All my Christmas shopping is done!!!
*This would not be the first time I've forgotten someone, so... Hopefully that's not the case!*
A look at what I've gotten done and what I plan to do!
Last two weeks:
- TEQ Volume 4: Citizens of Ash: Return (Chapter 57)
Behind the Scenes:
- Oh, where to start. First off, I'm sorry for the late upload and lack of an update last week. Black Friday and the following weekend wound up being SIGNIFICANTLY crazier than I had been expecting, and I just didn't have the time to actually sit down and type anything out. With that said...
I've actually got a LOT done.
As stated in the last update, my plan was to finish working on Age of Saints for the time being and then switch gears into other projects. And... That happened! Sitting at around 50k at the moment, I have officially placed Age of Saints to the side while my thoughts on it sit and brew. In the meantime... I'm now officially working on Apocolyps Squad III!
At the moment, I am 31,811 words into the third and final installment of the series. And I have to say, it's coming along nicely. I'm absolutely loving bringing all the threads together, I think it's going to truly be a ride of epic proportions. Zombies, vampires, mummies, shapeshifters... Oh, I guess I shouldn't spoil too much! But yeah, it's pretty awesome.
- TEQ Volume 4: Citizens of Ash: The Ruins of Elsinor (Chapter 58)
Behind the Scenes:
- At present, my plan is to plow through Apocolyps Squad III, full steam ahead. I'm going to set a goal of reaching at least 60k by this time next week. Achievable? We'll see!
And... Yeah, that's really my only plan for this next week. With that said, let me provide a quick overview of what my plan for the extended future happens to be.
As of right now, I have TEQ written through the end of January. If I have it calculated right, the last chapter will go online on January 24. Which means that I have until January 31 to get more chapters together. This is the tightest I've run the series thus far, and... It's going to be interesting. Not impossible, but interesting. At the moment, my plan is to try and finish the rough draft of Apocolyps Squad III by January 1st. It's not much time, but I think it can be done (if I can do 30k per week, that puts me at 90k by January 20 and 120k by January 27. And I really don't think it's going to turn out that long). Then, as soon as that's done, I'll switch gears back into The Eternal Quest and start writing Volume 5 JUST in the nick of time! After that, I'll probably turn back to finishing up Age of Saints. But that's also all the way in February, and if you've been following my progress for any great length of time, you'll know that my plans rarely stay intact that far out into the future.
Until next time!
