No idea when it will hit, but should be either tonight or tomorrow, unless they tell me it is crap drafted by a kindergardener high on acid.
EDIT: They said it was crap drafted by kindergardener high on acid but I published it anyway.
Also, messed up all the ellipses.
Maybe this one won’t take three months to get out the door.
I’ve made the last few tweaks to the outlines for the coming chapters.
It’s going to be bad, gentle readers. The working titles I have for the crescendo chapters are “Angstrofest of Blood” and “Vengeful Iron Sunset”.
A few more improvements and it will go out tomorrow morning — if you haven’t made edits or suggestions now would be the time to do so.
I still am not 100% comfortable with it, but I’m sure the gang will make it fantastic. It’s a talky non action chapter.
Scrapped sixty thousand words so far. But I will get it down….maybe.
I also had an epiphany about something I plan to do down the line. Orz is Orz.
I’ve suspended user registrations temporarily, as I’ve had 48 new signups with .ru and .tu domains in the past day and all of them are spamlinks.
If you wish to sign up just shoot me an email at email@example.com and I’ll hook you up.
I’ve made a bit of progress on the next chapter of TWCD, although not a ton of it. No good release dates so far, as my back is intermittent and I’ve been distracted by work and personal bullshit no one cares about.
I’d like to get my shit together to at least try for a chapter this month.
Not sure when I will be back into writing, still working with chiropractor.
If you are looking for something to read, Aberron updated his Illusive Man story not too long ago.
If you’ve put a watch on my stories you know I’ve been updating the Naruto stuff instead of the Mass Effect stuff.
Two reasons for that. I’m still in the process of doing the research on the Drell, and a book I ordered is held up due to utter fucking bullshit so I’m forced to wait.
The other reason is that the next chapter of TWCD is important, and I’m not willing to put together a bunch of filler scenes and wonky dialogue when I’m not sure how I want it to feel. I want to get it right, and until I can I’m not just happy with a token effort to advance the story. I’ve done that a couple of places in both OSABC and ATTWN and while it got the job done it weakened the overall result.
I’m aware many of you aren’t fans of Naruto, and even if you were most people gave up when the series creator fucked it up waaaay worse than the ending of ME3. So don’t think you have to read or review my stuff if it isn’t your cup of tea.
That being said, all interest in the work is appreciated. The DLP Gang have a particularly dim view of most Naruto fics and I am going to get a positive reaction out of them to show them the fandom isn’t dead yet as long as people with a brain write it instead of yaoi-obsessed idiots with a fixation on mPreg and foxy accessories.
In other news, my back is doing better, my mom’s hair is finally coming back in, work is still crazy but is doing better and nothing horrible has happened to me (yet) (knock on wood). It’s a very crappy time of the year for me, but I’ll be okay.
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.
