Editing is the Worst
I did not post that story yet.
Yeah so last post I talked about how I wrote 10k words in three days but as you probably figured, those 10k words were not suitable for the world to see. After initial edits I realized I needed to remove a plot point or remove a character entirely. So I tried fixing that first. Well, a week later that plot point took away from the main story so in the end I had to remove that character. Removing the character will cut the wordcount in half but will get to the point faster which was the initial reaction to some folks who looked at it already.
I wanted to keep some of the old characters from the original Yellow Wallpaper story by making Jennie the housekeeper a character in this one but since we (outside of like, the hyperwealthy) don’t have housekeepers so she was shoehorned in as a waitress/airbnb cleaner that honestly just didn’t work out at all. She was cool though, and will be recycled into another story I’ve come up with just for her. After a quick rename Jennie will be back as like, Polly or Molly or Jane or something but until then she is out of this story.
RIP JENNIE 2
Moving on, it will take me a little longer to remove her bit from the middle of the story and reapply all the things that happen to her to the main character but I will get it posted over at MOSFET.
In other news my iPod blew a transistor or something and now sounds like poo. Got a hold of a used old android phone (a Go phone that probably made a months worth of shady calls and was traded in as a refurb) with no SIM that is now going to be my new music player for a bit. It is wild to me that high end phones will forgo a headphone jack in the name of “having room for a bigger battery” when every single last one of them has 3 stacks of nickles sticking out claiming to be cameras.
If they made modern phones thick enough to be flush with the camera lenses they would HAVE ROOM FOR THE PHONE JACK so those of us with wired headphones can you know, use them with a $1200 device. Yall know those wireless buds have batteries in them that will crap out in 2 years right? Get you some KZ’s or the latest Moondrop Waifu that you know, won’t be trash before the phone.
Anyway, that’s all I’ve got for now. Been busy with Halloween and kids and all so not much else happening. Hope everyone is doing well!
