I probably shouldn’t reveal this, but yesterday I somehow managed to eradicate all content from my front page (LOL). I am laughing at it now but you may rest assured that at the time I was doing anything but. I don’t know what happened nor could I find any other way to fix things than deleting everything and starting over. A fresh start as WordPress calls it… After having spent the day creating the paperback versions of my books (which is nightmarish with MS Word), I had hoped to lounge the evening on the couch with my dogs, watching Netflix or reading but ended up struggling with this bloody platform instead.
Nonetheless, the day was productive. I can scarcely believe it but I have everything ready for the launching of Slavemarked! With the release date still a week away, that’s a slight miracle. Usually, I have a hundred and three things yet to fix with only hours to go before the deadline. The old me, the person I was before we bought this nearly hundred-years-old house and I started to write in earnest, would think one can always do tomorrow what one has no interest in doing today and would’ve flipped her lid utterly with this platform, removed the whole site, and probably never started over anywhere. She was explosive and impatient but the process of renovating an old house and writing books has molded her anew.
When you finish the fifth version of a script, thinking that finally, finally, it’s done just to realize the next time you eye it through that it’s hardly more than a raw sketch still you either give up and try your hands on something easier or become a person with unlimited patience and exceptional skills in deceiving themselves with the thought that one day all this hard work will pay off. For better or worse, I have become the latter.
Without further ado, I wish you guys a wonderful last week of February! This post was mainly meant to explain why I published the old posts anew. I had to remove them too to stop them from invading the new front page I was creating. Yeah, I know. Letting me use a computer unsupervised is not entirely wise. If I possessed any coding skills, I would already have wiped out the internet in its entirety without a clue of how I did it.
