The Accidental Post

Next chapter completion: 100% (Now in editing – It is currently 3:22am in my time zone so I am off to bed! Have a good night everyone! I got it all written tonight so chapter should hopefully be released for you by 2:00am GMT)
We’re up to four accidental posts so far. I hate my life! Anyway, all you email readers can thank Naeko for this one ^.^

Well, I have done it again. Accidentally posting what is written for the next chapter by accident before it is done.

So, I figure I will show you exactly how I manage to do this. Below I have attached a screen shot of a new post being made. Which will now turn into the one for the next chapter.

You will see how when replying to a comment, the ‘send’ button is very… Missable. While the ‘Publish’ button is conveniently located in a position where most comment threads have their ‘send’ or ‘post comment’ button. I am sure you can now understand how I make this silly mistake.

To date, this is the second time I have done this. ^.^

Edit, it won’t let me upload the image without messing around with it. So here is the link to the image.

    1. accidentally posted what I had written so far. When I replied to a comment, I clicked on ‘publish’ by accident which is conveniently close to the ‘send’ comment button.
      I’ve done this before…

    1. No spoon? lol
      Well, it really does come down to a preference thing. I find most published works are in the past tense. But I want to pursue my writing style and get even better at the present tense.

        1. Haha just so you know, I can edit you’re comments! If you did, you may find your malicious comment suddenly transforming into high praise to Mr Wolfin and his works! ^.^
          Hmm, I think there will be no trolling in this one lol

          1. Aww, and yeah, I know. I like the chapter! Edit this part out: every time you post an update it gets sent to our emails. So even if you erase the page *cough, cough snicker* we can still see it 😛

          2. God damn it! I just need to ignore all the comments when I’m busy with a writing session. Avoid the cause of the accidents.
            But wait, it sends the entire chapter to your email??

          3. Yep. Entire thing. Isn’t there a way to make it only send a preview of the chap? You’ll have to ask around, I’m not knowledgeable on wordpress. It isn’t that big of a deal, but I wasn’t playing when I said I COULD paste the entire thing (Both versions).

          4. Well, I will have to make it only send a preview through to emails. If it is in the settings somewhere, surely I can find it.
            Anyway, I am back to writing to see what I can get done.

  1. Jim Zoetewey who writes The Legion of Nothing has his set up so that when it updates it only shows the first few chapters then has a link to his page I’m sure you can find a way to do it as well.

    1. It should be about the same size. I have just been busy with work and some stuff lol. But i did 9% last night and that was on a day that I worked most of the day. If only I could do that every day, then a chapter a week could possibly return
