So, it did indeed happen again. What happened you ask? Someone was overly negative of my writing work. Although it is something that I really did bring on to myself. The work was done in about an hour and I was so excited at having written something and so keen to post it that I forgot to proof read or edit it. I'm excitable and forgetful, it's not something you want to be when you're a writer. The response hurt, and even though it was one tiny drop in a veritable sea of praise and compliments, it struck me deep. I am proud to report though that I responded the same way I did to that Amazon review. I didn't let it keep me down. I watched something to cheer myself up, listened to the song I'm going to link to to pump myself up, and then started writing. After I made a playlist of epic orchestral and instrumental music that is. It's brilliant for writing to. I wrote two Immortal Space updates and I'm pleased with how things are going there too. So that means that this weekend there will definitely be a double update still. I think it'll be easier for me to say when they aren't happening now. I'm sad to report though that tomorrow's post was written during a moment of utter despair, and Wednesday's is a sad announcement. Though don't worry, it's NOT that I'm quitting blogging. It's just something minor really in the grand scheme of things.
Anyway, have a round up, and a song to listen to while you read.
I find this song to be perfect when someone puts you down and you intend to come back better than before.
Tuesday was just a random mishmash I came up with on the spot when I realised that I got my dentist appointment wrong. If I remember rightly there are a few work stories in there involving my surprisingly nice boss. I wonder if he read my blog and saw the nasty things I said about him. I hope not, because then I would have to apologise for them.
Wednesday was about the dentist appointment that happened on Tuesday and my feelings of sentimentality about the whole thing as I'm actually going to miss my dentist. He's also not going to be too pleased with me though because I lost the teeny tiny brush he gave me for between my teeth. Also as I've been a bit depressed this past week (more on that tomorrow) I haven't really been keeping up with brushing my teeth.
Thursday was my latest podcast. This one was about how I'm doing not as bad as previously thought on Amazon, more work stories and some things about the trip Jessica is currently on. She's going to spend a month living with her girlfriend to see how they mesh together, and there's a chance she might not move back over here. I initially reacted quite badly but after talking to her about it, came to some realisations. Mostly about how we'll still talk a lot during the week as her girlfriend has a full time job, and so Jessica is still going to be home alone a lot.
Friday, Saturday, and Sunday were all Immortal Space updates. Friday was a bonus chapter inspired by a comment from Fang basically saying something lacked detail. I responded with so much detail it could only be safely contained in an update of it's own. Saturday and Sunday brought us out of the flashback chapters and in to the real world. Today I set up the final arc and in a few months the journey will be over, and the journey of editing can begin.
Have a good week guys. I intend to do the best I can with mine. Yes, this basically equates to sitting on my chair playing video games, but sometimes that is the best I have to offer this world.
