The Lacey Stocking mysteries bundle is now available in ebook and audio!
As I’m sitting here, with a nice, hot cup of tea, mulling over which step to take next, I see I have a few options before me.
While I’m expending all my mental and emotional energy on getting this guy’s health under control…
it’s me, hi, i’m the problem it’s me.
I realize that I can’t create…anything. I just don’t have it in me, which kind of sucks because I have three books that need fixed and still want to write more Lacey Stocking scripts for youtube. Unfortunately, until I get my cat’s health under control, I can’t think of anything else. (I haven’t even decorated for Christmas.) This little dude has been through a lot this year and has been having the worst luck with vet visits. Someone tell me what the fuck is going on? lol
Anyway, where was I?
I’m learning Reaper, which is an audio editing software, and for the first time in five years I feel like I might have made some headway. But, let me tell you something about this program… Unlike Audacity, which is a clean, straightforward interface that is pretty much like most software programs we’re familiar with, like Word for example. Want to delete something? Highlight it and hit delete. Want to change how something looks? Highlight it and make the change. Audacity is like that; Reaper is…not. Everyone keeps saying how awesome this program is, but I’ve found it unnecessarily difficult and clunky. For two actions in Audacity, you might have to go through four difficult ones in Reaper, at least that’s how it feels now. Once I get more familiar with it, maybe I’ll think differently. I’m bound and determined to see this through. The only reason I’m learning this now is because of the equalizer. Reaper has powers that Audacity doesn’t have and that’s what I’m after.
While I’m learning, I’ve decided to turn another one of my books into audio. I started it a while ago and stopped to do Lacey Stocking (which I really like doing, by the way) and figured since I don’t have much mental energy for anything else, I’ll finish that up. It requires concentration but not creative energy. I need a distraction, yet I’m too distracted to create new work. I’ll get there, hopefully soon. This has been one messed up years for me and the cats. It took a few wake up calls from the universe before I began to suspect that something was rotten in the state of Denmark. Going to a different vet’s office out of necessity made me realize that he might not have been getting the best care where he was. Fingers crossed that we get back on course.
So that’s all for now. I have a few blog posts stewing in my brain. The one about AI is going to be a tough one to write, but one I need to get off my chest. Ciao!
