So, anyone who knows me long enough knows I love video games and if someone would pay me a decent salary to do it every day of my life, I would never want a different job ever. My wife knows I love video games. She doesn’t always quite get it. But she understands it’s something that I love and really love talking about.
So tonight we sat at Walmart for almost 6 hours to get the SNES mini that just released. I wasn’t planning on getting it anytime soon and I didn’t want to ask her to stand in line again after standing outside for the NES mini several times and getting sick to get it for me. But then I got home and she told me we were going to Walmart.
I love my wife. She doesn’t always get me but she loves me and will stand in line for 6 hours to make my day. She’s pretty amazing. And because of her I can play the OG Mario Kart and Zelda: A Link to the Past.
Y’all need to get a wife like mine, just saying.
I should be in a dreamworld already but I’m super irritated at people in general right now. Everyone on Facebook is at war over the NFL and the protests and there’s so much confusion and false information out there that it shames me to live in this time.
Not only do we have the media putting a twist on the news, we now have every Joe on Facebook stating an opinion that passes through 5 people and suddenly becomes truth. But that isn’t tye biggest issue.
There’s so much hate coming from different sides of the matter. Whatever happened to not agreeing snd moving on with your life. Posting a billion Facebook posts about your opinion wil more than likely not do shit. And it makes you seem like an asshole.
So, stop looking like an ass and worry about real issues in the world like the issues faced by people in Texas, Florida, and now Puerto Rico.
Since I already work for Amazon, I figure I would publish through them, too. This is my first crack at self-publishing, even though I have been attempting for years to do it. Not going to lie, kind of just winging it and seeing how it all works while in the process. Probably not the best idea but if I sit around and think too hard on everything, I will do what I have done many times in the past and give up before I even actually try.
So, the plan is to start off with something not so big. I have a couple novels and series I want to eventually publish but none of those are anywhere near ready. I do have a short story collection that I made for a class in college some years ago. I have since then added to the collection and made it more presentable for publishing. Not completely done with the editing process but getting there.
I’m using a program from Amazon called Kindle Create, which basically takes your document and makes it e-format ready. My document did not convert perfectly, so I had to go through and make adjustments but getting it ready as far as appearance was the easy part. Now I have the struggle of proofreading a billion times, figuring out what my title is going to be, and if I dare even think about designing a cool cover for it.
So, that is what I am off to work on right now. If anyone has an idea for the title, shoot it my way. My collection is a mixture of stories about love, overcoming obstacles, acceptance, and family. Also, any tips or advice would be great as well.
Here’s an opportunity to help the people of Puerto Rico who’ve been thrown into a terrible crisis by Hurricane Maria. The devastation brought by this natural disaster is unprecedented. Every bit of help is vitally important. By sheer coincidence, the House of Puerto Rico had their International Cottages lawn program today in Balboa Park. A […]
