    Hoers Fæme

    And lo, in the darkness of that most perilous age, the Year of our Lord 2020, as pestilence and wroth did grip the land, a writing-man strode forth unto the Barcast, slaying not less than a hundred and twenty minutes that stood before him. With his left hand he poured out a carafe of endless caffeination; with his right, he led a pone of stony gray, whose anger

    The simple question of "How you guys doing?" ain't as prosaic as it used to be.

    This is cool, new, and fits the mood

    Echoes in the Well, pt.3

    I know. "Again? Who cares! It's cut stuff from an old fic!"

    I've realized something, though, as I've been gathering this up: I'm doing this for me. I'm laying something to rest. I'm letting go of a lingering sense of what might-have-been, which in its own way is a part of the story of what ended-up-being.

    Maybe it's even the last part of the story.

    Echoes in the Well, pt.2

    As I mentioned last time: there's a mountain of cut content from To Serve In Hell, including some nuggets that I very much regretted having to take out. I've already shared a couple of those stronger moments with you, and discussed the thought process that lead to both adding and ultimately removing them.

Quick poll [vote in comments] · 6:05pm May 22nd, 2016

As chapter 3 of To Serve In Hell becomes increasingly presentable, the question becomes whether you'd prefer to see one update sooner, or if I should batch up some number of chapters with the goal of being able to release them on some kind of set schedule.

So if you have a second, please share your thoughts by thumbing-up your choice below.

Answer #1: I want new chapters as soon as I can get them!

Answer #2: Save them up for a coordinated release later!

Answer #3: Taco taco taco taco...

They all have really good reasons to want to go...

3963405 lol, I have no ruddy clue what I'll do if it's a 3-way tie, or if taco wins. :derpytongue2:

I don't know what to tell you other than "I'm the taco vote you have so far." :trollestia:

Hmmm, usually I'm the kind of person to go with Answer #1 but Answer #2 has a certain appeal as well. How many chapters are we talking here in Answer#2? If it's more than 3 chapters, then Answer #2 all the way!:D If not, Answer #1 then:)

I'm voting taco. Mostly because answers one and two can honestly be sort of similar. I mean lets say you write like six more chapters and release one a week or day or whatever. When it comes to the posting as soon as possible part that assumes that you're posting as soon as you've finished writing. However, one could argue that if you have a set schedule to finish a chapter then you're still possibly doing that anyway, especially if life outside of writing starts kicking in and you haven't written well ahead.

Also, I kind of want tacos right now.

Tacooooooooooooooooooo! :trollestia:

3964278 My favorite thing to get at the food truck! :pinkiehappy:

Thank you, all who have voted or commented thus far. :twilightsmile: I was expecting answer #1 to be the clear winner, but it hasn't been. I appreciate the chance to validate (or invalidate) that assumption. With that being the case, I'm probably inclined to take the answer #2 path.

3963787 Indeed, it's going to be many more chapters. I didn't quite realize I was starting a novel/novella-length work when I banged-out that first chapter, but that's where the ideas keep taking me. Thanks for letting me know what you think in more detail!

3964038 That's not a bad point. And indeed, I am expecting RL to have some big intrusions upon my writing time this summer.

3964278 Unfortunately, I can't see a good way to inject tacos into the story without things getting weird. :derpytongue2:

We're still in 3 way tie territory here... :trollestia:

3965926 Oh, how they mock me... :raritydespair: :trollestia:
