Hello, dear friends. I hope you’ve been having a good week. Mine has been so-so. I hate to tell you that Second-Hand Rumors continues to be a thorn in my side, but it really has been thus far. The chapter for tomorrow is mostly written, though it needs to be edited first by me and then by my wife. I’m not sure if I’ll be able to post it tomorrow, but I will do my best to get it up. I always feel bad when Second-Hand Rumors chapters go up super late, and then a few people like it and I’m like…shit, someone might have been waiting on that. So I am sorry, the wife is working today and tomorrow so it may have to come out on the weekend.
Jack and Stan is now heading into the end game for the second part. Without giving too much away, we’re going to be getting some more information on the Cult of the Outer Plant gods, which a dark parody of H.P. Lovecraft. I’m very excited for some new ideas, though that does mean massive rewrites for the coming chapters. It will be worth it, because we get to see Samantha Goodbody kicking ass and taking names again. Ah! I’ve said too much, moving on. I’m just going to bite the bullet and buy something to get the info from my hard drive in the next few weeks. It’s rapidly reaching the point where I need to just get that done with.
On the Total War front, I’ve now got 50 turns under my belt, so I know what to expect for the forseeable future in terms of storytelling. I hope that I can get started on that soon, but given my difficulties writing Second-Hand Rumors, that might be a bit of a stretch. Liam’s life is going to get so much more difficult soon. Oh, and of course, it didn’t help that my keyboard died this last week. I bought a new one and then had to immediately return that one, because when I’m writing, I don’t normally smash my keys like I’m Beethoven in a creative frenzy. I wish I did. I don’t. As always, thank you for stopping by, dear friends. I will hold a special seat for you by my hearth until you return.
