    Thanksgiving Weekend

    So Thanksgiving weekend was kind of awesome. I got to spend time with family that I haven't seen in ages along with my immediate family. I got to go on a bit of a road trip (with said immediate family) and eat at places I've never been (some pretty darned awesome places, in fact).

    I wouldn't be making this post if it was just a simple case of, "Oh, I started writing again." Whoopdee doo. I've done that plenty and published, what? Four chapters in total so far?

    Nope. I'm here to tell you that I'm back because I just finished the final revisions on Moon's Shadow Chapter 001. That means that, as soon as it's approved, you'll be able to see a link to it on my sidebar.

    Remember when I said that I'd have the first chapter of the new story posted three weeks ago? Yeah... that was before everything went to heck... again.

    It seems to be a common pattern in my life, actually.

    So I know I promised you guys that fic last week, but I sent it to some beta readers and they gave me some really good notes. Unfortunately, one of the beta readers got a little busy and couldn't give me his complete notes until today. I'll be working with the changes he suggested tomorrow and then I'll adjust it to be able to post it on FiMFiction (it's a Word document and so I obviously

Oh my glog is the editing of the first chapter taking a long time. The first chapter started out as 15 pages and I may end up doubling that before I'm done. And all that writing takes time.

I guess the good news for the future is that this past week hasn't been too good for editing, but this next week is looking good.

I am thinking, though, that I might need to find some additional time for editing. I'm lucky if I average a page per day.

So in the interest of making chapter one not be absurdly long and getting the next part of the story available soon, I was considering splitting the chapter into two or more chapters. The real problem is this: Where do I split it? I considered splitting it when I first wrote it, but there are only a few places that could possibly work, they're near the beginning or the end, and I'd need to write around the chapter splits rather than let them happen naturally.

So, in the end, it comes down to this: Quality work takes time. And I want this to be quality work. I'm only near the beginning of the first chapter, which I think required a lot more rewriting than later parts will. Furthermore, there are significant amounts that I will be shortening or cutting because they just don't need to be there.

It's still going to be longer than it was originally (and it was already pretty friggin' long), but it won't be absurdly long and it will hopefully be ready to go within the next week and a half to two weeks. I seriously doubt it will be done by my next status update.
