I hate summertime colds... · 3:10pm Monday

I fell ill this past Friday night, which doubly sucks because it happened on a weekend and I couldn’t use it as an excuse to take a sick day from work. Seems like a standard cold so far, as the initial fever was brief and I’ve entered the hacking phase of it this morning. But having medicated myself, hopefully my coughing won’t be too annoying to my coworkers today. But since you’re not here to listen to me grouse, here’s a writing update:

Midnight Rising continues into Lemon Zested, Part 2 - teaser below · 5:54pm July 9th

I have momentum and 9000 words already written for it, so it will continue with the objective of it being launched in two weeks. Since Part 1 was showing what Lemon Zest did to Sci-Twi, Part 2 will be her long-awaited punishment by Midnight, along with a side of what happened to Sunset when she ends up spending nearly an entire weekend in Equestria. The latter will include a rather nerve-wracking reunion with Princess Celestia, as the below teaser will show.

Midnight Rising Chapter 21 in prereads · 9:25pm July 1st

Lemon Zested, Part 1 will launch likely late this week or coming weekend, depending on how quickly prereads come in and if there’s any issues they find with it. Consider it another form of fireworks for the US Fourth of July celebration. The next chapter of Feathered Hearts: Continuation and Chronicles will follow sometime after, but I’m going to mostly work on Midnight Rising for now since I seem to have some momentum. C&C will still receive some attention, though, as will

It appears that the next completed chapter will belong to Midnight Rising... brief teaser included · 9:12pm June 27th

I’ve made good progress on the Lemon Zest chapters this week thanks to a quiet spell at work, which is especially welcome after vacation. In fact, part one is only a day or two away from draft completion, at which point it will be off to prereaders.

Back from holiday... here's my upcoming writing schedule · 3:33pm June 24th

Took the past two weeks off and spent one of them in Vegas. Unlike last year, I didn’t win at the poker tables—in fact, my luck was uncannily bad at times—but I also didn’t play that much for that very reason, sensing luck was not with me and to play then was to invite larger losses. Over the years, I’ve learned to follow the advice of Kenny Rogers when it comes to cards:

Feathered Hearts C&C chapter 40 will launch tonight · 3:26pm June 10th

I apologize for the long delay. The chapter draft was submitted to prereaders a month ago and well-received, but the graphics have taken me a while and several false starts. The main reason is I tried multiple methods to include unit icons in the maps of Aresia, but the end result always seems more cluttered than anything else. Here's an example:

Without unit icons:

New Midnight Rising chapter off to prereaders... · 6:10pm May 28th

At long last. This is the redo of the chapter I was forced to scrap in April and then about 80% rewrite. I saved a few select bits and pieces from the original version, but the rest went by the wayside.

Still pecking away on Midnight Rising and Feathered Hearts... · 9:09pm May 24th

The two Lemon Zest chapters of Midnight Rising have now reached 26,600 words and they’re still nowhere near done, with probably another 5-6k words to go. Gotta treat the girl right, after all, and also make sure there’s plenty of sexy side dishes around her. And as for Feathered Hearts?

Still working on Midnight Rising... · 7:47pm May 17th

At the rate of about 800-1000 words a day. That’s my key to getting stuff done that’s causing you issues; just be sure you put at least a little time in on it this day to have some forward momentum. The two chapters are now up to 24,100 words. I’ll work on it more this weekend, at least around continuing work around the maps and battle graphics I’m making for Feathered Hearts.

Did two things this past weekend... · 3:58pm May 13th

First, I ran 10k for the first time in two months after laying off that long to let my ankle bursitis subside, trying to allow the area to generally heal up. It appears that it worked. To my delight, there was no ankle pain after and I hadn’t even lost much stamina thanks to hitting an elliptical machine twice a week for an hour instead of jogging. My upper legs are another matter, though. They’re sore as hell. But I’ll take it.
