Upcoming Changes

Posted: July 19, 2009 in General

I’m hoping to make a few adjustments to the site int he next day or two – in reality I’d like to do a complete overhaul, but the tools on the free hosted wordpress site are a bit limited for that, and as a poor starving writer moving to a hosted site is a bit much at the moment, not to mention not really knowing where to start.

But for the changes. A new tab has appeared on the page, as may have been noticed – The Worlds of Mist and Shadows. Nothing in there yet, but I will be adding pages in there over time, exploring the worlds of my writing, their origins, histories, peoples and cultures, to give some background to the various stories that crop up.

I’m also going to give the whole Pure Escapism page and contents an overhaul. I’m going to stop doing them as volumes and post them all as single story releases with their own pages – and give them another thorough editing. Compendiums of stories will return later on, but only after I’ve built up a catalogue of stories to choose from.

    Sounds like lots of goings on! Now and then it IS time for a change – I want to make changes myself but am not really sure where to start… one day 😉

    Ah, the dreaded One Day…I’ve got a list a mile long of things that need doing One Day. making the public just adds that little bit more pressure to actually get them done.

  3. I think that splitting the stories up initially is a good idea. That way, people might be drawn to one of another of the stories depending on their reading style, and then not have to feel like “Well, I didn’t like that story in the group.”

    I just went back and re-posted my reviews of the initial Pure Escapism, Volume One stories on the individual story posts. Now I have to catch up on everything you’ve posted since, as you have unposted Vol Two, and split those stories up as well.

    Sorry for the delay, but you know about juggling all this writing stuff in with real life..

    Thanks for your comments – they have been a real encouragement.

    Perfectly understand the hassles of life getting in the way – my To Do list seems to get longer, not shorter, with each passing day.

    One benefit that may come from splitting them up is that way keeping an eye on which stories are proving the more popular; that way I can concnetrate more on writing those types of stories.

    I’m about to do a big editing day on all the short stories over at smashwords; editing is the bane of my existence. No matter how many times I seem to go over a story I always seem to miss errors. If you wait until after that it may be a bit better reading.

    Volume Two is temporarily unpublished until I figure out exactly what to do with it and volume one. There are actually three stories not individually published yet, including one in volume one. I’m thinking of maybe putting all the short stories done so far (after editing) into a single volume with those three as bonus stories.
