Wherein I admit I'm Terrible at Blogging Regularly · 8:13pm Apr 19th, 2018

I'm terrible at blogging regularly.

Really, I am. I know this, and every time I break silence to say "this time will be different," a small part of me knows I can't keep that up. And on top of that I know that back in October I promised y'all Chapter 17 would be out in November. Clearly, that never happened. So let me clear the air on one thing, absolutely and definitively:

Yes, I absolutely promise that WEcon will be finished.

Blogpost 6/26/2017 - Where the heck is Chapter 16? · 2:08pm Jun 26th, 2017

A perfectly justified question and a complicated answer. As a short answer, Chapter 16 has been delayed by a huge project that Pipistrelle had to take on for work. I've actually seen how much of her time it's been demanding of her, and seen her work through most weekends for the past several months. Perhaps I could have tried to release Chapter 16 in a state without her going through the second pass, but honestly I put a great deal of stock on what PromptAnon and Pipistrelle both do to

Blogpost 4/10/17 - Breaking the Silence · 4:05pm Apr 10th, 2017

Alright, remember when I said that I have a bad habit of keeping quiet if I have nothing to report? Yeah, that kinda happened for a bit there. I got crazy busy IRL (and also maybe a bit too absorbed into NieR Automata), but I return with good news! Chapter 16's draft is complete, and editing has begun!

Blogpost 2/13/17 - 3 Years of WEcon · 3:52pm Feb 13th, 2017

Holy shit, 3 years already. It's kind of amazing to me that I've managed to stick with this for as long as I have, and I have y'all to thank for it. Writing this story and seeing people actually enjoy it enough to talk about it in my comments section has been such an emotional rollercoaster, and I know it sounds cliche, but I really, truly cannot thank you guys enough for the joy you've given me over the last three years.

Blogpost 1/24/17 - That Sweet Science · 5:11pm Jan 24th, 2017

So as I said in the author's notes of Chapter 15, it turned out I had to wait significantly less time than I'd thought to get that one online. As I was typing up the blogpost, Pip was editing! So far it seems like my usual bouts of nervousness have gone unfounded. I swear, each chapter has something that a little voice in my head says everyone will complain about. Some chapters, its easier to shout down than others, and luckily this wasn't a terribly bad one.

Blogpost 1/17-18/17 - New Jobs are Bad for Editing · 4:55pm Jan 18th, 2017

I promised weekly updates dammit. As far as Chapter 15 news goes, Pip's gotten thrown into the deep end at her job, and has been told to compose a white paper on a topic she is only half familiar with herself. She's worked herself to the bone over the past week to get it done, including losing her weekend, so editing has been out of the question. I don't know precisely when her deadline is, but I know it's soonish.

Blogpost 1/10/17 - Yeah, but where's Chapter 15?! · 2:36pm Jan 10th, 2017

Alright, alright, two blogposts in a row of reported delays is a kinda shitty way to start off the new year, but dammit I promised myself I'm going to give y'all weekly updates.

Blogpost 1/3/17 - Last-Minute Delays · 10:57pm Jan 3rd, 2017

Well, I know I promised y'all a chapter today, but I'm giving you a heads up now that due to some delays in the editing, that likely won't happen. I also promised weekly updates, so I'm making sure to fulfill that obligation now. I have one more scene to rewrite, and then we can start the round 2 edits. Because Pipistrelle starts her new job tomorrow, I'm pumping away at this as fast as I can to make sure this goes up ASAP.

What a year, what a year. Honestly and truly I want to apologize once more to everyone for the fact that I've only put out... god, only two chapters all year. I'll be honest, if I stop to think about it, that paralyzing lethargy starts to hit me again, but I'm not gonna let that hold me back anymore. I aim to complete Chapter 15 over the long weekend and upload it January 2nd, so look out for that. We'll hit the ground running, and I will do my best to make up for lost time.

Holy Cow, Ham Lives? · 3:39pm Dec 19th, 2016

Yes, yes I am alive. I do apologize for the extended silence. I have several bits of good news and at least one bit of bad news.

First, the bad news: Chapter 15 of Wasteland Economics is not yet complete.
