    New Re: Chapter and... Stuff

    Chapter 36 is officially done as of this moment, but I might wait a bit longer to drop it so I can get started on a backlog. That said, eh. Just lemme know.

    Update: Fixing Shit and the Future

    Alrighty, so I've fixed all the links in my bio. The Ringtail Chat has been rebranded and repurposed to Ringo's Writing Chat. Drop by and check out other people's shit. Post your own artistic media. Maybe swing by for a sprint and see how fast you can pump out some words?

    Dude, Do You Know What Time It Is?

    Yes, me, I know what time it is, and we're nearing the point where I can focus-in on tying the rewrites into the shit I originally started touching up. Good times.

    Chapter Thirty-One Is Official

    Yeah, that's a my b on that one, but it's done now and we come ever closer to the rewrites not needing as much time as they currently take. Again, if you've forgotten, we're looking around 36-38 for faster chapter releases, so hold onto your assorted cells and bear with me here.

The Salt Life of an Author · 10:45am Jan 27th, 2018

Recently my laptop crashed. It crashed hard af and I had to factory reset it.

Guess who used Notepad for everything.

My salt levels are so high that I'm pissing salt, and it burns coming out. I'm about to make a fortune selling my white rain as coke to middle schoolers. Fucking salt levels so potent they'd die of dehydration after one rail. My cock salt is fentanyl-level deadly, Goddammit!

ARGHHH

UUGGGGGGGGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHH

FUUUUUUUUUUUUUCKKKK

I know the pain my friend. Just a small suggestion, back up chapters on pen drives and google docs. Trust me its a god send. But if I may ask... how far were you into the chapter before it went tits up?

Ah, it wasn't a chapter. It was just every note I've taken for A Thief's Tale since I ended the hiatus. A full year's worth of data, references, and the stats, man.

Oh i feel you pain on that one. I had that happen before and it just leaves the feeling of dispair that all the hard work was lost. Well... till i decided that I didnt need it and i could start fresh. Plus this gives you a change to have better ideas and make them ever better then that. Also... sometime it helps to go a little old school and pen and paper that stuff as well as making back ups.

I'll probably end up making a Gdocs page for it or something so it's in my cloud if I ever need to make another note sheet.
In fairness, it was a lot more than just notes. A lot of shit that wasn't necessarily related to A Thief's Tale went bye-bye, thus comes the lesson of the autosave.

Yikes, sorry to hear it, man. I write my stories just using fimfiction's writing... thing, because it's incredibly convenient for me. I've only ever lost my progress once and it was only a few lines, but it still hurt and it didn't feel good having to rewrite it. Can't even imagine how it feels for you... :twilightoops:

Damn, hope you committed most of it to memory, cause Captial G is flipping you a huge bird.

That's exactly why I don't trust my local machine for really sensitive stuff. All that goes on my Gdrive.

Fucking hell man, I got pissed when my computer froze before I could save and lost a chapter, if I was in your position I probably would have went super saiyan from that level of rage.

My existence is pain.
