It's time to update my journal. It always takes so long in between those, but I finally got an excuse to babble a bit again!

I got to work today and decided to check my e-mail while the programs were loading, and started the day getting a nice reply from a publisher I decided to send one of my manuscripts to two weeks ago. No publishing in sight, mind you, but they said they enjoyed it and encouraged me to read their feedback, work through the manuscript and send it back when it was done.

The feedback was on around 4 pages, mainly focusing on the story's weaknesses and how they could be solved. Mainly wanting me to cut down and define the story and all that. Very good and useful feedback! I'm going to spend the weekend reading and making up some thoughts in my mind before the potential editing starts.

The story does need some refining for sure, I knew that it wouldn't really make it with all the messy storylines and characters contained in it (because I love showing off characters although they're not really relevant to the main plot).

I'm going to keep the original manuscript intact, of course, because I really love it as it is. But I sure find it exciting to try something new with it as well! =D

And yes. For those who knows my stories it is one of those related to the criminal underworld-society once again.

Aside from that life goes pretty normal. I'm still working the famous 9 to 5 (or 8 to 4) routine. Come home. Derp before the computer and go to sleep a bit later. Eat way too much unhealthy snacks, but let's not talk about that, shall we?

Oh, and I also started playing some Borderlands 2 because I got a new computer to game with =D and it's a nice touch to have KingKaarle help me out and kill all the enemies for me and revive me whenever I die :lol:

So yeah.
Have some cake.

Don't write from your heart. Write from your ass, that's where the real shit comes from. :heart:
