I don't understand Amazon. If I publish a short story that I've previously uploaded on SH and Tapas, I gotta reassure them it's mine. Unless I take out the chapter headlines and add a glossary because that apparently makes it distinctive enough? o.O
My To-Do List is really just "Finish writing these 12 stories", "Finish editing these 10 stories", "Translate these 5 stories". Shit, I gotta actually finish up that stuff sometime soon. Why did I think again it was a good idea to have two accounts?
Looking for a photo of a woman for a cover for once.
Me: searching for "woman kitchen blond" in order of importance
Search results: naked woman on horse, woman in lingerie in the kitchen, woman topless in the kitchen, woman with naked feet on kitchen counter

I've self-published more than 20 books and short stories but the last time went so badly thanks to some Amazon bot that I got anxiety at the thought of doing it again today It's about darn time I woman up though and get back into publishing
*new side character appears*

Just realized I'm an idiot: I abbreviate titles for my recordings cause I'm lazy. When I scrolled through them, I suddenly saw some I couldn't identify. What's TDN? And what's TDK? Well, turns out they are the same. I just can't type and now 'night' apparently begins with 'K' And nope, no knights in there. Just a crazy magician
"I thought this story had a system!"
Title: *doesn't mention a system*
Cover: *doesn't show anything system-related*
Synopsis: *doesn't include any references to systems, tasks, or similar*
First chapter: *doesn't mention a system*
Whatever made you think there was a system involved?
Got an email from somebody asking whether they could send me an article about a businesses topic for my website. I'm tried to respond "You know I write gay porn, don't you?" just for the fun of it but it's probably spam anyway ... or somebody who really has no idea what they're doing
