@Taylor_Enean - I really like that Very clever, lol!
@thatdodgymoggie- Yeah, @Umbreonpanda is right. I pronounce it Cha-na (with the ‘a’ sounding like the ‘a’ in ‘banana’- I have no idea if that makes sense, lol!).
@idonotlikeusernames - Still no kisses in Book One, lol. And you’re in for the long haul if you choose Adam/Ava!
In reference to the supernaturals- yes, there will be supernaturals from non-western sources, which I’m looking forward to. It’s amazing the wealth of information out there! Though some races won’t be exactly like the original tales, and will have their own Wayhaven spin on them- western or otherwise
So as some of you may have seen from my (rather excited) Tumblr post earlier in the week, I finished the base writing for Book One of The Wayhaven Chronicles!
I’m still pretty hyped about it
I played through it all as a full thing for the first time yesterday, which was exciting!
The final word count before edits and tests is:
Total word count: 431,851.
Average playthrough: Just over 70,000.
Nice to reach novel length even just on one playthrough!
There’s still some stuff to fiddle around with and obviously still LOTS of editing and then testing to go.
But I feel kind of optimistic that I might be able to put into the Hosted Game queue before Christmas, which would be a major accomplishment for this year for me!
But I don’t want to rush it. I’d rather give it the time it needs to be the best it can be, so I can’t make any promises. Still might not be until early next year, just to make sure it gets the time it needs on the polishes and edits
So yeah, yay!
I will be handing it over to my testers to playthrough whilst I do my own edits on it for the next week, then the next step will be beta testers.
Thank you so much for sticking with me through this guys, and for showing such incredible and amazing support!
Hope you all have an absolutely brilliant weekend and I’ll talk to you on Monday!
