    Ermagherd... The Interloper...

    So, I haven't updated in a while. Mostly because of the Army keeping me busy for a few weeks and work making me close up shop a lot lately, which means I go home and veg out before going to sleep.

    However, not all was lost in that time.

    Welp....

    I finished those chapters I was working on, which means I now have to work on a few more chapters from the ground up. But I feel as if I've gotten a system down pat. Which is good, it means I can add more to the story more efficiently.

    Hell, within a week I managed to add over 17,000 words and like 4 chapters. I think that's pretty good.

    More work done on story.

    So, Like I mentioned in another blog post. I work on about 3 chapters at a time, putting in a rough outline and fleshing them out from there in a chronological order. It also helps to keep me from painting myself into a corner and having to use the "Deus ex Machina" which I REALLY hate.

    Anyways, a TINY spoiler:
    Chapter 6- Burn the Witch ~35%
    Chapter 7- Rusty Cage ~25%

    I'm Interloping on through, again.

    Next chapter of the rewrite is up. I originally intended to put it up last week with about an 1800 word count and use it as a transition chapter, but I decided to flesh it out. Which in the end felt like a good thing.

    The Interloper

    Well, I've currently restarted work on the Interloper and a good portion has changed. I'm currently working on Chapters 3, 4, and 5 as I type this up. The rewritten chapters have been posted and the great Maromar for volunteering to clean up the mess I make as I write this story. And definitely thanks to the readers willing to read the drivel!

Welp.... · 8:31am Jun 3rd, 2014

I finished those chapters I was working on, which means I now have to work on a few more chapters from the ground up. But I feel as if I've gotten a system down pat. Which is good, it means I can add more to the story more efficiently.

Hell, within a week I managed to add over 17,000 words and like 4 chapters. I think that's pretty good.

As for those that like spoilers, I love Norse mythology and it's going to get some HEAVY use in this story. The original story as was outlined in a previous blog post still stands, I want to explore interactions. Specifically expanding the interactions that my four Terrans had with the Changelings.

But that's down the road.

Some of the things I want to touch on:
-I changed the names of the Coventry races. Notziy Achat which is Hebrew for 'feathered ones' and the core race to the Jormungandri.
-what Coventry means: to live in a state of ostracism
-what Covenant means: a promise or a pact.


Also, I'd like feedback on this particularly. I'm on the fence about the first person narrated portions. It's hard to write first person, and I feel it just doesn't flow naturally. So please leave some feedback about that.

And again, thanks for reading.

I find your story to be excellent so far. My only problems have been with small misspellings you've had, and the fact that chapters don't come out as often as I'd like outside of the last week(but there's nothing to do about that one without sounding like an asshole.)
