Apparently I'm a spaz...

I just checked and found out that I'm a spaz. Apparently, I had written several posts last year, but neglected to push publish... I'm going to be at RadCon again in a few days.

I've been bedridden for the last year, or so. It's hard to be a productive writer when you can't sit up for very long. I did write 30,000 words in 24hours last year. That was interesting. Then I spent the next 2 weeks in bed, mostly asleep because I couldn't move.

 I also have so many things set as a draft and don't know why that happened. I will have to republish them.

Kayla's a mess, I know what I want to do, but every time I make any progress, my body shuts down, and then I forget what I'm doing and have to start again.

My plan this year is to attempt to set up a few web novels on this site. Since I don't know what I'm doing it might be a while. Essentially the plan is to turn Kayla into a web novel because I think that the format will suit the book better.

My biggest problem with all this is it's overwhelming. I have too many books, and everytime I start on something I get stuck in, I should be doing this instead. Then I end up not doing anything.


So, the goal is to not work too much, edit and put up what I have as I go, also to pick one thing even though I know I have 20 other projects almost done. I just need to work on one at a time.

I'm going to do some site maintenance, update my wips, and attempt to figure out how to upload pdfs and what not to the website. I think it might be easier if I were to move to a different host, but I don't think I want to fiddle around, so I'm just going to leave it alone for the time being.

So, those are the plans as of today, but I've been sitting up for too long, So, I'm going to go lay down, hope you are all having a wonderful day.
Adriane.

UPDATES

Well, it's been another year... lots of stuff has happened, I got a caregiver. My daughter had surgery for a tumor. She also went to public school,  and got bullied the whole year.  The school refused to do anything about it. 
I published a book, then found out my author name got stolen,  so I need a new name, or I'll just have to combine all my work,  not sure if I want to, or not.
I'm also going to be doing something new on the site, in a few months, if I can figure out how to do it properly.
Any whodo voodoo that's my update for now.

Been Away

I looked at my website the other day, and realized I've been away from it for over a year. I do have a really good reason. Being bedridden, lots of doctors, declining health over the last several years. It kinda fell to the back burner, while I just tried to maintain some kind of status quo. They've had me on meds for almost six months now. I'm stable, if I'm careful and don't over do things. But since I can do more, I tend to push myself, and backslide. I'm working on cover art and formatting for my old group, which I retired from this year. I'm still sad about it. Lost friends over it, sigh. But I can't get better and stress about maintaining an organization. Some good people took it over, so that's good.
I have another author name, I'll be putting out a book under in a month, or so. Fun, though I wrote the story last year and is only a novella, at least it is something out there. I'm keeping it separate from this one though, because they are really different genres.

On my other work.
I'm revising book one, of Kayla Blackstone.
I found some errors, after I read it since I needed to to get a better feel for rewriting book two. (which has been written once before), but needed a big overhaul, because of how book one was edited.
If you're familiar with my site, you know I have a million and one wips. (works in progress)
This year, as I'm able I'm going to try and work on the Blackstone series, because I feel like it's holding me back, and is kind of a road block, since I feel like I can't move forward with anything until I finish it.

As for content, I might try some of the writing in the void stuff again, kind of letting you know how I'm doing? Though I'm not sure. I'm still pretty sick, even though I'm in recovery.
I also watch a lot of Korean Dramas, and Anime and read Manhwa and Manga. So I'll probably do reviews on them, as well. I know I'm an author, but I haven't been able to work that much because it takes to much out of me. So that's what I do instead, (read, and watch dramas) and I find it interesting, so you guys might to.
Anyhow
I'm not sure what else to talk about at the moment I'll probably update various parts of the site over the next few weeks and start making posts and stuff I'm going to make a list of all the dramas I've seen and the  ones I started watching and stopped and try and remember why I stopped so that I can make posts about that. I'll have to look up the rules on posting images not sure how that stuff works.
anyhow have a great day
Adriane.

Wanted Manga Review

Wanted by Matsuri Hino
I really love this little book. I will need to research and find out if she did get her second volume, as of the moment though I think it's a stand alone.
It's about a young girl with the voice of an angel. Who loved a aristocratic boy, who was kidnapped by pirates, (think princess bride) who then goes in search of him. What she finds when she finally meets him again isn't what she expected.
It has serious potential for a second volume.  I liked the well thought out plots of the short stories in the volume. I might like to see a whole arc in one volume, but for what it is it's okay.
I liked how she didn't reintroduce the characters constantly. I like this author and I think I'll go looking for more of her stuff.
I might buy Wanted for my collection to read again. (Library book)
4 out of 5 stars
