Go check out “A Glimmer of Perspective” now!
This is about our companions. Of the secrets they keep. Of the duties they perform. Of the work they do every day as we rush around in our lives, unaware of the hidden things in our own homes.
We can only see the direct result of their labors. But occasionally, our companions will allow us a glimmer into the true nature of the world.
This is one such glimmer.
I’m happy to announce that “A Glimmer of Perspective” is now available for sale on Kindle.
I’ve edited the story to death, killed myself trying to come up with the right cover and gotten a million opinions, but it’s finally done.
I’m currently selling it for just $0.99, so hopefully I’ll do pretty well. The only trick is to get eyes on the story. That’s going to be the serious challenge. However, my Facebook writing group (OC Writers) has been very supportive and two of them were nice enough to actually post very positive reviews. And no, I didn’t ask them to do it. They did it on their own.
I’ve had pretty good comments on this story overall. I posted the original draft on deviantArt some years ago. The story is completely different now, but still, those comments helped encourage me to do this in the end. I won’t bore you with them though, at least not right now.
In the aftermath, I’m just tired. I worked for hours to get this just right on Saturday afternoon…but there are other things going on…
Things…aren’t going well for me right now. I’m not foolish enough to be totally honest and open about them. I’m sure I’ve caused serious problems doing that in the past, as I’ve said before. But I’m having a lot of trouble at work. And I’ve had a serious increase in panic attacks lately.
I don’t know if it’s about Caitlyn’s MRI tomorrow, dealing with leave issues with work, all the work I’ve put into Glimmer, Caitlyn generally being a bit of a lunatic lately or what. It seems like I’m under attack from all sides right now. I was hoping it would lessen when Glimmer was done, but it hasn’t. If anything, Glimmer was a good distraction for the serious problems I have right now.
I can’t say more. But I’ll ask for whatever prayers/good thoughts/what-have-you you’re willing to send my way.
*Sigh* I actually tried to do some writing this week, but I got less than 200 words done. Terrible, just terrible. I can’t believe it. All of this stress has sent me into serious issues with my writing. I don’t know what project to work on. Should it be “The Last Dreamer” or should I delve back into the Dreamscape universe? I don’t know…and I won’t be able to decide today.
I don’t know…I might just have to write when I can this month. It’s going to be hell with all of Caitlyn’s medical appointments, combined with the OB/GYN appointments for Laura. Plus I’m going to need to see a few doctors this month.
I have no idea how I’m going to keep it together.
There’s a lot of other things going on too. I’m going to try and get Glimmer up on iBooks, Kodo and Nook. And I’m also considering doing some of my older stories. However, those stories will need to be done under a pen name. And while you might try and figure them out, I doubt you’ll be able to do it. 😛
Also, because there’s like maybe 3 of you.
But hopefully, I have a few more folks coming in because of this story.
Anyway, it’s time for the weekly videos, right?
First we have this GORGEOUS song, based off “Love is in Bloom.” I beg you just to try and listen to it. Yes, it is Pony-related, but you need to move past that and just enjoy this stunning music.
Now this, this is just fun. I love the visual style of this video. It’s just plain old COOL. I wish I could come up with effects like this.
That’s it for this week folks.
Next week, I’ll see about posting the “Journey to Equestria” retrospective for something different.
Good luck and have fun!
