Not that I really should expect the books to be posted this week, but I’ve started so now I’m keeping count. Day 10, iBooks not yet posted. Looks like the World of Warcraft book was downloaded 5 times yesterday. So yay for activity.

 

Had Thanksgiving at a friend’s house. Did a lot of the kitchen prep work. Hey, I can wield a knife just fine. I just can’t cook. Anyway I’m getting sleepy and it’s not even midnight yet. Dang turkey.

 

On the pet battles book I’m writing. I’ve got through the Pandaria trainers pasted into the book. Still need to work on Beasts of Fable & The Celestial Tournament. And layout. But I got a bit of work done last night. Today I’ve been cleaning out my RSS feed reader. I’m about a week and a half behind there.

 

I’ve changed my theme on the blog to a Christmasy one to hopefully put me in the mood for it.  I’m hopefully going to try to do the NaBloPoMo into December. Try for a post a day.

 

 

Daily Journal: I don’t wait patiently

If you look at the screenshot, you’ll see the book’s I currently have submitted for approval. There’s an update in review for the World of Warcraft guide, but it is currently available in the 1.0 version. The Hearthstone book is Unavailable pending review because it is a first submission. The SWTOR: Trooper book is an old one I wrote after the Jedi Knight, Smuggler & Jedi Consular books. It was rejected because of some formatting issues. I resubmitted it recently as I think the iBooks Author updates have fixed the issue that was causing the rejection. Anyway I keep checking and keep checking. So far not approved. I had to look back at my texts to a friend submitted the Hearthstone book on 11/18/2013, so today is Day 5 without approval. I want to say I submitted the edits the same day.

Today I’ve been working on the Pet Battles book. Hope to have it down to just needing formatting here soon. I’m currently working on the Pet Tamer NPCs .

Daily Journal: I’m seeing progress

I’m DONE!!!! Hearthstone book is off to the beta readers. The World of Warcraft iBook is available in the iBook’s store. It needs edits! Then I have to decide which book I’m working on next. Pet battles? Classes? Gold making? Help me pick with this survey. Please. Pretty please!

Had a down moment when thinking about work changed it so I’m now working Christmas day. :( Oh well. More time to write that night. I’m jsut trying to keep myself up. Somedays it’s rougher than others.

Worked last night. Got started on the outline & rough draft of the Pet Battles book. I have a feeling I’m going to be working on a lot more paper here at this hospital. For the Hearthstone Book I’ve just got the formatting for the Shaman, Warlock & Warrior to go.

Also good news! The World of Warcraft book is now live!

 

Daily Journal: My backwards life

So what am I doing today. I worked… There’s 12.5 hours (without counting travel time) gone right there. I’m 12 hours flipped from a “normal life”. My day starts at 3:00 PM when the alarm goes off…. I NEVER get up when my alarm goes off. My alarm is an abused thing. The snooze get used a lot. Then I have to squeeze in any Warcraft dailies I’m meaning to do and try to leave for food by 4:30 pm. Eat & write if I’m inclined. I’ve got 1 iBook in Beta review and another in the writing process. The general World of Warcraft book is LONG. 138 pages. Hopefully the Hearthstone book is a lot shorter. Actually I’ve got a lot of it done currently. 3 heroes left to write for. Need to buff up the abilities sections, but I’m getting a lot closer. Anyway try to head for work at 6 PM. Sit and type/surf the net until time to clock in at 6:53 PM. Then it’s work, work, work with the rare bit of writing or reading until 7:30 am. Then it’s drive home and to bed and start the cycle over at 3 PM.

Yesterday I finished Pro Pet Mob achievement in World of Warcraft while doing some pet battle dailies. I also managed to finish leveling my Nether Fairie Dragon, Flayer Youngling and my Infinite Whelpling. I had insomnia a bit. I woke up after about 4 hours sleep. So I got a bit done.

Siege of Orgrimmar Trailer

So ready to kick Garrosh and his power hungry mentality out of Orgrimmar. I’m just wondering what the reason will be that the Alliance allows the Horde to keep Orgrimmar and who is going to be the new Warchief.

And what is it with Taran Zhu always getting nearly mortally wounded this expansion????

So.. 4 times last week and twice so far this week. Tempest Keep hasn’t dropped a single pet. Starting to doubt I’ll see one. Wowhead is having issues so I can’t check other’s drop rates. I need to start hunting for an Unborn Val’kyr I’ve got a spare Undead stone to upgrade it once I catch one so it can even be poor and I’d take it. I just have to find the blasted thing.

Been trying to get Byword to publish to my blog. I’ve purchased the Premium edition, set up Evernote & WordPress, but it still fails at publishing. I’ve emailed support. I’ve tried re setting up the blog/evernote accounts to no avail. Oh well, we’ll see.

Went to see Star Trek Into Darkness. Loved it. Didn’t love the migraine & nausea after though. Had to drug myself to get rid of it. Which has made me very sleepy today.

Daily Journal: Raiding again

Got my Birchbox in. New things to play with.

Raiding again today. Got my dagger off my coin for my Megera kill! Heroic Jin’rokh the Breaker. Then we also worked on Heroic Ji’kun. Seemed like my group was keeping it together pretty well.  Got 3 LFRs in after the raid. Nothing I needed out of there. Ran Kara & got my last pet out of there for Raiding for Leashes II:  Attunement Edition. Ran Tempest Keep. Still no pets out of there. I’m wondering if it is bugged… Literally last week I ran TK 4 times and nothing dropped. First run this week, nothing…. So 5 total runs and I’ve seen NOTHING from 3 separate bosses. I’ve still got to run the healers through, but TK isn’t like Kara. Kara was designed for 10 people to run it. TK was for 25 people. The healers are geared for hps, not dps, but they do have a dps spec (well except for the Pally who gets things done in a tank spec and actually leveled as a tank).
