I do, however, have some news for you that I would have otherwise shared in a podcast. I have nearly finished editing my short stories. One of them is taking a little longer than expected because I had to swap it from first person to third person because it was the only way to make it work. It was written in the first person and the present tense, and I absolutely fail at the present tense and it made no sense because I kept swapping tenses. I thought I would have to scrap it entirely but then I got the idea to just swap perspectives so I could make it entirely past tense and now it makes sense again. Once this one is edited there is only one more story to go. I'm hoping to be done by the end of the week and then I'm going to leave them alone next week, and read through them once more the week after. I think I'm beginning to get a much better grasp on this whole waiting game, and the way writing is supposed to work. While it may be impressive I wrote all those stories in a week, they suffered in quality for it. While it's not bad at all to churn out a 5000 word story in a day, it's worth going back and looking over it later. Especially as my writing skills have improved. Actually yesterday I was reading something by one of the best authors I know and instead of thinking to myself "I wish I could write like this" like I normally would I thought to myself "Hey, I can write like this". It was quite a shock to the system to not only think of myself as a good writer, but to look at someone else's work and think I could do something on par with it. I have grown as a writer, even if I've not really seen it. When I take the time, and I'm doing something I enjoy, then I make an effort to make something special. Well anyway, when I'm done looking over them again, if I'm pleased with them, then I'll deem them ready for publication. I think you can expect them to be published by the end of next month.
Although, given how ill and potentially delirious I am, I wouldn't really take me on my word right now.
In other news because I was sick I stayed in bed and watched The Dark Knight Rises at long last. Other than Bane's voice, and how they messed with his history and character, I don't see why I've seen people say it's a bad movie. It was pretty awesome in my view and while it's not my favourite of the Nolan Batman films (that's still The Dark Knight) I thought it was pretty good. I wasn't too happy with the eight year time skip and a few other things, but on the whole it was a good movie. To me anyway, I've seen other people pan it and call it bad.
Also I may not have an Immortal Space update this week given how ill I'm feeling. I'm going to see how I feel and try. It may be on Sunday instead of Saturday if there is one at all. As well as this my post tomorrow is going to be super late because I have a therapy session so I better be in better shape by then. I don't think I have to go out anywhere today so I can veg out in bed and watch ponies and movies all day too. Oh and edit my stories I guess.
Of course though, the best news I heard yesterday was that Friendship is Magic has been renewed for a fourth season that's going to be a full 26 episodes long.
