Nightmare Nights · 4:51pm Oct 18th, 2016

It's hardly unusual for me to go to a convention- after all, that's where most of my income originates, in a dealer's room.

But I've decided to go to Dallas this weekend, using credit card points, for Nightmare Nights... and NOT sell things.

(Well, that last bit was decided for me. I applied as a vendor months ago and wasn't accepted.)

Stay on target... almost there... · 4:07am Jul 12th, 2017

Today I flew the second mission for the next chapter of CSP. All I have left to write is the outcome of that flight and the epilogue, and another 25,000-ish word chapter will be complete, or at least ready for final edits.

Expect a Changeling Space Program update next week.

Time to edit the *yay* out of this. · 5:22pm Jul 13th, 2017

New Changeling Space Program chapter completed.

Current draft: 25,508 words.

I will spend my non-sales time this weekend at my booth at Delta H Con editing, getting viewpoints more consistent, punching up descriptions, and definitely looking for deadwood to trim.

But I don't anticipate finding much.

And once I complete this final pass, the thing will get posted.

The first reading of one of my fics! · 4:34pm May 7th, 2018

Fanfiction Reader has rendered a voice-synthesis version of Changeling Space Program on YouTube! The program doesn't have any sense of timing, and it stumbles badly trying to pronounce unfamiliar words, but it provides a way to read (or re-read) the story without staring at a screen!

On broken algorithms and ego-boos. · 4:30am Feb 19th, 2018

I've been eyeing the "rating" ranking on Changeling Space Program recently.

This morning it was the 13th most popular fic on FimFiction... going by a ratio of up-votes to down-votes.

I'll repeat that: #13 on the list of most popular fics.

The thing is, it was also the only one in the top fifty or so with a three-digit up-vote count. It was that high because only three people had ever down-voted it.

CSP update imminent. · 5:43am Dec 20th, 2016

25,953 words.

Chapter 10's rough draft is complete.

Three flights.

Two re-entries.

One musical number.

And several references, hints, and Chekov's Guns.

Tomorrow I edit, and hopefully post, this monster.

Stay tuned, space fans.

That's a lot of missions. · 1:56am Jul 22nd, 2017

So, today I flew the last mission for the next chapter of Changeling Space Program- the mission Luna gets a tourist ride on.

I just now noticed, however, that I skipped a number in my mission-ing, so I'm going through the text now to re-number.

The last mission I flew is now CSP Mission Twenty.

Preview #1: CSP Chapter 12 · 3:26am Dec 27th, 2017

So I'm writing and posting little previews of things to my Patreon (https://www.patreon.com/KrisOverstreet) to get more donors. I'll have most of January to work on things, and I'm going to open my focus up for a vote.

First: the beginning of the next chapter of CSP.

CSP: I Can't Satisfy Anybody About the Footnotes · 4:04am Sep 1st, 2017

First, I came through Harvey all right. I was well away from the winds for landfall, and I was on high ground with good drainage for the 25+ inches of rain that fell at my house. And, thankfully, one of the roads leading out of where I live reopened just barely in time for me to travel to this weekend's convention for selling things.

Second, today I had yet another complaint about the footnotes.

Update on writing challenge, and next game stream. · 4:22am January 22nd

Well, I lost ten days of writing to the Arizona trip, but even without that I'm way behind my 1500-word-per-day goal. But I'll keep plugging at it.

One major problem is finding away around a plot block in the current-in-progress chapter of Changeling Space Program. I'm almost there, but it's not quite ready to write in my head. I've been making slow progress on other projects, but nothing ready to post here yet. Sneak peeks are available for Patreon supporters.

Get Artwork, Help a Friend Out · 5:31pm Jan 25th, 2017

The artist who drew the pics of Occupant, Goddard and the Minotaur rocket scientists I shared last month lost her job recently, and her employer hasn't reported the dismissal to her state unemployment office. She's offering a special deal for commissions right now:

Sneak preview of CSP Chapter 11 for Patrons Only · 2:06am Apr 27th, 2017

Just as the title says. Go check my Patreon and pledge if you want to see the evening before the launch of Mission R1, well before it gets published!

I've just about finished the first draft of R1 itself, which isn't nearly as funny as what goes before. I thought very seriously about ending the chapter there, but R2 doesn't really make a good chapter by itself. So, likely over this weekend, I will fly R2 in KSP (I've already designed and tested the rocket in-atmosphere) and press forward.

Added CSP Scene: Pinkie Pie is So RNDom · 4:31pm Jul 17th, 2017

So, the first couple of constructive pieces of criticism of the new chapter hit home, and I'm writing this to address, if not totally fix, the problem they rightfully pointed out... well, fix it as much as I can without basically ripping out a third of the chapter, which isn't going to happen.

Haycartes moves forward. · 4:11am Apr 29th, 2019

Just sat down and wrote 3,400 words in three hours. Words flowed freely (mostly).

Unfortunately, I'm at least a thousand more words from end of chapter, so no post tonight. Definitely post tomorrow, though.

Portal is done: next streaming? Next writing? · 6:02pm January 16th

Well, the writing first. Those of you who are on my Patreon know I'm well behind my personal daily writing goal, but I've begun work on the next Changeling Space Program chapter plus work on a contest entry and another project I've hinted at before. All of those will continue, at least until I get around the writer block I have on Haycartes.

Preview #2: Possible CSP Sequel Series · 11:34pm Dec 27th, 2017

I've been kicking this around for the past year in my head, and six weeks ago I began taking notes for it. If I do this I'd do it as a post-per-day challenge and see how long I could keep that up. That, of course, assumes there's interest, and that I can continue CSP and work on this too. Bad show to have a sequel to a never-finished fic, right?

Anyway...

Results- What I'm Working On in January · 12:02am Jan 2nd, 2018

Based on the feedback I received here, the overwhelming desire of FimFiction readers is that I write more Changeling Space Program and go ahead with The Maretian. I'll officially post the first chapter of that in a bit. EDIT FIRST CHAPTER IS LIVE NOW.
