on what I’ll be doing. I will either skip on putting Slubes there entirely or just put the old prog version there in its entirety at once and move on to Darmenzi every week until it catches up to now. I feel that since Darmenzi is the sequel the first should be there, but the prog Slubes just has so much outdated and not-good that it almost seems counterproductive. Maybe I coul

Seriously, the WordPress post editor is like glitching out on me, it kept switching the focus from the post to the list of tags. I don’t know, I still liked the old editor better. Anyway, maybe I could just put the beginning sample of the final product of Slubes already available here on Wattpad. I’ll consider options.


Suddenly update!

I have been super busy the last couple months, but all through the busy I’ve been editing Slubes, making for double busy. The first busy is starting to wind down, though, and I’m about 80% through with this edit of Slubes, after which I do one final read-through and then boom it’s time to get cracking on putting it through the process of making it a book. This I hope to work on in January and February, so I might have an announcement come then.

Speaking of those two months, my dayjobwork will continue until at least the end of January most likely. At that point I’m going to try and actually be “furloughed” aka “we don’t have enough work for you” aka “i wanna vacation”. At that point I can try to be more active around here! Who knows what the future could bring. Chocolate-covered celery? Maybe!
