The beginning of the rainy season

This is the view from my back deck. The left one is across the river. The right one is directly to the left. As you can see, the river is quite high. Usually there’s a lot more room between the edge of the river bank and the river. Now, there’s another 3+ feet before it even comes close to reaching the deck, but it’s still something we all pay attention to starting around this time of year.

Why this time of year? Well, here on our part of the Oregon Coast, this is the real beginning of fall – the start of the rainy season. Fall and winter are often gray with long patches of rain. Last year we went two months solid where we had maybe five days total of sun. It gets rather depressing at times.

So fall and winter I spend more time playing Sims 4 than writing, which is a big problem for me since I want to publish¬†Tiger, Tiger next spring and¬†Into the Flames next fall. (Yes, I’m ambitious.) So I need to buckle down and get to work.

So here we go on a writing adventure! I plan on writing in the mornings and giving myself permission to play Sims 4 later in the day. I figure that will give me my writing as well as my relaxation.

Let the writing commence!

Hi guys! I had to redo my videos for my gaming channel because the audio was all fucked up. So here are the three videos I have up there currently. They’re all Sims 4, but I plan on adding more games soon.

Sims 4 – Heartbreak and Hope Ep 1 – Meet the Prichards

Sims 4 – Heartbreak and Hope Ep 2 – Promotions! Paintings! Life!

Sims 4 – Heartbreak and Hope Ep 3 – Another Baby?

I also broke down and put up a Facebook author page to help further building my platform. I’m going to self-publish Into the Flames this year if it kills me, and I want to be able to get as many people as possible to be able to find me since – if I develop enough fans – I know FB limits how many friends I can have on my personal account. Here’s the link.

I’ve also decided to start a Wattpad account. There’s nothing posted there yet simply because I haven’t gotten anything I consider good enough to put there. But I will have something there soon. I’ll keep you all updated on that one too. I’ll also be posting the links on my Facebook author page as soon as they go up whereas I might not get them up immediately on here so if you want to see them go up I’d follow me there. I’ll throw the link up as soon as I have something there.

So here it is – my gaming channel. So far there are two episodes of my Sims 4 series and one episode of my KOTOR II series. I’ll be adding more games as I go and maybe a vlog or two, though those will probably have weird backgrounds and such since I don’t have a webcam just yet. Come take a look, subscribe, etc. I’ll also be putting up notifications of when I’m doing my streams on Twitch, so you can catch me there too.

Oh, in case you want to follow my Twitch channel, here’s the link for that one too:

See y’all there!
