Sorry for the day-late update! This one's... Going to be a bit different.
Online Content Released:
- TEQ Appendix C: Protectors of the Realm: A Tribute to a God (Chapter 30)
Behind the Scenes:
This time, I'm just going to roll last both last week's and the upcoming week's behind-the-scenes into one, because they're fairly hard to separate. The short version of the story is that... This week has been HARD. I really try to avoid talking about negative aspects of my life here, because my goal is to bring people joy, not sob stories. But... This week was rough. I haven't been sleeping well in the slightest, and my daughter has been struggling heavily with her health problems. All of it put together has led to a rather unproductive week.
To make a long story short, most of this week, I've just been exhausted. When I sit down to write, I've been so tired that I physically can't put anything together. Editing is useless in such a state, because... If I can't even get a coherent rough draft, I have no business trying to refine anything. My mind is left to wander, exploring all the various possibilities and storylines that I want to bring to the table.
With that said, here's how it ties into next week (and future weeks beyond that). I have a lot of stories that I want to follow. They are, in no particular order:
- The Eternal Quest (continuing the story)
- The Eternal Quest Legacies (title pending. Single-volume blocks that would explore other stories in Calsin's past)
- The Stonewielder reboot
- The Nomad reboot
- Apocolyps Squad (Book 2 is done, but book 3 still needs some work, and I'd be willing to consider future volumes if people are liking it).
So... What does all this mean? If anything, it simply means: I'm sorry. I know I have a number of people who look forward to the weekly update, and I wish I could give you more concrete plans on what I'll be doing. The problem is: I just don't know. More than likely, much of next week (assuming I can actually catch up on sleep) will be spent on TEQ. Maybe I can knock out a few chapters? I guess we'll see!
*I'd also like to apologize for how much I just ramble in this post. I'm kinda struggling to stay awake at the moment, Future Dakota is probably going to be furious at Past Dakota for putting anything like this on the internet. Oh, well. That's Future Dakota's problem.
Until next time!
