  • Hey Snoink! I was wondering, (asking since you have published before) when you write and work on novel drafts, which program do you use to do that?

    Snoink OKAY. So I'm not sure how much you know about my publishing experience, but like... none of my novels are published. I started a publishing company for books that guide you through the prayers of the Rosary with classic art. :) So like... I did all the graphic design and it's beautiful and so wonderful and amazing. But also, the only thing that I "wrote" for it was the introduction. Everything else comes from tradition and scripture. :)

    I made those books using an old version of Adobe Indesign. But like... if I were to redo those books, I would totally use the Affinity suite to make them now because the Adobe subscriptions are crazy.

    Anyway... for novels?

    I used to write my novels on Scrivener because I love Scrivener, but then my computer started exploding and I switched to Google Docs because auto save is amazing. (Also, when @Spearmint agreed to read Book 1 for me, she suggested that I share it with her via Google Docs, so that's how I learned about the power of Google Docs, lol.) Anyway, it actually is nice to edit on my phone since I can't always get the laptop, so that's what I do now! As soon as Scrivener makes a mobile app though, I'll probably go back to them... Scrivener is just the best. :)

    I have Vellum for making ebooks... I bought it originally for another project for Illustrated Prayer, but... I haven't published that yet. Still, I've used it to make ebooks for my novels and it's nice to be able to see my novel nicely laid out. :) It's only for mac though... I hear Atticus is a good other version that comes in PC.

    I publish using IngramSpark.

    Anyway, I hope that helps! :)

  • Okay we're about... I dunno, a third through season 2 of Avatar?? Some thoughts about Zuko because AHHHHH.

    Spoiler! :
    It was SO HARD to see Zuko calling out for the lightning at the top of the canyon because like... you could tell he was just in ANGUISH and like. Yeah, if he could have taken control of the lightning, he probably would have been relieved because he wasn't a complete failure, but also if the lightning struck him down, like... he would probably have been okay with that too because he is in such a dark place right now, and I just...

    I sort of wish someone would give him a hug and tell him it was going to be all right, but that clearly won't work because there have been people who have been ridiculously kind to him, and what happened? He ended up stealing an ostrich horse from them!!! Which I am slightly salty about, though I get it... he didn't want their pity. That girl kept trying to touch him to comfort him and he wasn't ready for it and she just kept at it, which probably hurt him even more because she wanted to make him feel less alone and she only made him feel more alone because she actually didn't understand his pain, which made him feel worse. So, since she caused him such pain, why shouldn't he steal the ostrich horse? After all, if she really wanted to be nice to him, then she wouldn't mind him taking the ostrich horse.

    But yeah. He's in a dark place right now. Even if you hugged him and told him it was going to be all right, 1) he doesn't want to be touched right now, 2) the consolation that everything is going to turn out all right would not be an honest assessment things have only been getting worse for him. Why should they be all right???

    Anyway. I hope things turn out okay? I really like his character. Like, the Fire Nation sucks, but ahhhhhhh Zuuuuuuuuuuuuuko.

    Also, his sister sucks.


    LadyMysterio Zuko's sister suck but she's such a good villain.
    I love hearing Zuko's story though your thoughts. It's been a minute e since I've at I've watched the series hehe
