Oh, hey! With this chapter of ADBTW, I broke 200k words on SH! Yay, me!

avaseofpeonies · Author · Dec 31, 2022

Happy New Year, everyone! I've had a nice rest, knitting while catching up on a bunch of dramas, but I'll get back to writing soon. My resolution is to get both of these stories finished before my birthday in June. They are both nearing their finales, so I think it's do-able. Best of luck to you all with whatever you dream for yourself in 2023! ✨🎆🎇🧨🎊✨

Thatsnoreason · Dec 31, 2022

Yeay!

RavenRunes · Jan 1, 2023

Happy NY! I'm knitting socks. I lack the tenacity for anything bigger. So yeah...socks.clear.png Any ideas what you write once these two are done?

I see you like C-Dramas, yay! I'm currently on Sword Snow Stride, The Blood of Youth, and Heroes. OMG, I LOVE Heroes.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Jan 1, 2023

My knitting tenacity is from my need to fidget while watching tv 😅

I've had an urban fantasy in mind for a long time, but it will be a huge long term project, so maybe that one, maybe not.

SSS is on my list! I'm on Luoyang now and loving it. It is  quite the quality production.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Dec 19, 2022

I've been taking an accidental break, but I should make it official. Weather and holidays just have me too muddled. Chapters are percolating in my head, I just can't get focused to write them out right now. I'll get back to it and resume updates after New Year's. I hope the remainder of 2022 finds you all happy and healthy and in good company!

RavenRunes · Dec 22, 2022

clear.png me too. Fresh brains January! 

avaseofpeonies · Author · Dec 31, 2022

I hope so. I miss your stories! 💕

New pics in the ADBTW glossary for Yanek, Thelan, and Nal. I have realized that none of them really got a good physical description in-story, and I'll have to fix that in revision. These are about how I see them, though.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Nov 21, 2022

New portraits in the Salvage glossary for Amelys, Brandra, Yilina, and Gorvan.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Nov 14, 2022

I've just done a bunch of housekeeping for Salvage. First, character portraits for Kazia, Kel, Tam, and Zhen. They are in the glossary and in the intro chapter. I've also overhauled the synopsis on the series page, and revised the intro chapter and moved the map there. Would anyone be willing to check those out and let me know what you think?

RavenRunes · Nov 14, 2022

Looks good, although I'd like to see something of the stakes in the synopsis, like x (bad) will happen if y doesn't? More personal to Kazia I mean. Yilina being a major X  for a start....

avaseofpeonies · Author · Nov 14, 2022

Thanks! I'll have to try to think of how to word something like that without getting too spoilery. Ugh, why is this so hard?! clear.png

avaseofpeonies · Author · Nov 13, 2022

And Meira has joined the cast portraits in the glossary for ADBTW.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Nov 7, 2022

There is now a Kyrzhan pic in the ADBTW glossary if you'd like to take a look. Artbreeder will only let me make him look younger than he should, but I figure 1) he does wear makeup and 2) he has a lot of money, so he can afford the good skincare.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Oct 31, 2022

Treats for ADBTW readers! I made some some character portraits in Artbreeder. They're in the glossary now, and in Chapter 0 with the map. I'm so sorry it's not an update, but I'm actively working on one and it should be here soon. I'm doing portraits for Salvage, too, but Tamyn is being a problem child, and I really want him to look right.

Happy Halloween! Have fun, stay safe, and oh hey! Today would be a good day to go read my vampire story, Birthrite! 🧛‍♀️🎃

Hahaha, no it really doesn't! And as for full body portrait, no chance of me figuring it out! But it's a fun tool to procrastinate with....First time I tried Arianlach in it, I got 'chubby Cameron Diaz' so...clear.png

Nice. Is artbreeder a free app? Also, what did you use to make the map?? :)

avaseofpeonies · Author · Nov 3, 2022

The beta version is free, and there's a paid version too. I did the map in Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator, which is also free. It also has quite a learning curve, but was pretty cool once I figured it out some. I still had to put in the mountains and hand draw the river where I wanted it (I use Paint.net for editing.)

avaseofpeonies · Author · Oct 29, 2022

New update for Salvage. This one was a job of work, and is why everything has been held up, including ADBTW. You know, writing smut would probably be easier if I didn't put all this philosophizing in. Probably more popular, too. But no, I've got to have folks contemplating life, the universe, and everything while they're doin' it. Well, you can pry my artistic integrity from my cold, dead... wait, how popular are we talking?

avaseofpeonies · Author · Aug 31, 2022

I recently discovered Azgaar's Fantasy Map Generator, and two solid days of obsessive hyperfocus later, there is now a map of my little world of lovelorn alchemists. It's in the glossaries of Salvage and ADBTW if you'd like to see. Open in a new tab to embiggen.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Aug 31, 2022

And, yeah, it's basically all of Eurasia squished into about the size of the U.S. The cheekily-labeled areas may get filled out if I write more stories set in this world, which I just may do.

RavenRunes · Aug 31, 2022

Ooh, a map! I love maps. Thanks! 

avaseofpeonies · Author · Aug 31, 2022

💖 Hey! It's good to hear from you. I hope you're doing well!

avaseofpeonies · Author · Jun 24, 2022

Today is my birthday, and it's one of those painful ones (although I'm still on the right side of the ground, so it's a good day), and I've stayed up all night to kick off my personal new year by getting some writing done, hopefully presaging continued motivation for the rest of my year.

Thanks to those reading Salvage. I've been trying to write it all my life, and I'm honestly proud of myself for finally doing it. Thanks for coming along on the journey. ❤

RavenRunes · Jun 24, 2022

Many Happy Returns! Hope you have an awesome day :)

avaseofpeonies · Author · Jun 24, 2022

Thank you!

TL_Nonoke · Jun 24, 2022

Happy Birthday!!

avaseofpeonies · Author · Jun 24, 2022

Thanks!

avaseofpeonies · Author · Jun 17, 2022

With this post of Salvage, we now head into the final arc of the story. It won't be finished terribly soon, but I can see land on the distant horizon. Thank you so much for coming along this far with me. You are all so appreciated! ❤

avaseofpeonies · Author · May 22, 2022

I'm renumbering each post of Salvage to make it easier for myself to keep track of things. Readers may safely ignore this. Nothing is changing in the content.

avaseofpeonies · Author · Apr 7, 2022

If you're reading Salvage - I know I said you don't have to read ADBTW, and you don't, but I need to tell you that I just wrote some stuff in this latest chapter that might give you a good laugh if you are reading Salvage. I can't stop laughing about it myself - this guy really does not like Alchemists.

Maybe it's a bit gauche to sit here laughing at my own jokes, but hey - in these pandemic times being a fully independently self-entertaining unit is the best way to live, right? Right.
