Not much to add, once again. I planned to get some work done but my job called me in to work. Also, I get a free ride home so I really ain't gonna argue with that. As far as the story, I just feel there isn't enough exposure as of yet. I mean, most of everyone I know knows about the story. They don't know any of the details--so no one has to worry about spoilers--but they do know that its been written. My mother, on the other hand, I've told her some of the scenes and story details. So, just don't ask my mom about the book. You would get way too much information or be disappointed because she'll keep quiet about it. I'm well over half way through the first book. I'm pretty happy about how well its going. I just, still, have a hard time staying focused. I just got a few movies and then there's the system on which I play sooooooooo many video games. I think my schedule is: work, play xbox until I get bored or sick of it, then eating, then writing. I'm not extremely motivated. It's not that the book isn't interesting to me, it's just I feel like I'm way ahead of schedule. I know, I should take the extra time to get more done. I'm just enjoying my ending twenties yal!
Until next time,

I have news but, most of it is only mere steps from the updates last month. I know that it seems i'm slacking off. The truth is, I am still surrounded in work. I finally got a decent working copy of Fate Stay Night; although its english dubbed instead of subbed like I was truly looking for. So, that takes up a lot of my really, really idle time. For example, played xbox for an hour, wrote some, washed dishes, made food. Now, this is the time where I would go back into writing, after finishing my food. What happens though, is that I eat and decide to watch Fate while doing so. Then after eating, i just continue to watch Fate. Then, when I take a break from watching Fate, I usually jump back onto Xbox. Its a vicious cycle.
Right now, I had planned to work on my story also. I'm failing though. Its really hard for me to do anything well when I know I have to go to work. I think its because i'm still in pajamas and not ready to walk out the door. If I was dressed for work and ready to walk out the door, i think I could focus better on tasks. Anyway, I got some stuff done in the past few days. I wanna' say I'm near the 75% completion point. So, things seems to be moving along quite well. I planned to have the book done and published by my birthday on December 17th. That way, I can use the last bit of the year to prepare for the following year. i'll be free of supervision so I'll be looking at moving to Europe for college. Although these books are high on my list of priorities.getting a degree and starting a career i will love is at the highest. Writing is something I've always loved and had a passion for. Keep in mind, a man who's trying to learn to build buildings and structures that will house human beings and exist around human beings, I can't put 100% focus on mythical creatures, beasts, and fantasy worlds!

Also, I wanted to note that I've been exploring a lot of recipes online. They're mainly Japanese breakfast and dinner recipes. I like my current diet, I've just been needing to add meats and wanted to stray from my self-created SP ramen. It's a very delicious dish but, I want to eat more than just sausage patties. I've always favored chicken but, never had any recipes to make myself. I've gathered a few chicked recipes, pork recipes, and also some recipes for salmon. I'm looking forward to having a very international meal selection. I just bought a bunch of cookware from the local Goodwills. Time to put them to good use!

Not much to give an update on. I haven't really found time to work on the story at all. I've been busy filing taxes and running errands. When I'm at home, i usually end up falling asleep. Like yesterday, when I made a full cup of coffee, finished it, and fell asleep watching a movie: more than likely Ocean's 13.Still, i do project to have the book finished by December 2019. I haven't been able to start truly promoting since DeviantART requires a COREmembership to add a poll to journal logs. I could opt to put the poll on this. However, this website is really not made for that kind of thing. It's just blogging and my works on this site. Well, i'm trylng to keep it that way. Maybe I can begin promotions on my youtube page. i'm not sure on how successful that will be but, I want to avoid paying out of pocket as much as possible. I plan to get some work started as soon as I get back to house and pay my landlord rent. So, again, hopefully I'll be looking at a finished 3rd ACT for my first book/novel. Stay tuned and hopefully I'll have a poll, and contest, in the works in the very near future!

