I’m sure you’ve all been wondering what the hell is going on with updates to the site this month.
Short story: I’ve been recovering from a nasty flu without really any opportunity to recover at all with my job.
Long story: I work for one of the dumbest companies on Earth. So basically, my schedule got changed so I no longer have two days in a row off. If you’ve ever worked this schedule, you know that it lets you get nothing done and you have no time to relax.
The reason for this was told to us as that our call volume was going to dip in the next few weeks after the change. This despite the volume being way up because… reasons. I signed an NDA, so I can’t tell.
Anyway, they then immediately gave us a WHOLE MONTH of an extra hour of overtime because call volume was so high. Yes.
So the day this started, I got the flu. I only took one day off and suffered the rest of the week with only one day of rest. I’m still not feeling good, plus I just don’t have time off to rest and sleep … Continue reading
So I’ve accepted a commission to write a short story for a fan of Rune Breaker. I can’t go into detail, but it’s 20k words and I have to have it delivered by Christmas.
That means no update this week and possibly next depending on when I get done. Normally, I politely refuse commissions because they’re usually $20 for again 20k or more words, but let’s just say someone is paying for my friends’ Christmas presents so I write theirs. Couldn’t say no with a car payment and way too expensive insurance on the horizon.
So Happy holidays folks! I’m not on vacation, but I won’t really be around for about a week.
Having finally bought a car (but having to eat like a munk–chipmunk– for a week afterward, I have a lot to be thankful for and will be taking the week off.
Enjoy the holiday everyone!
So I just got blindsided by mandatory overtime on what’s meant to be my day off this week, so I need to do some life business during my scant 4 hours of peace the next two nights. No update this week.
Apparently, this is the the last overtime of the year, so maybe just maybe I can get on schedule after this.
As you’ve all no doubt noticed, my schedule has been very shaky these past few months. This week’s update for example will probably be up sometime Tuesday. If I’m able to get a chapter out on Monday morning, it’s a miracle. I’m going to change the update day in the coming weeks.
I had a really hectic weekend getting things done, and so didn’t get the latest chapter done. My plan is to have it up by Tuesday night.
My work and having to ride the bus… everywhere Saturday to get groceries… means I need one more day to finish this week’s chapter. Thank you for your patience.
Still making my apartment a home instead of a hole with a nerd in it. Which means I’m still one page away from finishing the next chapter.
So I have internet installation finally scheduled for this Thursday, but never trust an ISP about this stuff. If I don’t get internet this week, my new schedule at work is going to keep me from getting to the library to upload an update until next Wednesday, so there is a chance that there will be no update next Monday.
On the bright side, once I do have internet, things can start to get back to normal around here.
Okay guys, the first chapter of Descendants 102 – Tales of Consequence is a few pages from being done, but it’s not because of anything bad… mostly.
Thanks to the 4th of July, I had to work four ten hour shifts at my new job and didn’t get to write much. What I did get to write though is something I’m sure a lot of you were wondering when I’d get back to it: Soul Battery 3.
So one more week of delay, but for the best of reasons. Don’t worry, thinks will get back to normal. Even more normal once I get my next-next check and actually get a bed to replace my air matteress, which decided to spring a leak last night.
