I swear I'm gonna write a story based on this

Latest Stories


Six pages into the paper draft and I can already tell chapter 22* is going to be a monster. The first scene’s not even close to over and we still have two more major scenes and at least one minor scene to go and most of those major ones are gonna be like nine pages minimum.

Nine pages is normally half an entire chapter.

Though on the brighter side, this one was in the original outline from day one and is mapped out pretty darn well, save for the bit I'm coming towards right now because writing a certain someone is gonna be a pain in the gums, I'm sure. They're hard to work with in text form no matter what, honestly.

At least writing in notebooks meant that being called to jury duty and then being an actual juror didn't deter me as much as it would have in the final draft process.

Basically this except standing in a courthouse hallway for 90 minutes

If this chapter ends up being as long as the unsplit version of War Room I’m going to eat my own feet. Especially because I can't split this one.

EDIT: This, along with outside work commitments, also means that the update is almost definitely not going to be until April. Probably mid-April

*Right now, "Lifeboat" or something along those lines is in the running for the title. If anyone manages to catch the reference Patch will be impress.

...Actually what the heck is with this running ocean/storm motif I keep doing? I mean, the hurricane and ecosystem metaphors are on purpose but suddenly it's all Horatio Hornblower up in here everything is fishes and mainmasts like wtf
