The other day, I pledged to a project on Kickstarter on May 18. It was the first time I made an account on that website. On May 22, I got an email from GoFundMe: a person named “Casey Atkins” (not a real name) was requesting for donations. I’ve never signed up for GoFundMe. Seriously, are Kickstarter and GoFundMe the same entity under the hood?
Where is my privacy? Transparency out of control.
Beginning a Docs-as-Code journey
As a newly minted tech writer, I’ve had the pleasure to be given my first project in the software department: organize internal documentation. When you have guests come over, cleaning the rooms becomes a mad dash. And as I would expect, if external documentation is the polished, spick-and-span room where your guests are visiting, the internal documentation looks like the closet crammed of stuff.
When I was in kindergarten, my teacher had the “star of the week” activity where one of us would have our life details hung up on a wall. Each of us had to fill out a profile about ourselves: what we liked to do, what we wanted to be when we grew up, what was our favorite animal, yellow construction-paper star, a crayon self-portrait.
Poems are stupid
Poetry is a special literary art. They sound or look pretty.
On Tense and Time
Controlling the narrative of time is the purpose of the comedian, the storyteller, and the writer.
Fiction Style Guide
Well, it’s been a long ride. I’ve finally completed all my coursework for a bachelor’s in Tehcnical Communication. I don’t know how I feel about this whole COVID-19 nonsense that’s been going on for over a year. I think working with non-fiction for 4+ years has fried my brain. Maybe I’ve always preferred non-fiction? As I kid I loved documentaries as much as Disney movies.
Adam & Eve
In Christian faith, the first sinner was Eve, who ate of the fruit that God commanded to ignore. The second sinner was Adam, who brought mortality upon man.
Some changes to the site: the Front page features my main work more prominently. Also, I made a new banner image for The Overzealous Healer. I really like it! It’s used in Chapter 39 because of a flashback. I’m going to use it more in the future.
Word count update: May 4th
The Overzealous Healer’s word count on chapter 26: 45,273
Twelve chapters in “The Overzealous Healer” and I have written 18,895 words! This is a first for me, and such a long story. I don’t think I can keep up steam without burning out, so I’ll slow down (I still have classwork during Coronavirus lockdown, heh). A novel is 50,000+ words; I’m not even halfway there, but eventually I will be. I have about 4,400 words worth of snippets for the plot, and I’ve been fleshing out the outline with more adventures. I wonder at what point the plot will reach, if/when I hit 50,000.
Myself as a person, I’m sarcastic and blunt so it’s hard to make characters who are NOT sarcastic and blunt. I’ll try to introduce a variety of speaking styles to reflect real life.
Heya, here’s a new banner image! Looks cool right?
I’m glad with how the Chinese characters turned out, but I’m still working on that. This is just a sneak glimpse of a tablet that summarizes this story’s magic system.
Unfortuantely English words are too long and don’t fit into circles, so that’s why I used Hanzi since I can represent a concept in a nutshell.
Also, it will make it easier for any Chinese or Japanese readers to understand… hah…ha…
Setting up the site
