Next chapter coming along… slowly

I’m about 4500 words into the next chapter. I’m hoping to have something ready to go by the weekend, but I wouldn’t say its impossible that I won’t get anything serious done until Labor Day in the US (September 5)

Work has been beyond insane, with several days where I’ve had to work from 4 AM to 7 PM the next day. I won’t get into why, but this has obviously disrupted my sleep schedule, and with other things going on has cut down on my writing time.

I have gotten estimates from several artists on the next phase of artwork and am in the process of determining what to go with based on Patreon feedback. Ideas to that effect are also welcome here.

Progress (or rather lack thereof)

I’ve done about five thousand words on the next chapter without an outline, as the outlines keep not meeting what I need to write with.

Things are going slowly since I’ve got relatives staying with me and work is sort of getting hectic. On the plus side, I have (finally) gotten the research stuff  I need for drell, the engineering guide and maybe another add on to No Single Raindrop.

It is very likely (but not 100%) that something will come out in August, probably at least two STG files (one of them on Tetrimus) and maybe — no promises — another chapter of Lions.

The OSABC rewrites are going very well thanks to the Second Editing Gang. although re-reading it has opened my eyes to just how shit it really was. 🙁

 

 

So…Patreon.

After discussion with the Editing Gang and the poll, I have decided to open up a Patreon to defray costs for artwork, music, and other goals.

The Patreon Page is here : http://patreon.com/LogicalPremise

There are more details listed there, including reward levels and what not. Please keep in mind : You are not required to give anything.

You don’t have to be a Patron to access the forums.

You don’t have to be a Patron to be in the Editing Gang.

This is strictly voluntary. For those of you who would like to donate but don’t have the cash or ability to do so, comments on this post about things you could to do help would be appreciated.

If you know good artists, musicians, animators or the like, references to them would also be helpful.

The Next Chapter is being outlined.

Updates and the lack thereof.

You probably noticed my writing spree this time around for this part of the year has been Naruto focused,  rather than on ME.

I’m having some writer’s block on how exactly to proceed in a meaningful way, but still need to distract myself a bit.

TWCD and the rest of the ME Stuff will continue, do not worry.

Wong Interviews done

Sort of covering old ground, but also tying things together.

Note: There is only so much bullshit I can tolerate from a game. When you have  a bridge over a river blown out from under you causing complete squad wipe, that threshold has been reached.

If X-COM 2 had a CD I would have eaten it by now. 😀

Working on some stuff, since X-COM 2 has even moar bullshiat than the first.

Not ready to start the next Omega piece yet…but between rage-quits after Gold Olympic ADVENT Lancer bullshit teamwipes and “Oh, look, six Heavy MECs and Sectopod flanking me ARE YOU FUCKING SHITTING ME X-COM?!?!” I am working on a couple of pieces.

Two Wong interviews, a new STG Report, and expanding on the Encyclpedia Biotica. I’ll put another post out when they hit FF.net.

X-COM 2 is a very good game but will induce raeg.

Next Chapter up on FF.net

Finally.

I don’t know how much I can write this weekend, depends on nerve and back pain. I am glad it decided to at least hold off messing up too badly during the holidays, so I got to enjoy them….have to see what happens.

If things go well (i.e., back cooperates) I can try to write up the next chapter and have it done by Sunday for the Editing Gang to make fun of. If not, I will try to turn their latest crazy into another chapter of the crackfic.
