Editing Is Hard

Yeah, lately I’ve been focusing on turning “The Diary of Destiny King” into an ebook.  I already edited it all once, but that obviously isn’t enough lol.

Right now I’m going through for the final edits.  Honestly, there isn’t much to edit.  It’s more like proofreading imo.  It’s very rare to find errors or problems.  However, there are quite a few things that I need to make small adjustments to…

Aside from that, I also spend a lot of time formatting everything properly.  Or at least what I think is properly lol.

As for “Chaotica’s Coliseum”, I haven’t really been writing that much.  First of all, because I’m kinda burnt out from writing atm(It’s something that happens to me every time I write half a dozen books rofl.)  I mean, put it this way… TDoDK was 140k words.  Immediately before that, I wrote 3 books of “The Dao of Eros”.  Each TDoE book was about 50k words.

From May until October, I basically wrote close to 300k words.  Before that, I wrote 100+ chapters of “Hardcore Legacies”.  Before that, I wrote 450k words of “Hardcore OP-ness”.  Before that, I wrote 350k-400k words of “Immortal Soul” and 50K words of “Questing”.  Before that, I think I wrote like 100k words of “Harem Reaper”.

A total of around 1.2 million words in about 2 years.  That’s a lot of words.  Anyway, the point is that I’ve written like 18 books or so(when I break them down into books) and I really do need to focus on editing now, more than writing.

Now, when I say that I haven’t been writing that much… I mean that I’ve decreased my speed a lot compared to TDoDK.  I’ve written the prologue and 3 chapters of “Chaotica’s Coliseum” so far.

CC is pretty fucked up imo, but mostly because slavery and rape are my triggers lol.  I’ve noticed that a lot of other people tend to not give a shit, so this story probably isn’t even that fucked up.

Honestly though, I think CC is basically like a xianxia in a lot of ways.  Some people might love that, others might hate it, but the best I can do is make the story to my own personal liking and hope that other people feel the same way.  This has been my philosophy since I started posting stories online by the way rofl.

Maybe if I was making millions mutilating my own work, I wouldn’t feel too bad about the censorship, but until then… If I don’t personally like my own story, then why the hell should I expect other people to like it?

Is it offensive?  Is it disturbing?  Is it too complicated?  Is it not complicated enough?  I don’t know!  I can only do my best and hope for the best lol.
