Monthly Update: June
So this update is a couple days late, but I’m traveling internationally right now, and my internet has been spotty. The traveling has been taking most of my time and energy, however, I think I have made some progress on chapter 2. Unfortunately that progress was coming to the decision, that I just need to rewrite the whole chapter, except the scene I was already planning to move into chapter one. Obviously this is a set back, and means it will take a lot longer to come out with an update, but this chapter has been really hard to get through, and I haven’t really liked anything I’ve written for it. Ultimately, I feel the chapter, and by extension the book as a whole will be better overall for the rewrite. I’m sorry for the delay, but I’d rather give you a better story over a longer period of time then put out something I know in my gut is the wrong fit for my story.
In happier news because June is the month of Father’s day, I was thinking of posting some Father’s Day snippets with the ROs (And possibly include Oren if people are interested). I have a poll here to decide if they should all get the same prompt, or if each should get a different one. Then I’ll post a follow up poll in a few days to decide the prompts themselves.
- Same prompt for all
- Different prompts for each
I’m back from all my travel and will be getting back to working on Guardian of Time, starting with some Father’s Day snippets. I have a poll up on Tumblr for the snippet prompts. The top six will be used.
Monthly Update July:
Look at me posting this on the first like I should. So June got hectic for me real fast, and while I was able to get some progress on the chapter 2 rewrite it wasn’t nearly as much as I wanted. That being said, I did make some progress, and I have a pretty good plan going forward. I am intentionally scheduling very little for July, so I should be able to make good progress this month. Thank you everyone whose sticking with me; you guys help keep me motivated.
Thisss issss awessooomeee! story has juicy details, I like how elaborate it is, not unlike others thats too fast paced for my liking, plus I can’t wait for the ROs to show themselves, althou there are a few misspelled words so far its being compensated by the characters
Thank you so much. I’m glad you liked it.
The first two should appear in the next update, and I’m really excited for people to meet them.
I’ve been trying to fix all the typos in the next update. If you (or really anyone) notices any specific ones it’d be great to have a screen shot, so I can fix them. I am pleased that you like the characters though.
Monthly Update: August 2023
Since I didn’t realize I forgot to do this at the start of the month here is my once again late monthly update.
I actually made a lot of progress on Guardian of Time last month. I finished the first part of chapter two which I consider an accomplishment since I completely restarted the chapter earlier this summer. I think the second part of chapter two will be easier for me to write because I have a clearer vision in mind of how I want it to look, but there is also going to be some new variables introduced and more use of stats than the first half which could slow me down.
I am also about to start classes again which will cut down on my ability to write, but as always I am committed to seeing Guardian of Time through to the end. I hope to still find time to write every day, but I don’t want to promise anything I can’t deliver, or set myself up with unrealistic expectations.
As always, thank you for supporting me. I will keep you guys updated on any news from my end.
Side note: I’m considering adding word counts to these monthly updates so that you guys can see what I’ve added instead of just having to take my word that I’m making “progress” so please let me know if that’s something you’d be interested in
Monthly Update: September 2023
Hey everyone. I am one again a couple days late with the update. The last two weeks have been a struggle, but we made it. I did not get as much writing done as I wanted. Even though I tried to account for classes cutting into writing time, I underestimated how busy the first couple weeks would be. I’ll be trying a few things with my schedule this month to try and find a new writing routine. As always feel free to reach out with any questions.
Please don’t overwork yourself and don’t run yourself dry. Take your time, we’ll wait
