Another Update, Kind Of

I am doing a terrible job of updating this blog.

Oh well.

Anyways, I started writing (another) book, but I don’t care as much about this one. So, I’m going to be posting the chapters as I write them. They are going to be rough draft chapters, so there will be mistakes and continuity errors because I am human and am not perfect. Feel free to comment on the chapters! Click here to start reading!

As for my other projects, I did a long thread on Twitter recently updating my progress on #tIRS. In summary: I have over 110k words written so far. I’m getting close to reaching the third plot point. I’m hoping to be finished with the rough draft by the end of the summer.

I’ve been doing a lot of reading as well. I’m currently sitting at twenty-two books read this year. That’s already two more than last year. My favorite has definitely been The Name of the Wind by Patrick Rothfuss. That book is one of my favorites of all time. Other notable reads have been the Murderbot Diaries and the A Song of Ice and Fire series. The Witcher series has also been an amazing continuous read.

My other projects are going slow. Best way to summarize those is that I’m pretty much at the same spot I was last time.

The Long Expected Update


It’s been quite a while since I updated this blog.

In short: I’ve been busy.

At the beginning of December, I kept telling myself I was going to post one long wrap-up for the year. I outlined it and everything, but then I ended up working full-time (not by choice) and having to do a lot of makeup work for classes.

To be honest, it’s just been a rough few months. I haven’t had the mental energy to put effort into working on this blog like I want to.

But, while I haven’t been working on the blog as much, I’ve been spending more and more time in Enaxelet (the world that book one of #tIRS takes place in). The progress has been rather slow some weeks, others I accomplish a lot. Yesterday, I finally crossed the 70k word mark, and, as soon as I finish the current chapter, Part One of the book will officially be done, and I’ll be over halfway through it. My goal is still to finish the rough draft by the end of May, but school is still a priority for me, and I really need a summer after this last year.

I’ve also been reading a lot more. My goal for 2021 is to read 75 books. I know. Ambitious. But I’ve already finished seven. It’s not nearly as many as I need to have read according to Goodreads, but it’s nearly half of what I read last year (I only read 20 books, mainly because my workload increased when the pandemic hit, not decreased).

I want to update this blog more. I really do. But I can’t make promises that I won’t be able to keep. I have sent out newsletters about two or three times since the last post on the blog. So if you want to get more frequent updates, I suggest you subscribe to that. I also post various updates on my reading and writing on my social media pages.

I hope y’all’s years have gone well so far! What are you guys reading? Do you have any goals for your writing or reading? Let me know in the comments below!

Site Survey

Hey guys!

Hope you’ve had a good few weeks! Sorry I haven’t been posting as much these days. I’ve had a hectic last couple of weeks.
This week I decided to send out another survey. I did one several months back, but viewership has increased since then so I thought I’d see what you guys’ thoughts on the site were! It’s not a long survey, probably will only take you five to ten minutes tops.

Thanks again guys for filling out the survey! It helps a lot!

Taking a Break

Hey all!
I’ve decided to take a break from posting this week. I’ve been insanely busy this past week or so and haven’t had any time for writing whatsoever. I don’t want to delay posting because it will end up being rushed. So I’m just taking the week off! Thank you all for your patience and I’ll see you all in two weeks!

Quick Break

Hey guys!

I just thought I’d write you all a post explaining the absence of one this week. I have a lot on my plate this week and I thought it would be wise if I took the week off from writing a new blog post so I can be sure to accomplish everything I need to.

As a short update: I did write more in #tIRS a couple of nights ago for the first time in a while. I ended up putting in about 1k words! Hopefully I’ll pick up steam with it and have the rough draft done soon.

Thank you all for your patience with me. I hope y’all are staying safe during this different time. Stay safe out there!

From my pen to your paper, may our swords never clash.

A Quick Break

Hey guys! This week I will not be posting a new article. I was pretty busy this past week and was not able to get much writing done. Though, I am close to crossing the 20k word mark in Book One of #tIRS, in fact I’m only 300 words from crossing it. But, I wasn’t able to write but a thousand words in it last week. I hope to accomplish more than that this week. My goal is to have a new article to you guys next Tuesday at 6AM (which is my goal every week, but isn’t happening today, quite obviously).

I recently got Scrivener, and am excited to try out this new writing program! I actually think that my writing will go a lot faster and smoother because I will be able to access so many notes at once and search for them. We shall see.

Thanks guys for your patience with me!

From my pen to your paper, may our swords never clash.
