Remastering Of Sheep and Battle Chicken

I’ve hit a bit of writers block in several areas, and I need to rework some outlines. Progman is also very busy, as is Michael110.

Thus, for at least a little while, I’m going to be reworking and fixing up OSABC, clearing up the typos, redoing fuckups in tense selection, and especially augmenting earlier chapters where things don’t line up with later ones in terms of how the story evolved.

I’ve redone the first chapter already, to make it less suck and more interesting.  If you have recommendations of things to fix, let me know!

Kickass Art from theLivingShadow

Finally got more art moving through the pipeline.

The first set is from TheLivingShadow, who will be doing a series of panels covering Systems Alliance uniforms and armor. Leading off with the SA’s enlisted / junior / senior uniform distribution.

From left to right, that’s a corporal, a Lieutenant, and an Admiral of the Red.

Again, if you plan on ever comissioning any kind of artwork, check him (and Nikita and Erin) out.

New Content to Older Works

I’ll be doing the following:

  • Slowly re-writing several chapters to provide more details in OSABC including “Wrex”, “Liara”, and “Cole”.
  • A series of interviews and short stories in the Biotic Encyclopedia with various biotics from various races
  • Cleaning up “The Best Father” a bit, to make it easier to read.
  • Going over some unclear things in the Cerberus Files: Aliens in regards to asari.

This won’t all get done at once or even quickly, but it will be happening as I find the time and energy to do it.

Working on next chapters

I’m busy working on both a new chapter for Of Sheep and Battle Chicken as well as the first chapter of the Turian Hierarchy for a Season of Sorrows Unending.

I’ve also finally completed outlining of Lions in Blue and Silver, although I don’t have a date for that to actually begin work yet.  LiBaS is a story idea given to me by Progman, to go into the background of the Legacy Team. It will go over some parts of the First Conflict War that are very ugly, and probably run to about ten or eleven chapters. It will also give a lot of insight into why Rachel Florez joined Cerberus.

I haven’t gotten much done on the Human Version of the Cerberus Files, and sadly nothing done on Naruto stories either.

Not dead, just recovering

End of year for the insurance industry was beyond fucked up this time around, due to both Obamacare’s changes to regulations and the fact that both people and businesses waited until the last minute to do things.

Normally end of year crap wraps up in the first week, but it’s January 18th and I’m still pulling 11 to 14 hour work days. Obviously I haven’t had much time to write and get my head together.

This is not a hiatus, just a slow down due to work. The notes for the next chapter are pretty much complete, I just have to sit down and write it.  I’m afraid I don’t have a good ETA on when the next chapter will come out at this time, but I’m HOPING to get something done this weekend. We’ll see.

Erin is working on a second painting, and the third will be along shortly after that.
