Ah, choosing names is so hard ... Can I really pair a three-syllable name with a two-syllable name and not have readers hate me? But then, if the character's spouse only has a two-syllable name, it doesn't seem too bad?
That dread when you find a half-written chapter that is part of an arc you finished and suddenly aren't sure anymore if you ever had that part in there and this is just the dregs or completely forgot about it ...
The new year has started and I can't help but begin with the big questions, like: Can I write half a novel in a day? Because I kind of feel like I might need to ... Ah, why is February so early in the year?!
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?

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*
Me: Ah, they don't need a name! They'll be gone soon enough ~
*10 chapters later*
Me: Maybe I should have given them a name Does it make sense to give them one now? Maybe they'll stay around for longer ...
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
