So, about that update.... · 3:52pm
I really need to apologize to all of you... I've been taking far longer than I should have to update stories. Things just aren't as simple as they used to be. Back when I was working on "Brothers," I used to be able to output a chapter a day! (A lower quality chapter that was half as long as my standard chapter now, but a chapter a day, nonetheless.) I was recently working on "Daughter of Chaos" and lost a bunch of progress, "Penn and Stone" is just trying to get up off the ground, and "Carnival Cat vs. Pennington Inkwell" kinda left me stumped in terms of what order events should go in.
Of course none of those are good excuses, so I should just give it to you straight:
So, hopefully, with finals coming up in the next few weeks, I can get my act together and start doing things right! Including regular updates, again! I'm going to make it my goal to update one story at least once a week, (except perhaps during finals) and get myself back on track with my writing.
On a related note, I think I'm changing my major! I was hoping to study physics and astronomy, but I'm now considering an English major and going into teaching. (My father is actually an accountant-turned-math-teacher, so I have a good example.) If I were to take up a job as a teacher, I'd be working in what I love (writing/literature), I'd have time to work on novels I've been wanting to write, and I'd get summer vacations!
Yeah, I'm totally in denial of any and all downsides to this plan.
In OTHER other news, what would you all think if I casually worked on a RWBY fic on some other site? It would likely be shameless knock-off similar to Happy Adventuring, focusing on Weiss trying to deal with the strange affections of another student, while also exploring the idea and repercussions of a team that simply despises one another and refuses to function as a team whatsoever. I discovered that the most relaxing thing I can do in terms of taking a break from my "FIM" fics is to write fanfiction for OTHER fandoms! Funny, right? Leave your thoughts on that in the comments.
Well, I'm going to try to take advantage of Black Friday to get some new pony merch by walking three miles to the local mall. I hope you all had a happy Thanksgiving, and good luck getting your favorite items in stock! (I'm more of a window shopper.)
So, updates to at least one story per every week is my new goal.
Happy Adventuring, everyone!