So, got some kinda good news for you all. Because of my quick projected finish date for the roughs of my first novel, I will begin promotion VERY SOON. The first announcement on that, is that I will be developing a symopsis for BOOK 1. So, if anyone wants to search up information about the upcoming book, there will be a short symopsis to give future readers a glimpse into the world of...I'm not giving you guys spoilers that easy!
Well, I still am very paranoid about the entire project. I constantly feel like people are somehow finding a way to look at my documents. Its very, very frustrating. Because of that, I've decided to just go ahead and buy a desktop. That way, it will be a lot more easy to detect any intrusions. Also, things are looking to be going a lot more swimmingly. I've reached the final stretch of my rewriting. It's crazy. It's like everytime I blog, I'm "almost" done or "half-way" done. Maybe i just coincidently just decide blog when I'm at the midway of completion. *shrugs* I think my latest burst of progress is due to the fact that I've altered my room a bit. I took my food out of a small cabinet I was storing it in. I, instead, put my chemical stuff (dishwashing liquid, bleach, candles, air-freshners, etc) in the cabinet. I plan to put my desktop on top of the cabinet, which I now have in the closet. All in all, there seems to be a lot more space in my room. I get to work out and for the first time, actually fell asleep in my armchair.
Back to business though. After I'm done with this last scene of rewriting, I'll be all clear to write these last 2-3 chapters. The book is written to only contain 5 chapters but, after doing rewriting and studying, I may make the book a TAD bit longer. Its getting bad though. I'm trying to keep everything so lowkey that the small things I have said, at work, are biting me in the butt. I engaged in conversation with a customer and it brought up details about my second book and I was really uncomfortable speaking about it. How am I to know if she isn't a fan from DeviantART that is really desperate for a spoiler?!! Anyway, I just don't think I'm that good at hiding things so I'm definitely going to start working on the synopsis and a cement title for the book.
I'm going to get a poll on DeviantART going. The poll will be on how interested people are in the story and their interest in hearing what exactly the book(s) is going to be about. God! I wish I could just say "Welcome to [THE NAME OF THE WORLD THE BOOKS TAKE PLACE IN]!" But I can't because I don't have the map that I drew next to me right now. And since it would be the first time anyone hears the name of the world, I kinda wanna give you guys a lasting first impression. Not, the wrong name and me editting it to the right name weeks later.
Go to DeviantART and search "orangexclouds" or "Deon Williams" I believe they both will bring you guys to my page. I'm going to start the poll tonight and have it end on St. Patrick's Day. The goal is to get 100+ positive feedbacks about the book. Also, I will do a raffle. The winner will get to read the synopsis 24 hours before I post it on DeviantART and here on webs.com. So go check it out!

Well, this is my first post of the new year. Not too much has changed. I've got a very small apartment, i have way too many distractions, I'm working, paying bills and trying to complete these novels. It's a tough road but, slowly I'm making progress. I think the majority of the slowness comes from the fact that I have to re-write half of what I've written for Book 1. This is aggrivating but, its not unmanageable. I don't have to re-write all the 4 chapters. Lucky for me, the first chapter--after the prolouge--is completely fine. I might have to tweak it a bit, after re-writing the other chapters. It is really hard to find time though. When I first get home from work, the only thing I'm truly interested in is: food, a smoke and playing xbox 360. After I finish that, i look at my laptop and--wanting to get work done--instead jump on Mobile Legends and get some more kills. After that, I might start on writing, That is, if the mood to play more fighting games on Xbox 360 doesn't strike first. I also have to eat in that time also. Its just a big cluster fuck.
I really want to get a bed that folds into the wall. I was looking at the name of it all day and cant remember. Oh yeah! I think its murpher bed or something like that. That will give me more room in my apartment. I will be able to add a desk also. That will help me VISIBLY see organization. With that, hopefully my mind connects the two and I'll have more success in my endevours. As far as my book progress goes, I'm working on the prolouge. It's pretty much done, I just need to write how the "chapter" ends and then I can move on. So basically, I'm 1/3 of the way done with this temporary slow in work pace. I'm ready to just get to the rest of the story, which is outlined, so I can fly through chapters. I want to atleast have the process of publishing having started by the end of 2019. I'd love to have my book released before I head overseas. That would be SO awesome. That way, the US can help this struggling college student get through my years hunting for a degree! [lol]
Well, I don't really use only for my laptop when I'm at home. This will probably be my only post for a while. I'm always busy with working and trying to get things done. I have a probation officer I have to deal with, rent to pay, and everything that goes with having a job (busstop waits, traveling to and from busstops, rides on the bus, time at work, time traveling from work). After an average day, i don't have too much interest in going to starbucks or somewhere I can use public wifi and not be distracted by my electronics at home. Wish me good luck!

