Achievement Unlocked

A 10-post collection

LAUNCH!

We have liftoff! Inter-Mission is officially on the interwebs and now what do I do?

...make episode 6 of course.

Well, yes, but I also have to tell everyone it exists, and I have also done that bit. If you check the menu, you'll see it there in all caps, right under "Buy my books!"

I have two followers already. This is kind of intense. Fingers crossed, this gets someone to capital-N Notice me (senpai)... maybe get a deal somehow.

I dunno.

I need to deep-dive research the whole Twitter Pitch thing, what the hashtags are, and whether that's an option when trawling for agents. I should at least try to sell them Adapting before I surrender it to Smashwords and the aether.

...which will mean I need to edit all the other books that have been mouldering by the wayside and no betas got back to me and AUGH! Life sucks.

I'm pondering putting more chapters of unedited stuff up on my Wordpress, but I have too many other things to rant about yet. Which reminds me. I needs must punch up another poll.

Here it is. Vote now. Vote often.

With good fortune, I should be able to finish up with the posts for the Kitty Kondo(tm), today. Just in time for the weekend so that Beloved and I can assemble the thing. Maybe.

We have a defunct garden bed to clear out, corners to mark, concrete to pour... It seems and feels a little on the overwhelming side? Like... we have a WEEK to do this. ONE. WEEK.

We gotta get a lot of shit done, this weekend.

...i'm scared...

Onwards!

I recorded another story this morning, just in case the five I have are too short for episode three. I started putting ep three together and I should have that in the can by tomorrow afternoon.

What did not happen was the 1K words I had pln'd. It was a very busy day. I got a lot of the stuff on my shopping list [forgot Chaos' cupcakes] but I didn't have a lot of energy for writing after that.

Did get all

W00t!

I just finished episode 2 of Inter-Mission and my next battle is recording the next set of stories for the masses.

Somewhere out there is a hyper-specific gremlin who will appreciate what I'm doing here. I hope they have lots of gremlin friends.

Speaking as a self-confessed hyper-specific gremlin - I feel you, pal. Been there, done that, been scoffed at by the "normals"... 'druther be a gremlin.

Anyway... This week spurs a four-week journey in which I detail my personal experiences

Achievement Unlocked?

Things done so far:

[X] Supplies acquired

[X] New version of my Windoze simulator

[X] Unfucked the translation macro that turns a single *.md file into several other files

[X] Begun fixing the actual file

There's three hundred and sixty-five stories, each of which has to be put on a new page, have the title separated from the content, scoured for footnotes, bookmarked and linked if there are.

I'm doing ten at a time and that does NOT make progress any faster.

Done, Done, Done, Done, Done, Done...

Today's title comes from this lovely tune which suits me to a T today. I am DONE.

I finished Clockwork Souls yesterday, and I just now got it converted to assorted formats for interested beta readers.

Loyal readers of this particular blog can read/comment on the docx version here if they so choose.

I've enabled commenting in all formats in the Clockwork Souls folder on my Google drive.

Not that I expect much action from this. But I will be looking

Cheevs?

Sometime last week, I actually contributed to a fanfic. And that means that my $5 Patrons would be treated to a new WIP. If I had any $5 Patrons.

But I'm still putting it up because having stuff for my Patrons is important.

I've begun work on Shot #8 for SESP, and I might just have time to animate some of it all, this weekend. Powers know I've been more than a little slack about that. I have features and shots to

Cheevs?

Made the bread. Everything about it was unexpected. It looks and tastes a lot like bran bread, which means I will need a little something-something to make it not taste like bran bread. Or at least make the brannishness be tolerable.

The loaf we have is still moist, so that's good. The cold loaf does not taste like dry cardboard, at least.

Experiments will begin either today or tomorrow. I have a feeling I could turn this "bread" into a cake-like object

Cheevs!

I'm getting stuff done. Hooray. Just... not all the stuff I want to do. C'est la vie, I guess. So yeah, I haven't arted.

But I did manage to clean most of the kitchen countertop. The only space left is the space covered by stuff that's due and overdue for getting washed.

I cleared out the drainer so that I can wash more stuff as time goes by.

I cooked a nice Leftovers breakfast, featuring last night's vegetables and four eggs that

A Winner is...

The 7-loop connector bars (250 of them!) from Milky Way 888. They were one of the last to get going, and I had to extend the allowance time lest my order get cancelled. And yet, they are the first ones to arrive in my hot little hands.

A moment of silence for the ziplock baggie that tried valiantly, but could not contain the mighty force of two hundred and fifty brass findings during the rigorous journey between there an here. It did

Achievement Unlocked!

Despite going to bed early, and the subsequent early wake-up [approximately 2AM]. Despite the subsequent early morning fanfic session and needing a napnap at a quarter to four in the morning... I managed to trundle myself around the block, starting at ten to five.

And I made it all the way back home.

Without.

Needing.

My puffer.

I think I'm ready for a double-block walk. Which used to be my upper limit before I had my toenail cut in half.

Let's see
