A Peek Behind the Curtain (AKA Making Cover Art) · 5:42am Feb 5th, 2019

Small Status Update: Departures is sitting at 4 written chapters, all of which are in various stages of editing. That said, I'm going to wait until I have a nice backlog of chapters until I begin posting. I have some big life changes coming up soon so having a good backlog of chapters will help keep updates regular and stress low. I streamlined the entire narrative so there's been some trimming done here and there, but it's still more or less the same narrative that I've been working on for a

The Carousel of Projects · 7:10am Jan 24th, 2019

Well shrugging off all adult responsibilities for two weeks sure was fun, but alas all good things must come to an end. So without further delay, let's get right down to business.

Pandemic: Dreamers
I've got another chapter or two including a conclusion that leads directly into...

Pandemic: Departures (Tentative Title)

The ever changing nature of direction · 12:15am Jan 22nd, 2019

I’m not exactly new to writing... I just haven’t done it in a particularly long time. To say my skills were a little rusty when I wrote the first chapter for “Pandemic: Dreamers”, would be a huge understatement. That was more than a month ago at this point, and when writing it I didn’t exactly have the main direction for the story all figured out. I had little pieces here and there, but they weren’t planned to really take off until later on in the narrative. I’ve been writing the continuation

The never ending cycle of Progress · 4:23am Jan 18th, 2019

The more that I write the more I feel like I get a better sense for the characters and their motivations along with what works and what doesn’t. Something that I realized and needed to rectify early on was writing solo chapters with a single perspective and nothing else. The writing in Silver Eclipse’s introductory chapter is especially annoying to re read because it just comes off as big blocks of expository text with no real space for character development. Here’s a little preview of one of

Illumination · 3:18am Jan 14th, 2019

It’s kind of ironic, I went on vacation to get away from my day to day life for a couple weeks. Relax, take some time off from work, take a break from writing... yet I sit here having written or outlined something every night since I’ve gotten here. Vacation it seems, has actually given me more inspiration than I could have even imagined. All of that said though, I doubt I’ll publish anything before the 24th at the earliest, but we’ll see...

A short hiatus · 6:52am Jan 6th, 2019

I had planned to save Chapter 3 until I got back from my vacation, however I'm almost done with it and I still have a few days before I leave, so on that note: I'll probably publish Chapter 3 on Tuesday or Wednesday and then mark the story as "On Hiatus" until I get back. Ultimately I plan on having at least 6 chapters in this story counting the three that I've already written, with either an epilogue, or a final chapter that sets up the next story. As with anything this might change over time

Making Progress! · 5:15am Dec 31st, 2018

I've had a story in mind for nearly 6 months now and I'm finally in the final stages of editing it's first chapter. It's been a very long process and the story, it's characters, and it's setting have gone through a few dozen changes and revisions over the course of the last few months, and it's finally at a state that I'm genuinely happy with. I have a few ideas for how the concept could be expanded upon in a sequel however that's a long time away, possibly even longer than the development

Well, I'm back · 8:15am Dec 16th, 2018

I feel real good about myself, you know what I mean? So without any further delay:

I haven't been active since 2015 and I've thought up some neat ideas, so we'll see what happens.
