I'm doing 2 chapters per week now on Mondays and Thursdays at midnight (my time) in order to be able to rebuild my stockpile while maintaining constant and consistent releases. Sorry for slowing down the pace compared to the first 4 weeks, but that pace was only possible because I was sitting on a large stockpile.
Finally,as promised, the last 3 chapters of Secret Hole are coming out all in one day. Chapter 11 is out. Chapter 12 will be out in 7.5 hours. Chapter 13 will be out in 15.5 hours. Sorry about the length on chapter 11. It was too fun for me to write.
The release of the final 3 chapters of Secret Hole has been scheduled to happen automatically on December 2, with the releases being spaced 8 hours apart. On the same day the first chapter of my next story, Slave To Reality, will be released, with one new chapter being released every week on Thursday, both here and on WebNovel. I have built up a large stockpile of chapters, so releases will be steady this time.
I finally finished my story Secret Hole. I still want to refresh the cover image and then publish the final 3 chapters in 1 day. My next story is going to be Slave To Reality, and I will try to publish it simultaneously both here and on WebNovel (if they let me). My aim is for Slave To Reality chapter 1 to come out right before ending Secret Hole, so both should happen by the end of this month. It's been more than a year's hardship to get here finally.
Turns out that what was stopping me from writing wasn't how busy I was, or how tired I was, but rather it was how stressed I was. I didn't feel free to to take the time to sit down and write. The moment the heavy responsibility i had was over, boom, 635 words in about 1 hour of free time, whereas previously even when I had free time I couldn't think about writing. If feels good. I think chapter 12 is about 50% done. When chapter 13 is done I'll do a mini mass-release to end the story.
I guess I'm officially on Hiatus until August 17. I do try to write (and have written thousands of words since April), but I can't write regularly and consistently. Also, I want to finish Secret Hole and then do a mini mass release for the final chapters rather that release one chapter and then go on hiatus again.
I'm posting my progress on my Ko-Fi page, to give myself some encouragement and record my accomplishments without spamming here. If anybody is actually interested in seeing how much progress I'm making each day, you can view my posts here: https://ko-fi.com/mossplains
I thought it would be difficult to reach the word count goal of 3000 words. Now that I'm back to writing I'm having so much fun that I'v blown way past it. Chapter 11 is already 5000 words and only about 60% of the planned events for the chapter have been written. I'm just enjoying the details of what's happening. I hope it won't end up being tedious for the readers.
After almost 4 months of being unable to write, this week I managed to finally write about 800 words so far, so I'm hopeful of making a comeback. I think I'll do a mass release for the remaining 3 chapters when they are all ready.
For personal reasons I really wasn't in the mood for writing romance this week. I wrote about 30% and I guess I'll publish it when it's ready. I'm tired of making promises that I end up not keeping. I can only hope to have it published by the end of next week.
