Hey Folks, weekly status update time.
This week saw the release of another of my older stories, Mind Matters (originally Mind Matters – Twisted Love but I simplified it down). I originally released the story as a Valentine’s day story, so the symmetry seemed appropriate.
Work on new material has been a little more tepid than I would have liked. A combination of having to make an unexpected trip, bad weather, and the day job being more draining that usual all combined to pretty much kill forward progress. I think part of the problem is that my current project is extremely long, 80k words, and a story like that is nearly impossible to work on in bits and pieces. Since I can’t find a good chunk of time, I can’t progress on it.
In a way, this highlights why the old serialized release format was so good for me. It allowed me to put out a little bit of progress when I could. I still think that sticking with a longer format is a good idea, but I may reverse my decision to only ever work on one project at a time. I think having one story that’s longer and more meaty, as well as one that’s a bit more light-hearted (and sex heavy) will pay off in the long run.
Either way, we’ll see how things go. I still have a couple backlog items that I’m working on getting re-released, but there will probably be a bit of a dry spell after that as I get things back underway. No news on what the next release will be, as nothing’s close enough to even be teased yet, but I think I may start working on something in the 30K range that’s a little less deep, along with my major project.
That’s all for this week. Thanks as always for your support.
