    I am a slooooow writer

    This final draft is diverging a little from the previous one, so I need to rework some chapters (especially in this middle chunk). Going to break with the weekly posting structure and start putting the chapters up when they're done. The next one still needs a bit more work, so look for it sometime this week or next--sorry for the delays, but the weekly/biweekly schedule is starting to get a bit

    One more week

    Had an extremely busy week and haven't had time to give a final polishing pass to the next chapter, so I'm going to delay it till next sunday. Apologies! We'll resume the biweekly pace next week.

    I'm considering a longer break near the end of act 2 to get all of act 3 polished so I can return to the weekly posting schedule for the final set of chapters.

    As always, thanks for reading!

    New posting schedule

    I liked having the extra time to do final proofreading and minor rewrites so much that I'm going to make it a regular thing. I'll post chapters biweekly from here on out. There are still a couple later chapters that I'm not super pleased with, so I might take a little extra time once we get closer to them to tweak them more.

    Thanks for reading!

    Going to be busy with social events for the next two weekends, so I'll be taking a short break on the chapter postings. Chapters will resume going up on the 27th of August.

    Thicker Than Water is a go!

    After a lot longer than it really should have taken, I'm finally at a point where I can start publishing Thicker Than Water. I plan to put up about one chapter a week, although we're starting off with two because they're so closely intertwined. There are 27 chapters and an epilogue in total, at a little less than 200k words. I'm still tweaking things here and there so the final wordcount might go

December Update · 3:46am Dec 31st, 2018

Oof. Well, the holidays were a little busier than anticipated, but now the schedule's clear. I hope to get going again soon, and have made a lot of meta progress with outlines etc but not a whole lot of chapter writing. Going to start working back up to 1000 w/day this month.

Also starting to casually look for new jobs. The current one isn't miserable or anything, it's just boring me to death. Thinking of looking out west, but we'll see if that's feasible. For now, Cleveland's where I stay.

Anyway, sorry about the lack of progress, going to knuckle down and get to it from now on.
