Meanwhile, while a big part of humanity is celebrating Xmas, a new short story had reached a critical mass and is quickly taking shape. This time, the action will bring you to Hong Kong, Macau and Philippines. Stay tuned!
Today I’ve published “No Sugar and other stories” on Smashwords. This publication included my stories “Wish”, “No Sugar”, and the latest “Two Lighters”. Enjoy!
Finally, my new short story, “Two Lighters”, is completed. Enjoy!
Editing my new short story, listening to Jacques Loussier Trio, and faking the Inktober along the way, practicing to visualize the things that don’t exist. #inktober #inktober2019 #tetrischallenge
Wine 4.0.2 comes with Mono, which does not allow the license activation to work. Mono apparently has problems with TLS 1.2, which is required for the license activation component to connect to the server.
The following steps have resolved the problem for me:
- Open the terminal window (Ctrl+Alt+T)
- Add/remove programs window will open. Uninstall Mono and close the window
sudo apt-get install winetricks
winetricks --force dotnet452
When you start Scrivener or Scapple after this, the license activation component should work.
I recently noticed that since I began learning to draw, my dreams became more interesting, vivid, and realistic. Of course, it might be a coincidence, but looks like it was beneficial in many aspects, including giving me some interesting ideas for writing too.
Finally, I’ve completed the first draft of my new story, “Two Lighters”, you can read it here for now: https://www.wattpad.com/741686577-two-lighters-scene-1
It proved to be more difficult than I expected to finish it – especially the very ending, as I got emotionally attached to it a bit too much. Now I’ll let it rest for a while, and then, after another round of editing, will publish it properly.
Talking about the space exploration and building self-sustainable settlements in space or on other planets, we need to remember that humanity so far could not achieve self-sustainability even on the water, in a friendly environment of our home planet. When your old home vessel will start leaking, can you manufacture the new one, while on the water? No. So, before dreaming of space colonies, go back and do the homework then.
I have to say, was totally amazed today by a Kuretake brush pen. I’ve tried quite a few brush pens before, but this one is the most brush by far. Probably the closest you can get to a real brush, but without all the difficulties of a real brush.
I’ll be publishing the new short story on Wattpad scene by scene as I finish editing, you can start reading here: https://www.wattpad.com/741686577-two-lighters-scene-1
