Go on the humans!

Thx. It was fun designing it. I must say I'm curious as to what others think of how it looks.Link? Don't speak Dutch but am curious (love the sound of the language, and might also borrow some words to make English sound like it's from outer space -will put them back when I'm finished
Great work -just had a quick look but I'll be back. Can't fault the design -it's fast, responsive and easy to navigate. The only thing I could see that was tricky were the two menus (L & R of the header on the mobile version, they work better on desktop I think); there was nothing to show they were different so a casual reader might miss stuff but, ya know, random person on the internet and all that and nobody ever might miss that.
Hmm, editing takes me a couple of hours total. At least, the final edits. All my work is sent to CPs as I go along so the complete draft is usually fairly clean. Then I know my agent will have suggestions, and a potential editor will have more, so I find it's pointless to fiddle with it too much at this stage.Sounds like a car I used to have.
Eek! Top marks if you can keep your editing to less than 8 hours a day.
Right now, I'm writing a follow up sequel to a story I wrote about two years ago. My story is a little....weird but it does have some sci-fi elements so hoping to get feedback hereI thought there was a thread like this, but I've searched back and the only one I could find was 'What do we all write?' which isn't really what I mean.
So, this'll be interesting. We all like talking about ourselves...
What are you working on, writing wise, right now. It can be editing, research, short stories, novel, comp entries. Anything you're working on, I want to hear about. As long as it's related to writing. If you're fixing your car or something, I don't care.
At the moment I'm mostly working on the revisions from the publisher with allmywires, but when I'm not doing that, I'm working on my Allery story.
More specific? Today, I had to add more kink to the romance. The publisher liked a certain scene we had, but wanted more pre-scene stuff. So it meant I had to put a weird search thing into Google. I won't share. But I ended up adding almost 400 words.
With my Allery story I'm currently researching lots of drug abuse stuff. One of my characters is a junkie. I was watching a vid on YouTube about a guy in prison going through withdrawals and learning about how the veins in your arms kinda disappear.
I feel for you. I absolutely hate that stuff. It flicks the setting in my brain to "depressed".
What is it about the marketing of your books that gets you so bad?>I absolutely hate that stuff
I don't hate it, it's just that I'm not very good at it and so everything takes longer than it should. And I'm pretty sure I could be getting better return on my time invested.
But not advertising is a guaranteed way to have my books disappear utterly. So that's not an option.
You'll hate this:Briefly, it's something that I've got no talent towards. I find anything involving maths or statistics almost impossible to follow. If I have any particular talent, it's for writing. This is galling because I know that someone who knows how to game the system could write a novel that was absolute rubbish, and still sell a hundred times as many copies as me. It's not so much that I think I'm great, more that I don't know how to do my own work justice.
