The last television station

It was Wednesday 31st of October, as the calendar stared back at him, with the year 2035 printed on with large black letters, or that was his feeling at this time in his life, when he did get his morning coffie during a short break he was taking. This day was marked with a red circle and exclamation mark. It was the last day his television station that Steven worked for would be brodcasting a televison signal the old way over the cable networks his televison station was brodcasting over. That day was today and it had arrived all too soon for him, he was not prepared for this change. He had just been working on the television station for the past ten years, but he loved his job and everything about it. He loved the technology around it and the people he was working with. It was coming to an end, the internet had won and now everything was online and everyone who cared had internet access. Not everyone had internet access, but those people also did not have any television, or if they did have an television in there homes did not watch any television station and did not bother to buy any cable subscription. Over the air transmission had ended several years before and everything was moved to the internet following it.

News, information and entertainment, it was all there now. The cable company they used to carry there signal was closing down it’s remaing channels and moving to internet only over cable. So was his television station, but with the television part of it missing. Now they would just buy and offer content over the internet. They would still do some daily shows, talk shows mostly about daily affairs and offer them both live and online for later viewing over the internet. It was not the same as brodcasting over cable or air. That at least was the feeling Steven had, but many people in the world did celebrate this change and found it long overdue to have taken place. After the end of social networks several decades before people had been communicating differently and more personally, it was now closer to what the world once was before for the advance of technology and the internet.

Steven knew that he was not going to stop progress, that was something he had just to accept. He was at least not out of a job yet, he was now going to oversee the servers and computers that are going to be needed to maintain streaming service on the internet. It was a big job and slightly higher pay and he was at least happy about the higher pay he was now getting. Such as it was this was still adjustment for him and he was going to learn new skills and technology, since computers never had been his thing. He was able to use them fully, but they never interested him and never got into the newest software or hardware for that reason. He had taken classes and seminars for the past few months to catch up to newest technology on the internet and how to work on IPv6 connections and such things. He learned this since it was part of his job now.

He finished drinking his cup of coffie and let this thoughts pass him by, he looked at the clock on the wall and did go back to work. This was his last day at real television station and tomorrow would come with new challenges and problems.

Stories in the work

I am currently working on stories for this website. It takes a while for me to think up an good stories since I like to go around with the details a little bit. While I do not know exactly when the first story is going to be ready I am already working on an idea in my mind. So I hope that the wait is not going to be too long for the story to be ready for publishing on this website.

The story about writing a story

So here I am, not having written a single word in my stories for a while now. I am also doing a rewrite of short story that I did finish writing a while ago. I felt that rewrite was needed, since what I had written was not what I needed to write. While I do not know how long the rewrite is going to take place, it is going to take place.

Such as things go for me. I am not a fast writer, since I like to think about the details of my stories, since the devil is in the detail is the saying. It takes me a great deal of time to think about what I am going to write next, even if I rewrite it at later time.

So, what is keeping me from writing, it is several things. First off, it is the fact I am now struggling with money. It is not because I have so much bills, I don’t. It is because I have so low income and there is always certain level of payment that I have to make. Like rent, electricity, water and so on. It is so bad that I hardly have any money to buy food, I thank for that I live not far from Germany. Where I can buy food cheaper than in Denmark.

This problem, along with the worries constant money worries that I have make it hard for me to write a story. In fact, it makes it hard for me to write anything of value this days. That is bad, since writing increases my income in the end. So I am now in some type of catch-22 status and I am unsure when I am going to get out of it. I might only get out of this the hard way, and that is not going to be easy for me. For me, peace of mind is something that I need in order to write. I am not saying I need trouble free life, but having worries ruining my day or month is not something that works for me when it comes to writing.

Creating a story is a long progress, for everyone who starts a writing career. Many people do not understand this, why I do not know. While I am slowly working on my stories, I plan on starting other types of books. Those books are not fictional so they are easier to work with as such. Many of them are just going to be around my opinion on people, events and other things. I do not know if it is going to solve my money problems, it might do so. It depends on if people are going to buy those books or not. They might not do so and if nothing is sold, I do not get any income at all. That is what being writer is about.

Whatever the case, I am just going adjust to it. That might not be easy, far from it. So far, so good as they say. Even if I can hardly afford any food this month, this has happened for several months now so I should be used to it. But I can’t say it is a compatible idea knowing that I am so broke that I can hardly afford paying for food. This is also the price I pay being from Iceland since my problems have its origins in bad economic policies in Iceland. But that is something I am going to write a book about soon, people in other countries need to know what is actually happenin in Iceland. At least my view on it and opinion.

There is one thing that I have learned since I figured out that I wanted to be a writer and actually started to write for real. Creation process is not a direct line, it has its twist, turns and failures. While I do not know when I am going to publish my first ebook and my first printed book in the category of fictional books. I know it is going to happen one day, it is however going to take some time for me until I finish my first fictional book. I am going to publish other books earlier, since they are less work and do not involve creating a story, since I have opinion already formed and I am used to write my opinion down in blog posts already. Both in Icelandic and English.

This is my story on writing books so far. It is not long or interesting. What I have written so far mostly short stories in Icelandic. I have not written many stories in English, that is going to change in next few years to months as shift my focus to writing more English stories, rather than Icelandic stories.

About the stories I am going to post here

The stories I am going to post here are going to be different types and of different lengths. The reason is that I am mostly going to use this format to practice. But without practice I do not advance in the art of telling a story the proper and good way.

This is all going to be a interesting progress for me. I am already good at writing. But what I am not is to write stories. Since what I have been writing about my own opinions and that is several light years away from telling a story properly. I have already started my work on the first story that I am going to publish here. When it is going to be ready I do not know yet. But it is going to take some time to write it, edit it and then publish it. But the idea is there and is now being worked on. I also do not work on stories all the time. Since that would put me off writing for good. That is how this works for me.

This is not a blog

Welcome to my new web site. This is not a blog. Even if I use the blog format. I use the blog format since I am familiar with it. I know how to use it and it is simple. This is a place for me to publish my short stories and longer stories also. Since this is not a blog. I am not going to allow any comments on this web site. I do not see any reason for me to do so. People can load the stories I am going to publish here into there Kindle devices if they have one. Free of charge as such. But instead I am going to have Google Adsense and Amazon advertisement on this web site. Along with donation button if people want to support me for my work. I am also looking into the option that people can download stories from this site as pdf documents. But I am going to add that later once I have done my proper research into it.

I am going to post stories about whatever I think about. When this stories are going to appear on this web site I do not know. Since I do not know when I have a story ready. But when I do. I am going to post it here. This are stories that I am not going to publish as ebooks just yet. This is mostly to experiment with ideas. Something that I might turn into a book later on if it is a good idea. This is also a about practice. I am not going to be a good writer if I do not practice. This is a good platform to do so in my own time. Since it is a lot of work to publish a story, even if it is just a short story. I am also going to announce here in this site when I publish my stories and where they can be bought. But mostly I am going to publish with Amazon. But people still need to know where to buy my books when I publish them.

I do not have any idea how often this web page is going to be updated. It is going to depend on when my stories are ready. But I am going to write them up in LibreOffice. Then I am going to post them here. Since I need time to write the stories and make the necessary edits before I publish them here. This is going to be a work in progress how I work with my stories and also this web page. So changes are going to take place with time as this develops for me.

My first story is going to appear here soon. I am currently planning it. How long it is going to be I do not know yet. What it is about I have even less idea at the moment. But I am going to do my best with writing it. But I won’t publish a story until I feel it is ready. No later and not earlier then that.
