Hello again, everypony! · 4:06pm
It's been a long time coming, but Chapter 6 is finally on it's way out the door. I recently had a few epiphanies with where I wanted to go and what I wanted to do with the story and the result has been fantastic. Currently, I estimate that I have around 3-5 chapters worth of story lined out.
All I have to do is write it, and boy have I been doing that.
Between today and yesterday I have put down 5400 words of Chapter 6, and have plenty more to go. This may not seem like a lot to some, but seeing as how I try to keep my chapters somewhere around 6k-8k words, that's a pretty big chunk of writing.
Best part? I'm not done writing today, either. Just taking a break. I hope to have the basics put down by the end of the day, spend the rest of the week fleshing it out and editing, and get it out to be pre-read by the weekend. If that all goes well, expect to see the new chapter shortly after!
As for my absence, well... it was caused by several things. Rough spot in life. Lack of motivation. Lack of inspiration. Being sidetracked by other things that just seemed more entertaining than writing did. All of those, but it feels good to be back in the swing of things. It feels very good to be putting words down for my story again, and I don't see that changing anytime soon. I'm probably going to have to spend a few weeks homeless here shortly due to financial issues, but I have a laptop and there are Starbucks around and the story will continue!
If you're reading this: Thanks. Thank you for sticking with me, either via hope that I'll actually get off my ass and write more or by the simple fact that unfavoriting BSC would take effort, I don't care. You're still here regardless, and for that I thank you.
Cheers, and have a happy New Year!
