Status Update! · 3:55am
Right, between work and class I've had less time to write than I'd like, but that was expected.
A Wild Problem appeared! What do you want to do?
I got sick, not horrendously sick, but bad enough to make writing difficult and work impossible. Not enough to stop me from writing, but the sudden loss of interwebs for a full week put that hope to rest. I had about a week where I got a whole lot of nothing accomplished on the story.
So instead of being in the rough draft approach, we're still pumping it out. I've got about 6k words down that are mildly edited so far. I see about another 6 to 8k words before this thing is done. I can't give time estimates because I can already foresee this chapter going through some serious editing before it's up to my standards, let alone my editors.
Current highlights include: Shadow Play turning a Shadow Wolf's head into chunky salsa, Cumulus Rose cutting a Shadow Wolf in half with a single swing, Emeris dropping a proper Swords Like Stars and not just a quick and dirty version. I've got about a half dozen other good moments planned for the chapter and hopefully one solid WOW moment.
So yeah! A bit behind where I'd wanted to be on the writing of the chapter, but it's still a coming! No writers blocks or anything like that, just life putting speedbumps in the way.
