brains!

Someone tell my brain it’s only allowed to work on one project at a time. It keeps insisting on coming of with more and more side-projects, and it’s making it very difficult to get things done… I guess it’d be cool if it could at least learn to prioritize, but, no, it simply believes in trying to do all the projects at once.

So far I have to finish at least the first book of ‘Ravenblood,’ and then I also have more side-projects cropping up… ‘Natural Selection’ keeps taking my attention, which is cool (sort’of, but part of my brain wants to do more with that too, which simply can’t be), but now a couple other things I was playing with are insisting that I play with them more, and I simply don’t have that kind of time. I did a BS excerpt using my detective character, a character I have had pretty much no chance to make use of yet, but that little bit got my head running on trying to figure a way to finish it–it wasn’t even meant to be finished, it was completely meant to be only BS.

More importantly, if I do come up with anymore side projects, it has to be at least something that could be possibly submitted to something other than simply posted here, which seems to be the issue with a lot of them so far. ‘Natural Selection’ is pretty much stuck here, I see no way around that, which is cool, as I said, gives me a web-comic writer sort of feel I guess (which also hints at something that my brain keeps telling me I should do with NS–thank god my drawing skills are badly out of practice–although I did at least try to draw Bahb once). But, yea, I could always use money as a possible motivator, and something that gets me out there a bit more than this blog and its cute little stories…

So, damn you, voices, one at a time, and wait your turn!

PS: I’ll probably be posting ‘Natural Selection’ soon, and… dear’god, if the voices don’t shut’up, also a ending and/or re-write to ‘Mist’…

I’ve been working on links all day, and now I’m completely stare-crazy… but I think I have everything listed that should be. Every author I’ve ever come across, by either person, books, or whatever (if you see a name you don’t know, then by-god, click on it and see what they have to offer, they might be your next favorite author); Every publisher I’ve ever come across by books, submission, etc; Every useful tool a writer could need from writers’ social site for exchanging ideas and beta reading, to agent and publisher searches, to everything else I could think of; plus I threw in some of my references I’ve gathered for my own writing (some were actually for other authors’ works, I just held on to them in-case I ever found my own need for them–I haven’t had a need for Victorian slang yet, but I am so determined to try a steampunk story at least once). And I have web-comics and stories, most are free, a couple are pay-to-read, but all are worth the reads. And I have the start of a Games section that I will maybe add to (or remove–I’m undecided)

Now, I can’t say I’m sticking with the present format of the links because I just don’t know if I like how they’re laid out (it just seems so… lengthy). At some point I may make attempts at trying to clean them up some how to make them less overwhelming, but as it is, I have no idea how, so they stay (open for suggestions).

Although, all links should hopefully be active as of now, but for future reference, if anyone finds any that are dead, or not quite going where they should, please let me know. If anyone has a site, or knows of one that might interest me, feel free to make suggestions, and I’ll check it out (this does not permit you to spam me, please try to keep any suggestions relevant).

If you come across any site in my lists that ask you to pay for anything, note that I am not in anyway telling you to (except for the web comics and stories–authors have mouths to feed… thousands of them). Everything provides some amount of useful information for free (some of them have free articles, others have their own FB page that gives you everything), so please do not pay for anything you don’t need to. I am a strict believer in Yog’s Law, and you should be to.

Under construction

Let it be known, for anyone visiting, you will be seeing this page under constant construction for a bit. It’s obviously a new blog page still, and I’m the type that likes to play with stuff. If you were around since yesterday, you may have noticed that I’m building link lists that will help promote authors and web comics, and help people find publishers and agents, etc. right now, I’m pretty much just spewing it out as it is from my bookmark folder, but I at least hope to try to organize it better at some point (I’m not entirely sure how right now, but I’m open to suggestions). I may be moving ‘Natural Selection‘ and all other stories to their own section separate from the blog, but don’t know when yet (i’m busy with other things, plus I only just figured out that I actually can make other sections–that’s way better than just putting everything all in one place).

Also, the more I look around at other people’s blogs on here, the more I develop a love/hate relationship with the look of mine (kinda like it, but it’s just not fully me yet), so, at some point I will be tweaking the over all look of this thing too (don’t know when though, I’m still feeling around this place, trying to figure out what WordPress lets us do).

So, basically, overall, don’t get too comfortable with any detail of the layout of this thing… and I will be adding a lot more to my links later (I’m barely half way through–I’ve collected links on every author and publisher of everything I’ve ever read, plus everyone I’ve ever met via cons, etc, so I’m bound to have something that will be useful to someone trying to get their stories out).
