Lots done

In my newsletter I shared the cover for Under Empty Stars. I’ll add it to this post on Monday, or tomorrow if I keep writing during the weekend. I sorta want to. Another great day for words. Super happy about that.

I received Daughter of the Red Planet and released it for sale via CreateSpace. It’ll take a week for the stores like Amazon and Barnes and Noble to feature it though.

Just over halfway done with the read through of Ancient Scars before I send it off to Jeanie for her first thoughts. Wiped out so now I gots yard work to deal with.

Word count I started the day with: 3,133

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 …

Grow up but please... don't change (they are in your past for a reason)

We all need to grow up. Eventually that happens whether we realize it or not. But what's even more important isn't us going from child to adult, but as adult's we grow as people.
It's always interesting to me how people can change so much; or not. How some are just completely content being the same as they have always been, rather than to consciously grow as an individual person.
Even more interesting is how a person can outgrow people around them. Where you realize that even though that person's situation has changed: maybe they got married, or had children, moved, etc., but yet they haven't changed. Their circumstances and environment changed. They may have even matured more than before. But again, they haven't changed. At. All.
They were once so close to you. They were a friend/partner/love interest/family member and together you both made a pair. Something happens and you spend a while apart and when you come back, something is different.
Which is when you…

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.
