    Delays in updates for Rage.

    As I feared, as we go into the second half of Rage of a queen, updates will not be as clockwork regular. I did have to sit down and rewrite most of the second part, and I just first today sent chapter 12 to the editor, but I'm hoping it will be ready sometime this week, but I much rather delay the update and give you a good chapter, than a poorly edited mess if I just let my own editing suffice.

    Apologies for late update.

    I noticed I didn't press the publish button for chapter 9, of Rage yesterday, but that has been fixed.

    So what's after Rage?

    Now that I've revealed that I've already finished writing nearly half of Rage, the sequel to last of the dark ponies, I probably should touch on what happens after that story is done and published.

    Status on Stories.

    I am still very much alive, creatively though, I kind of just went quiet mostly because work got rather busy.

    I'm still writing Rage and I'm already finishing up chapter 12, which does mean I'm very close to the halfway point of the story (you may have noticed I don't really write that long stories, they rarely go past 20+ chapters)

Oh right I have this thing. · 10:12am Apr 12th, 2015

I keep forgetting.

Really though, things just have been up and down with me, especially since for a whole year I was working at a temp job with a high hopes of getting a permanent position there, in fact we in my group were pretty much spoon fed by both supervisors and our temp agency that over 99% of the temps usually got permanent positions. So yeah, we were pretty much all running on "oooh soon we'll get a permanent job."

I stuck for a year in a low paying job with the aim to get a permanent position there, no supervisor complained about me, I was constantly given positive feedback for my job. I even submitted to their regulations of trimming my beard neatly (I tend not to do that too well).

Then in January it just all crash and burned. The company just suddenly pulled out the contract from the temp agency, since it was going automatic with the positions we were working in. I applied time and a time again for a permanent position there, heard nothing and then suddenly in January I was told all of us temp workers would be losing our jobs by the end of February, unless the Temp Agency could find us new positions.

February came and went and I heard nothing from either the company or the temp agency.

Yeah, I'm effectively jobless again and have been for just over a month, inspiration takes a bit of a nose dive when you feel betrayed, especially since I worked my bloody butt off to appease their standards and that practically promised permanent position.

Don't get me wrong, I never felt entitled to get it, I don't think I was owed one. I just feel like I was lied to, that they just dangled a promise of a permanent job in front of us to keep us from going away and seek out other jobs. I HATE being lied to, I don't mind white lies, I don't mind small ones, but outright blatant lying, I hate those. I have a bad experienced with those from my youth, it just burns me when I'm lied to like this.

Maybe they didn't really lie, maybe I'm being over dramatic about this, but yeah this is pretty much the reason I've not been creatively active. I decided to work my ass off to get a job where a promise of one was dangled in front of me like a carrot on a bloody stick.

I haven't abandoned my stories, I just put them on ice while trying to get some steady income back into my life.

Well back to the job hunt.
