I came back from a well-deserved, albeit, short vacation and I’m having a bit of a hard time adjusting. I’m not big on traveling and after this trip, let’s just say that I’ll have to think long and hard before I decide to go anywhere overseas, I got stopped and questioned for twenty minutes by two cops as I landed to my connecting flight in El Salvador, I guess I do look like a sketchy character after all. Anyway, a few things have happened since I’ve been back.
- iStock and Getty Images sent me an email telling me that they have no record of an active license for the commercial use of an image on this site. I’m guilty as charge, I used the image in question on a post I did back to 2015 when I first started this site and I had no idea about image licenses and what have you. Needless to say I took down the image and I’ll have to think twice before putting another image on this site; my broke-ass doesn’t need a lawsuit. Lesson learned.
- While formatting the manuscript for my new book, I lost three chapters of the piece, I wanted to die, I still do, it sucks ass. Those lost chapters took a long time to write and research. I became aware of this disaster while I was formatting, slash, read-though and re-write. I know what you’re thinking: Back yer shit up you moron! That’s where the problem lies because I back-up constantly, meaning; as soon as I make a change to the manuscript, any change, I back it up. So, that day, I backed it up as soon as I did the formatting (without double checking), I didn’t became aware of the missing chapters until I did a second read-through. It sucks because I was just about to finish the first draft. Lesson learned, I think. I hope.
- Now for some good news. Christmas is almost here! Eggnog, mistletoe and booze, lots of booze. Cheers!