All is well. I ended up getting a motel room after visiting the beach, stepping in the icy cold water, and noticing my feet didn't look too healthy. So I figured I need to have a good day of soaking in hot water and relaxation. I finised the 5th segment for Book 2! Which is awesome because it was about a character that I really dislike. I don't what in the world posessed me to make a character like this one. Anyway, now that I have gotten that out the way, I can really sit down and hammer some of the other work out. This day in the motel will help out A LOT. I managed to find sheet covers, after searching my job, another location of the store I work at, and finally found them at Walgreen's. They help. I had some binders, but all the paper covers and envelopes I had gotten didn't have holes in them. So, it was still so unorganized I opted not to start using them too much. Now, I have my notes(brainstorming) and the actual story material seperated by which novel they associate with. I'm happy I can go to mcdonalds and buy coffee in like just 3-4 hours or so. Anyway, look out world!

So, turns out that my manager at work happens to be an author. So yeah, I'm going to start leaving my work materials at my parents' house. I just done with being paranoid about all these peepers bro. Its nice to have everything I need at my fingertips but, until my probatioin officer tells me that he's found housing, I'm just going to have to carry bits and pieces.
Well, I'm still shakily working on the first novel. I've been mostly busy writing the second novel. The 5 segment is just such a daunting task. I basically thought it would be such a good idea to write an entire segment in 1st person. Turns out though, the character that the segment follows isn't my favorite--by far. Anyway, I'm closing to the end of it though. I've been so busy with the segments surrounding the 5th. It kinda made piecing pieces of the story together easier. Regardless, I'm at the very last bit of it and I'm happy. I will no longer have to focus my efforts all on this character that I TRULY despise.
Live Game Streaming
So, I've made some improvements. I have a water bottle that kind of makes my streams look a lot more...legit I guess? Anyway, i have yet to stream on YouTube since getting it. Regardless, I'll try to make my channel i dont know, better. Its just theres a lot that I'm trying to do right now: a lot that I have to do right now. Its just, nothing is really set in stone at the moment. As far as what I'm sure of, I'm definitely going to keep getting this story fleshed out. Yes, there are days when I'm just too caught up with having a good time or I really need sleep, or I have to work all day. I'm sure that the novel(s) will get done. Hopefully, before I move to Europe/Asia. That way, I can still say it's a US production. But, if I keep having all these lurking eyes and people being sketchy as fuck, I'm just gonna say it for overseas. I really just need my own house just to write, like I read this woman had done in a book.

So there's a good amout of news. I'm currently working on the novels still. However, because of recent things I've noticed, I just need to reiterate that this is MY story that I am writing. I first began the construction during my incarceration of 3-4 months. I still don't have a full title for the series. I just know the general titles for the individual books themselves. I'm going to look up when the copyright/trademark process takes place. I believe it's when the entire story is complete but I don't know for sure. Its just where I reside, there is always weird ass people staring over my shoulder or trying to find a seat behind me when I'm writing. Its even worse when I have to go to sleep and I want to work on the story a bit before going to sleep. I have resorted to shoving my notebooks into my underwear when I go to sleep. Regardless of copyright/trademark, my dna and fingerprint(penis print) are on those pages. Try to get passed that.
Also, I've decided to try to work on the story only when I'm outside of the residence place. While in the residence, I'll just brainstorm and nothing else. Call me paranoid but I don't really care. I just hate people trying to get over on someone else's hard work. I don't care if they've seen a sentence or two and think its interesting and want to read what they're able to. I just don't care fam. If you want ANYTHING from me, you will ask and that's that.
Tomorrow is my birthday. I got a happy birthday wish from one of my biggest crushes (if not THE biggest). Her name is IInjinka Ushijima(may have spelled her first name wrong, but not trying to go search right now SMH). Anyway, she was streaming live this morning, like she usually does. I had posted a video yesterday saying that my birthday wishes are:
1. Kylie Jenner makes a post on DECEMBER 17th, 2018
2. Miley Cyrus makes a post on DECEMBER 17th, 2018
3. Ushijima-san gives me a shoutout for my birthday.
1 down, 2 to go

