Black Feather Project Update · 9:12am Dec 21st, 2023

The last month has been pretty crazy. My dog got a massive bladder infection and I had to spend $2000 on vet bills to get an ultrasound and all the nonsense that goes with that, all to get a prescription for $30 worth of medicine to fix the situation. Been kinda busy with that as well as upcoming holiday planning, etc.

One more rewritten chapter · 8:34am Nov 30th, 2023

Hey everyone.

Well, that last chapter took 3 weeks of hard work, mostly design, but nobody has commented on it so I can't tell how anyone feels about the story so far. I'm hoping people can share their thoughts because it helps me to know how the story is being received.

More new characters · 2:09am Oct 29th, 2023

I've recently finished a scene where Dinky gets to know one of the platoon members. I find Dinky's POV to be fascinating to write, though all the Dinky POV scenes will be brand new content (for you old fans out there) because Dinky wasn't previously written into this part of the story. She's a fun character to see the world through. Innocent and naïve, happily venturing into things that are over her head.

Alright, it's time for a shift of tone.

I had a pretty long chat with Duvet yesterday, and we decided that chapter eleven really does need a thorough rework from the 2018 version. This is the last of what I'd call my "weak writing". Chapters 12-21 are pretty much perfect, so if I can fix 11, this is going to mean great things for the story.

Project update (more Dinky) · 9:22am Oct 3rd, 2023

This week, my free time for actually writing has been assassinated due to a number of coinciding circumstances, but I'm taking advantage of the sporadic free moments (and discussions with Duvet) to further plan out what's happening with Dinky.

Yeah, Dinky is a real boat-rocker because of her extremely gifted teleportation skills. That doesn't make her a bad character, it just makes her a bit challenging to work into a pre-existing story.

Progress with Dinky's Chapter 10 scene · 6:31am Sep 28th, 2023

I spent all day Monday working on this brand new scene for Dinky, since it was a public holiday and I had extra time. Though it was quite a lot of work and I was exhausted afterward.

ChatGPT weighs in on Chapter 8 · 1:42am Sep 24th, 2023

I thought I'd take a bit of a different approach to today's blog entry by asking ChatGPT what it thought of various sections of Chapter 8 - The Moon Princess. The AI was surprisingly capable of interpreting the subtext and implications the chapter provides. I was quite impressed. Here are some excerpts for you to enjoy.

Regarding the passage about the tragedy at Luna's school, I asked:

Developing Dinky · 12:11pm Sep 19th, 2023

Hey everybody. First, I'd like to give a bit of an update on story progress. I've finished chapter 9 finally, and I think it's fantastic! Couldn't be happier. It's such a relief to have replaced a significant chunk of the 2018 version with an entirely rewritten chapter, including a fair bit of new and terrifying content that should get people's hearts racing! This will be your second glimpse into what Razor is up to as well as introduce the main problem that Nyx spends most of the story trying
