Hey folks, as I mentioned in my last post, there aren't going to be any chapters this week. I've like...been working almost exclusively on my compiler this week and haven't had any free time to do it. But, its due date (the 9th) marks the "real" end of school for me, so given a couple weeks to catch my breath, at the start of the new year I'm looking to return to the six scheduled chapters a month thing I was doing earlier this year, since I won't have school to deal with anymore
Hey guys, there won't be a chapter next week, I'm going to be out of town for Thanksgiving and won't have time to write. There's a decent chance there won't be one the week after, either, since I'm cramming to finish my compiler, but we'll see how it's look then. I just wanted to let everyone know in advance!
I know this is like...two weeks in a quick succession, but I'm not going to be able to get this week's chapter of TNC out. I got sick in the latter half of this week, and my head is too fuzzy to write. I have 5 (admittedly not the best quality) chapters of SS that are coming out once I feel better, and then the release of those will probably slow from the pace they've been at. This sort of marks the end of an "important" part, so it won't be quite as easy to write for a little bit.
Hey folks, I got hit over the head with midterms and a lot of projects, so no chapter of The Outlands this week. I do have a couple of SS chapters from before that happened, they'll be posted...some time in the next week when I'm not feeling so dead inside.
No Outlands this week, unfortunately. I basically spent three days straight doing nothing but working on AI, so...I just didn't have time.
I'm going to be thinking about bringing my schedule down to one chapter a week this semester depending on how things go this week (I have parsing for my compiler due), more on that if it happens, we'll know by Friday.
Hey folks, I have some bad news. Basically, I got laid flat by a sickness this past week (not Covid, I got tested twice, since my brother tested positive a while before), and have not been able to do any writing. That effort went into Lexical Analysis, since, unfortunately, school comes first. I'm still a bit behind for school, but hopefully this shouldn't impact next week too much.
(New Swarm chapter was finished before being sick and not posted due to said sickness)
So, I wanted to make this post as a sort of preemptive check-in before school starts. It's my last semester of college, and unfortunately I had to take the two hardest classes in my degree at the same time or do another semester.
I'm anticipating that there are going to be weeks where I simply cannot get chapters done due to the workload those classes are going to put on me. I just wanted to let everyone know this in advance so it's not too much of a surprise. Thanks for your understanding!
Hey everyone, between catching my brother's cold and moving out next week, I've decided to skip this week's chapter. I was probably going to end up skipping next week, but that will not happen now and this week's chapter will come next week. Sorry for the delay!
So...awkward story, I got sick like...right after I got back from my trip, and I was only able to finish The Outlands this week. Sorry, I know that's disappointing, but I really wasn't able to write for like...a few days and I kind of needed that time. SS did get a new chapter as well, but that was like 95% done already so I just finished it off now that I'm feeling a little better.
As I had feared, I'm definitely going to have to take a break next week. I'm just really not confident I can get anything quality done in the time I have before my family's heading out, so...yeah. After that we shouldn't see any breaks for a bit. Depending on what's being released that week, I might need another in mid to late august, as I'm moving, but we'll see when we get there. We might still see a single chapter of Swarming Sovereignty this next week, but...don't count on it.
So, I have a fairly important announcement regarding the release schedule of my main two series, and it's kinda long, so I have a pastebin here: https://pastebin.com/fGiQah7Y
TL;DR I'm taking a break this week and chapters will be moving down to two chapters every three weeks instead of once a week (basically, 3 chapters a month vs 4). I really wanted to avoid doing this if possible, but the current pace is just not good for my mental health.
Hey everyone, after some talking with my discord I decided to post my series to RoyalRoad as well. I'm doing them a bit differently there (mostly with no author's notes), but if you prefer to read there, then it's an option now. Here are the links if you want them:
