So, I just wanted to let you all know how things currently stand.
I’m about 50% through the next chapter, “The Empty Dragon – Act 2” (of 3), but it’s turning out to be one of the most difficult to write to my satisfaction, as it deals with some seriously dark subject matter (take a look at act 1 to see just a few hints of it), which is why I haven’t finished it just yet.
I’ve also done about 20% of the work on the following chapter “Bad People”. That one… won’t be a big problem to finish, once I get to it. About a third of it is mostly just the Dark fighting the Gefährten.
Outlines for “Good People” and “The Man Who Knocked Out Lady Light” are complete, and the latter already has several scenes done in very rough first drafts.
Hopefully, Act 2 will be finished this weekend.
I’m currently working on a new Dreaming chapter – or at least, I should’ve been. Unfortunately, Halloween got in the way, and I’m not finished yet, so there won’t be a new chapter today.
However, I am not skipping it – this just means there’ll be a late October chapter first, within the next few days, before I start on the November chapters.
I’m sorry I’m keeping you waiting.
As some of you have noticed, there are a few missing chapters. Two, in fact. Apparently, this is due to some server issue on wordpress’ side, and mine is not the only blog that has lost something.
The missing chapters are B12.10 Born At Sleep and B13.2 Call of the Sleeper.
Unfortunately, those are both chapters I wrote on my ipad, while on the move (mostly on the train), and I’m afraid I’ve failed to keep backups of them – just a few half-finished drafts. I can rewrite them, of course, but I thought I’d ask if anyone here may have a copy they can mail to me at “firstname.lastname@example.org”, to speed things along.
Now back to writing the new chapter.
I’m sorry about it, but I have to delay the chapter until Tuesday. Had some surprise family visits today, and they ate more of my writing time than they should have.
Why Tuesday and not Monday? Well, that’s because Monday is Workday, and I doubt I’ll manage to finish it then. So Tuesday it is, for now.
PS: I’ll still try to finish today, but it doesn’t look good.
The chapter might be a little late, but it’s coming soon! And by soon I mean an hour, at most two (if something happens to completely distract me).
I’m writing right now, and I won’t go to sleep until I’m done with this chapter!
There’s going to be a Brennus chapter on Sunday, probably in the late evening, and then either a Brennus or Dreaming chapter, or else a Brennus File, either on Monday or Wednesday.
