    6. The Best Laid Plans

    Honestly, I didn't think it would go that awry, in regards to my updating schedule. My second semester of University started, I was busy and pushed back an update a week. Followed by another week, and then another. And true to the snowball effect, it really didn't stop until...well, it has not even stopped as of yet. But with University Exams upcoming ("Pssh, who even needs to study") and

    5. Updates, floods, and exams (or any combination thereof)

    Well, I finally got up "Chapter 1" of In Her Shadows. Between University exams and study, my life has been largely consumed by mundane things. Not fun. And to compound things, a large winter storm blew up from Antarctica and hammered the South Island of New Zealand, especially the Otago region. We received heavy rain and hail, which over-saturated ground and caused mudslides; and massive

    4. Delays and Exams

    Ah, apologies...that deadline I set? Yeah...exams and assignments came up. I was about 3,400 words through it when I seriously began to question my actual introduction to the story I was trying to do, and then got blindsided with a last minute assignment. So I'll have the post up in the later stages of this week, and will resume writing and have a post up soon after exams. Sorry about that again.

    3. University and Delays

    As it turns out, the 'crunch' phase of a University Semester is easily the most hectic time and stressful of times at University. I wouldn't have known that for sure if this were not my first semester. Fortunately, I've bumbled my way though largely unscathed. I may even pass Statistics (quite honestly, I don't know if I will), but other than that, my other classes are going well. But in any

    2. Establishment

    Well, I've got the first two chapters of stories I've had on my mind up on the site, and I've established a basic presence on the site. So far, so good. So, what I have in mind right now is to post updates for one story, and then the other - hence giving me time to brainstorm for either. I'm not sure on a timeline for posts: I'll be working on these between University and life - with any luck,

6. The Best Laid Plans · 9:40am Oct 16th, 2013

Honestly, I didn't think it would go that awry, in regards to my updating schedule. My second semester of University started, I was busy and pushed back an update a week. Followed by another week, and then another. And true to the snowball effect, it really didn't stop until...well, it has not even stopped as of yet. But with University Exams upcoming ("Pssh, who even needs to study") and summer work upcoming following that, I have full intentions to get cracking on the actual substance of my stories. To this end, I'd like to thank my official wall to bounce things against, Firery Dawn. (Brainstorming is to commence over beer and Helicopters in Gmod.)

And with that, I'd like to apologize for my...lax updating of my stories (to say the very least), and my equally atrocious noting of what was going on here to the people who follow my work.

Also a question: I'm curious about how people go about timelines for updates. How much time do you ideally give yourself to brainstorm, write a story out, have it read over and critiqued before posting?
