    This Blog is About The Immortal's Burden

    tl;dr up front: No, it isn't getting a sequel unless I get an idea I feel is good enough to follow it up.

    So I've seen some comments asking me to make a sequel for The Immortal's Burden, and they have a couple upvotes, so it seems like at least a few people want this. I'm sorry to bear bad news, but that's probably not going to happen for a couple reasons.

    What's Half an Inch Long and Stuck in My Root Canal?

    Gosh, it's been an interesting two weeks.

    In terms of good news, I got a chapter of Hourglass posted, cementing myself into a monthly update schedule! I don't think I've ever been this proud to be this pathetic. Hopefully when the story picks up, so will my schedule. Hopefully. Fingers crossed.

    Like Sands Through The Hourglass, This Is My Mental State

    Okay, so at the start of November I started posting my story Hourglass for NaNoWriMo. I already had some chapters written when I published the story so I could have a buffer in case I missed some writing in my planned every-other day schedule. I had preplanned individual chapters far ahead to reduce time in brainstorming and writing.

    A Belated Thank-You

    Right then, I'm finally in my spring break and my uni work-load has dropped to zero, so I should probably sit down to write a thank-you blog for The Immortal's Burden now that it's been...

    Seven months? What?

    Well. Uhhh. I certainly feel silly now.

tl;dr up front: No, it isn't getting a sequel unless I get an idea I feel is good enough to follow it up.

So I've seen some comments asking me to make a sequel for The Immortal's Burden, and they have a couple upvotes, so it seems like at least a few people want this. I'm sorry to bear bad news, but that's probably not going to happen for a couple reasons.

First off, my writing schedule is somewhere between horrid and nonexistent. That's pretty much all on me and my tendency to do too many things at once and end up able to focus on none of them. Working on that. Second, and more importantly, is that I don't have a good idea for a sequel. I don't want to write something just trying to capitalize on the success of something else, even if that something else is something I did. If I ever write a sequel it will be because I thought up an idea that I think is worth writing, and that's just not where my focus is right now.

Honestly, I don't know how I'd continue it. Sure the reporter gets away, but that's more of a joke than it is a hook for a continuation of the story. What could I do from there that's funny enough to make a whole story about and that isn't just rehashing what I already wrote?

This isn't to say I'm never going to write anything like The Immortal's Burden again. No, I've got multiple ideas kicking around in my head like it, and one that has been half-finished for like two years and I just can't get a dang ending for nnnnnngggh-

Sorry if this news is disappointing to people, but I'd rather disappoint by not making something than by making something soulless.

Also sorry to whoever has actually read Hourglass about my straight lack of updating. Things have been... hard. Yes, I know that's not a great excuse, and yes, I am working on that too. I'm working on a lot of stuff. I've got so many irons in these fires.

Quality over quantity is good, I think. I'd rather be writing something my heart is in than writing something purely because I could.

I'll look forward to that upcoming story if it ever comes out, and if not that's okay too. Write with your heart, no matter how long it takes.