My Youtube channel: Leading in the most Brutal & Savage Tekken 6 streams!!
|Posted on December 8, 2018 at 12:50 PM||comments (0)|
Its been a while. i've been mainly working all the time. Also, due to my living situation, my days kinda end at 7pm. So, I basically only have a few hours each day to write. Still, I've gotten a lot of things accomplished. I noticed some plot holes in my first story already. I'm in the process of re-writing the chapter. I'm working close to the original but, I'm making alterations as I see fit. Just what I needed, something to make getting this hard copy of the book into the computer go even slower. Besides the book(s) in the works, everything else has been good. I'm financial...stable, I say. I don't have access to ALL my favorite games, but atleast I can play Tekken 6 whenever I have access to my laptop. Theres a few more games on this thing but, it DOES NOT compare to my xbox 360 console or the ps3 I was given randomly. I'm still questing to save enough money to get another apartment. This time, I will think about my story a lot more. In my last apartment, i just smoked a lot and played xbox. If I wasn't doing either of those 2 things, I was eating/cooking. Otherwise, I was at work. Hopefully, i can get my apartment set up to tend to all my goals. I mean, at my last apartment, I had everything in the bedroom. It was right next to the kitchen. i didn't really need to use the living room. It was SO MUCH space going un-used. A week before I had to leave the apartment, i had set up a work station in the living room. There was a coffee table, and table for my laptop/canvas and a chair. I also put a light in there. it was awesome. i got some work done. Some work is better than the zero work i did when I was basically only living inside of the bedroom and kitchen. Yeah, I'm sure I'll have a work station set up the day I move in. Again, just keep wishing me good luck.

So, it's been 3 years. I had a little trouble remembering the website. I remembered the .webs part but I didn't remember the specifics. Anyway, I found the website and I'm back. I also have some amazing news!
So, although I've suffered some dramatic loses: over $300 USD in Magic the Gathering cards were thrown out, got arrested 2 seperate times, got a bunch of tickets, am currently on probation, had my tent ransacked causing me to be homeless in the most sense, other bad things, I've still managed to find some balance. Right now, I am currently working. I'm in the process of paying off a bunch of different debts (school, tickets, court fees, supervision fees, etc.). With all that debt, yeah I kind of need to jumpstart my income. I'm working a small part time job currently but I'm looking to build on that. My dream occupation would be in the construction field. Don't get me wrong, I'm still very much geared to pursue art and the creative process. Well, if I'm building houses and buildings thats also art and creation, isn't it? Still, that's something that I have develop a strong interest in and am going to activily pursue. There is a good amount of wealth on the other end of the hard work and studying that I will be putting in. That's not all though.
After all my years of just being a lone artist, I've tried to start, or be included in, serious projects. As you can see, none of those ever really panned out. So now, I have an idea of my own. Its an idea I had while in jail. Long story short, I'm going to pursue to writing and publishing of a trilogy of novels. I'm not going to even begin on any details but it would be wrong not to hint anything. So this is all I can say:
The book(s) will follow the lives of three seperate characters. A vast amount of time will pass throughout the span of the three novels. Still, every single event will connect to something else in the story. The stories, together, will form an amazing and satisfying read for readers of all ages. However, with the early stages of writing, it would seem that the targeted audience will be Young Adults and Adults. I'm thinking of releasing the book(s) as is. Then maybe going in and revising to make a Child Reader version of the story. It's an idea but I'm not 100% sure yet. I'm hoping that the book(s) will be a huge success and that I would be in a well enough standing that the Child Reader version of the book could be something that I can outsource for, or maybe something the sellers would be able to request when asking to have my novels at their stores.
This is a lot to take in, I'm sure. I'm kind of nervous. I don't ever really have stable standing now a days. However, its looking like I might be waking up in an apartment again sometime in the near future. I just need to hope that i don't get carried away with not having my parents' rules and expectations hovering over me. In the end, I've always seemed to do too much when given too much freedom. So, I've been trying to make better choices. Writing a book: that's a choice I think is benificial now and in the future. I'm always going to be the same person. But being the same person doesn't mean that your thoughts and/or actions have to remain symmetrical.
Cheers to new beginnings!
