    Thoughts on Returning and Moving Forward

    I'm sure there's more than a few people who lament, maybe even curse, that I pretty much stopped regular writing and updates of my flagship project. I wouldn't really blame anybody for those kind of sentiments - anger, abandonment, resentment, disappointment, and so on. I know there's also plenty of people who will quickly counter with the claim that nobody owes readers completed stories and one

    Plans for 2020

    They say the difference between an amateur writer and a professional writer is that amateurs wait for inspiration, professionals sit down and get it done. That alone is why I've always considered an amateur and nothing more. Losing motivation to write has plagued me before, and its why New Sun Rises is taking so damn long to finish.

    An Update

    With any luck, I think I can have the latest chapter ready within the next week.

    Just figured I'd let people know in advance so it's not too sudden of a surprise to realize that I still exist.

    And no, I don't have any real excuse for why it's taken me this long to get back to working on this. If there was a box for bad authors to sit in, I would be there right now.

    Long Overdue

    Hey there people who might actually still care about this one author.

    Guess it's been a real long time since you guys have heard a peep outta me, and it's probably high time I say something. Now don't worry, this isn't the much dreaded 'after careful deliberation, I've decided to retire from writing' sort of post. Things haven't gotten that bad. Yet.

New Years Update · 10:35am Jan 26th, 2023

I figured I may as well provide an update for the tens of you possibly waiting for some news. I am certain you have all been waiting with bated breath.

Hope the holidays have been good for you lot. Naturally, working in healthcare means winter months tend to be butts because that's when things like influenza like to run rampant. Plus this new thing called COVID that people have been talking about. You've probably heard of it.

Anyways, onto business.

You'll be happy to know that since my last blog post on the subject, I have formulated a new plan for how 'A New Sun Rises' will proceed and end, and I have been writing in the meanwhile. I've finished four chapter drafts so far and progress is being made on the fifth. I have no idea how many it'll take to get to the end, but I'm estimating somewhere around 8 to 10 in total. And I still worry it might feel rushed. We'll see.

Now as opposed to my usual method of writing and posting, I've decided that I want all of these chapters finished before I start posting. That's so I can ensure I am happy with the full and final product and I don't inadvertently write myself into a corner, but also to avoid giving people any further disappointment with false starts. Rest assured, when the chapters start posting, new chapters will release on a regular schedule until the story's conclusion.

Writing has been... sluggish, though, if I'm honest. As I mentioned, work has been busy so I don't think I've had a chance to do any writing during lulls at work in months. It's basically left me with only time after work and weekends to write, and maybe I'm just getting older, but I'm finding myself with less and less time and energy for writing these days.

I'm getting this done, though. Somehow.

I sympathize. Anyway, we look forward to whatever comes.

Believe in the us that believe in you!

You have my sympathies. Best wishes with both the story and with real life, yeah? ^_^

Do not force and overwork yourself! You are very valuable<3
And I must add that I am extremely happy to see my all time favorite fanfiction getting picked up again. Take all the time you need! Do what you are happy with.
Thank you! :heart:

That lack of time and energy is real. Hopefully you’ll get more rest when spring hits. And thanks for what you’ve written so far. It’s an immensely fun tale.

I’m glad you’re going to finish and I look forward to it.

Thanks for sticking around to tell your tale!
After this, hopefully more stories could be finished!
Good luck writing!

dropping in again to give more :heart:
