Got rid of the link in there to download the music file for the story. Wasn't sure if anyone even used it and I realized that not a lot of people are willing to download random things off the internet. Wasn't necessary anyways.
Edit: Oh right, also, 5th anniversary of my WDC account happened 15 days ago.
Don't want to get banned for pointing this out or something, but I'm starting to think those "Please upgrade to premium to continue because of limited server resources" notifications when going beyond chapter 4 on interactives are a lie. I have three separate computers that I use this website on (one of which is on a completely separate wifi network). Only one of my computers has this problem, and coincidentally, it is also the computer I use this site most on, it also shares a network with one of the other 2 computers, so the wifi being bad is ruled out. My other 2 computers do not have this problem at all when trying to go beyond chapter 4 on interactives. My theory is that after a certain amount of time, WDC starts doing this on a per-IP address basis. I've been going back and forth with myself on this for a while and finally settled on that is what is happening.
Why is WDC giving me two different word counts on my short story? The one showing when I hover over the item in my "highlighted items" section says 500 words. But when I go into the item, and click the option on the top right, then click word count, it says 582 words. So, which is it?
I think I just had a "moment"? Not sure, for about 20 minutes I was absorbing information about how to write better so much faster than I usually can. I was just reading a story. I suppose it might have been the fact that I was loving the story a lot. I'm talking about Sabbatical for the Soul by the way (the one I referenced in an earlier note). It was weird, I feel like I could write anything and have it be a masterpiece. I know that is not the truth, but it feels that way.
I was remembering a quote, not one from anyone particularly famous as far as I know, and I don't remember the quote exactly so I'll paraphrase (and I'm too lazy to look it up): There are three different sides of you that you show people, one that you show strangers, one that you shows close friends and family, and one that you show only to yourself when you are alone, and this, is your truest reflection of yourself.
I noticed that I tend to be very caring in public, but still putting up fronts when I talk or going in a round about way of getting what I want. When I'm with close friends and family, I tend to be funny and quick-witted, thinking fast on my feet. When I'm by myself, I'm cold, more calculating I suppose. I have almost no empathy and tend to think that anyone I see in a show/movie/book is stupid and tend to not understand why they are so emotional. I'm not sure if this makes me a bad person, a sociopath, or something else. Also, I heard that apparently that sociopaths and psychopaths were officially considered the same thing now as there wasn't much difference between them. I think that is false, but I do not control terminology for the psychological fields.
Hey, just thought I'd ask. Anyone got some recommendations for some dark fantasy book series? I'm kinda running out of books to read at my house. Figured I'd see what you guys are reading to satiate my reading addiction. Doesn't have to be dark, but I'd most definitely prefer it.
Some examples of (dark) fantasy books/series I like:
Cradle Series (either the best or second best in my opinion)
The Traveler's Gate Trilogy (sharing the spotlight with Cradle Series)
The above series are both by the same person (Will Wight) who happens to be my current favourite author. Anyways, yeah, looking for books so it'd be nice to get some recommendations from the WDC community.
I had the weirdest dream last night. This dream would also double as a really good creepypasta. Kidnapping, assassins, weird futuristic technology. The guys who kidnapped me even had some weird way to limit the amount of blood my body was allowed to use at any one point in time. They told me if my heartbeat gets too high, that they'll take away 40% of my blood. Then they'd give it back after I delivered this weird package to this random hole in the ground. Also, for some reason I wasn't myself for most of the dream. I was some random girl, I don't know what she looked like (I didn't have a mirror) but I could tell she was definitely more athletic than me haha.
Definitely my second weirdest dream ever. My weirdest dream was when I was six or seven. I was in this ominous town square and I saw a cloud in the shape of a mug with a chopped off hand holding it. Somehow that really scared dream me and I dropped down pretending to be dead. Dream logic I guess.
I've been thinking that I might just let someone else take over the "Adventures of Rias Rockshire" series. I have no idea what to do with it and I'm unmotivated to write more chapters for it. Feel free to change the name of the novel and the characters. I don't care if I'm credited, just make sure to tell me you are taking it so I can remove it from my portfolio.
Despite the fact that the writing within it is pretty bad, I still think the idea of the novel itself is good. I'd be very happy if someone else took it. Love to see what someone can accomplish with it. I do not desire credit or recognition, I desire a good story.
