Upcoming Plans March 2017

This Month's Goals

I Want to Read:

  • Books!

I Want to Write:

  • Words!

Yes, that’s not actually very descriptive, I know. I would apologise, but I’m not actually sorry. This month will see me return to school! Well, to a Coursera course, actually, but it’ll be with the express intent to learn and start working towards a career change. This’ll start off as just a refresher to get used to long-distance learning and to get a general idea of how I feel about formally studying the field and we’ll see how it goes after that. I’ll also be looking at job applications (again) and setting up and prepping Patreon for more intense changes and a return to what I’d originally envisioned.

I’d also kind of like to find the time to revisit my existing books and experiment with ways to add trigger warnings. In print, it strikes me as easy enough to cover, but ebooks have always given me a spot of trouble.

So I’m planning to do quite a few behind-the-scenes things! And we’ll see how it all goes. I do aim to get at least one book read (for the AceBookClub!) and to work on DemiPrincess again, though. Small steps. Small progress. But progress all the same.

  1. I don’t think I’ve ever actually looked at your blog and omg it’s so pretty!!! Can I ask what career change/field you’re considering? because I’m nosy? 🙂 and for ebooks, if it’s a specific word or phrase, I can use technology magic to omit those sections or replace them with something like butterflies or w/e. I have changed books with triggering Names before for friends, so like, Tom/Thomas/Tommy became Reg/Reginald/Reggie. 😛

    • D’awww, thank you! I’m considering going into IT. I got hit by the “IT is not for girls!” thing (er, among others) and I’ve always regretted not taking it at uni. So right now I’m focusing on getting the basics brushed up because I don’t really use them much and seeing what direction I want to go in now that I’ve finally got it through to my head that this is actually a direction I can go in.

      Same. I’ve taken stories out of anthologies with technology magic just because I didn’t want to even risk stumbling across it while reading. With these trigger warnings I’m looking to do something different from that, though. I’m trying to find a way to add them to my books that balances out non-tech-savvy readers’ needs to avoid triggers with other readers’ needs not to be spoiled for the story. And then combines it with my need to deliver a gorgeous ebook experience. I want them to feel like they’re well-integrated parts of the layout design, you know? ^_^
