Good enough

So today I’ll be fixing the menu and the pages on this site. In case you’ve tried to use one of those things in the past two days and got an error. It will be fixed today.

Didn’t get as many words as I would have liked, but it’s good enough. I was busy going back and forth on (love the site!). I wanted to find ideas for planets and names because as I was writing, a lot of what I wrote depended on the planet I was describing. Since I had new thoughts in mind, I couldn’t get out of it simply by doing a short {note – research} in my writing.

Well, I could’ve but because a lot of the current story information was based on the specifics of said specific planet, I needed at least a few details to keep me going. Otherwise when I came back to that place in editing, there would be so few details I would find myself lost as to what I was doing, and the actual story would be missing.

So I took the stance of risking word count to make sure I knew enough about a new planet that I could include some information and later just fill it in or change it. Having something there to guide me was better than going in blind later on.

Yesterday while I was moving this site, I had a reader contact me about Hope of the FutureThey asked about it being in paperback. I wanted to include a note here that I would be working on that by the end of this week. Should be available in paperback by the end of the month. I’ll let my newsletter subscribers know when it’s available on CreateSpace. That will be my next project. So thank you to Steven for bringing that to my attention.

How do I add more Chapters in the CreateSpace Templates with Word?

How do you make more Chapters when you're using the templates from CreateSpace?
I've noticed a lot of people having problems with the CreateSpace templates and when I went to look for this question, I couldn't find much information on it, plus it was late and I didn't care to sift through all the information. 
So when I finally figured it out on my own, I thought I would go ahead and let you know how to. But with screenshots! I would try and make it as CLEAR as I could, and the process as SIMPLE as I could. 
To start, I will say that there isn't really anything wrong with CS Templates... when you understand how to use them, and you figure out the fixes to do the changes you need. They are Templates. They aren't meant to be the complete answer to the needs for formatting a book. I changed a lot of the texts, and the customized "styles" that the person who made the template, had in there. To fit my needs for this particular book I'm working on. In …

Starting to get answers

We’re finally getting answers. And as typical, the way the answers are being given in the story, isn’t the way I had it planned in my head. Or not planned, but maybe I should say, how I expected it to go. I expected the information to come in a much different way, different person as well.Well, surprise surprise, the story didn’t go the way it was supposed to go. Random thought that crosses the mind: gotta do my newsletter today, lol. So I’ll cut this a bit shorter than I wanted to. Not much to discuss anyway. I have a lot of things I have to do today. Outside and inside. Hoping I hit my ten pages of edits today, but if I don’t, since I got 15 yesterday, I know I’ll be okay.

How would I describe the series?

Okay, updated my books page to include the information for Under Empty Starsas well as the information for when Ancient Scars is releasing, and the other novels. Still have to make a cover for the short story I finished as well as a page, and finish typing up the story – tentative title for that one is Bittersweet Reality. Also the other shorts I have waiting. The Riverand the Into the Midstcompilation. Also updated my sidebar for the blog finally. Been the same format for a while so it needed one.(Sidenote: arch of my right foot is itching like crazy so I’m scooching around in the chair trying to itch it through my boot – not easy! haha)I was thinking about something just a bit ago too. What is the best way to describe The Guardian of Life series for those who haven’t seen me talking about it? The best way to describe The Guardian of Life series is a bit Mother Earth meets Mad Max meets Dune meets Total Recall meets dare I have the audacity to put it in the same category Star Wars. O…
