I would never in a million years make a pitch for my writing on Twitter! If I'm to be honest, my Twitter is something of a dumpster fire. I mostly use it to rant about the foolish things said by the Orange Overlord.

Overall, I think the changes in the publishing industry are great for independent authors. I was never good at the whole papering my wall with rejection slips thing.

Weekend Writing Warriors + Shameless Self-Promotion Saturday 4 July 2020

I'm hoping to get back on track with my snippets from Ketil and Yitzy's Adventure in the Xura Dream House. The last snippet I shared from this novelette can be found here:

 http://www.naughtynetherworldpress.com/2020/03/weekend-writing-warriors-22-march-2020.html

“’Ang on a tick, Johnny!” the small ghoul advised in a nasally alto voice somewhat reminiscent of a creaking hinge as he lifted his finger to his sharp-toothed mouth. “Is that him?”

“Him whom?” the first ghoul inquired as his companion pulled him towards a clump of spiky bushes.

“Ketil Nagel, that’s whom! Where have you been?”


“Undead since 1918, like you! Why should we give a toss if that’s Ketil Nagel? I’ve no strife and snarl with him.”

Ornery Notes
I was intending to publish The Ballad of Gerry Clifford today but instead decided to spend the month going over it one chapter at a time to make sure it is really up to snuff. I read each chapter aloud after doing my two initial editing passes. 

I am working on the first draft of Toys in the Attic for Camp NaNoWriMo. I like Camp NaNoWriMo because you set your own goals rather than having to write 50,000 words in a month on one project like the regular NaNoWriMo. I probably do write 50,000 words a month, but it is spread out over multiple projects.

Whenever I have done NaNoWriMo in the past, I have ended up with a steaming pile of rubbish that I can't bear to look at again. The only thing that has even a vague chance of passing muster with this process is smut. I don't enjoy it, so I don't do it anymore. It only took me about thirteen years to figure out that I really cannot write anything worth reading using the NaNoWriMo process. I'm kind of slow on the uptake sometimes.

I broke up with Publish0x and am now re-opening the Horror Harridans Writing Sisterhood as a catch-all blog, for whatever that's worth.

Happy Independence Day to whoever celebrates such. I will probably have the recipes for the Divine Dijon Drumsticks and Dijon Garden Potato Salad up on the Good Stuff From Grover Blog tomorrow if anyone is interested in those.


Keep on keeping on, and if you have a project you'd like to shamelessly self-promote, feel free to leave a link in the comments.

Insecure Writers' Support Group + WTF Wednesday 1 July 2020: A Sincere Apology

I'm sorry. Here's a Chihuahua


The Insecure Writers' Support Group question for July is:

There have been many industry changes in the last decade, so what are some changes you would like to see happen in the next decade?

What a fantastic segue! Fair warning, I cuss a lot. If you are bothered by profanity, you will want to give me a miss. 

Self-publishing has started to be taken seriously during the past decade. Unfortunately (or maybe fortunately for the quality of the material being presented) most self-published authors are not independently wealthy, so we need to engage in self-promotion as well.

I would like to see myself become independently wealthy in the next decade.

That being said...

My longtime followers have probably not failed to notice my promotion of a platform called Publish0x over the past several months. I was a big fan of Publish0x. The platform allows readers to tip authors using cryptocurrency from the Publish0x pool at no cost to themselves. That sounds pretty damn great, and it probably would be if the people who run the platform weren't prats.

Obviously, the bloom is off the rose.

"So, Ornery, what happened? Why did you give Publish0x' ring back?"

I logged into Publish0x to do my thing. Lo and behold, the write a post function is gone. A glitch? Nay. It turns out that my Naughty Netherworld Press blog was removed without warning because Publish0x claims that I seriously violated one of their terms. 

I don't know which one, because they sent me a crappy form letter, which said:

Hello,

We're sorry to inform you that your authorship privileges have been removed. This is due to a serious breach of our rules when posting content on the site.

If you wish to dispute this decision then please respond to this email, stating clearly why you believe your authorship should be reinstated.

Thanks,
Publish0x

Well, exactly what do you want me to do with that overwhelming lack of information, Publish0x? I don't know which post violated your rules. Other than embedded Twitter videos featuring cute animals that lead back to the source, the only content I publish is MY OWN. I cite my sources and use free pictures from places like Pixabay. 

The last post I published on Publish0x was this one:


The content of that post was original. I cite where I cross-posted it. The material being sourced was written by me. That post is me all over.

Initially, this is what I wrote to Publish0x support.

I am not sure why this has happened. I only publish material that I have written and correctly source any material such as videos and images. I only use free-use images from Pixabay and such. I have posted some embedded videos from Twitter, but these clearly link back to the source. I have always been very careful not to break the rules and would like to know which post you are referring to.

Eleven minutes later, this is the tune I was singing:

Never mind, just delete my account. If you can't even be bothered to tell me which post was the problem or what I supposedly did that was a breach of conduct, that is pretty unprofessional. I have always been very careful to follow your rules. Other than the occasional embedded twitter post with a cute animal video, which links directly back to its source, all the material I post is my own work. I correctly identify my sources, and I only use images from free-use sites such as Pixabay. 

This form letter is the height of impersonal. I liked your platform and thought it was an excellent alternative to WordPress and Blogger. I promoted the platform every time I shared a post. Unfortunately, I will be rescinding my support of your platform and I would like you to delete my account immediately. In fact, I will be suggesting that people not use Publish0x.

So, there you have it, Folks. I am going back to the tried and true. Publish0x was a pain in the ass anyway, but I thought it had potential.
