Wednesday Wrap-Up - 8/30/17

Another Wednesday, another wrap-up.

Today, I'm going to talk about chapter titles.  Old School Evil doesn't have them right now, but I've been thinking for a while that it needs them.  And not just generic titles either, I'm planning to pick them out of episode titles from all the various cartoons I've watched.  I've got a list growing of all the titles of He-Man, She-Ra, Transformers, Go-Bots, etc. and I think I can find plenty of potential titles there.

I haven't started my final edit for OSE 1 yet, but I did get the latest draft all set up in Scrivener.  Scrivener is a fantastic word processor that lets you do all sorts of things that Word just isn't up to snuff with.  Sure, I use Word at work for all my editing, but Scrivener's ability to save snapshots of previous drafts and to let you drag and drop sections makes editing a breeze.  If I could have any program installed on my work computer, it would be that.  And possible Blender.  But then I'd never get any work done.

So now the only thing left to do is start that last draft, and that's going to be a beast.  I need to change my sleep schedule so I can get up earlier and do it before work, but my sleep has been so bad lately, I barely wake up to get to work.  I need to start making some major changes if I'm going to complete this, and as close as I am to publishing, I'd be a fool for not trying them.  Step 1.  Quit browsing Reddit when I go to bed.  This is going to be harder than I thought.

  1. I think it would be a fun pucking uo the title from your favourite cartoons. I am hoping to see something new and creative in the form of titles from you.
