I am taking off the rest of July and time in August to finish Gravesong, Book 2, tentatively titled ‘Huntsong’. You may notice that unlike every other break, I have not pinned a release date.
That’s because if I fail to write the second half of Gravesong (I did at least one half or up to two third last time), I will extend my break to finish it.
This is for two reasons. One, I’m up against a deadline, and two, I pushed way too hard last time I took a month off and burnt out. For my own health and the good of both this story and The Wandering Inn, I will not kill myself if I sense I’m between the hammer and anvil.
I’ll try to work efficiently, but writing a novel is very, very difficult. And I don’t have as much experience with that as I do with web serial writing, ironically. Well, two months to write a novel is still a bad idea.
Nor will I be turning off Patreon. I hope to give you something in August by returning, but Patreons noticed that I published drafts of Gravesong so if I’m happy with my work or need a break to show you something else, I will post the work. You may still consider this a less-content month for August, but I appreciate the support I’ve been given.
I’m determined to write a good story. And so I shall leave you with this chapter and let you know how it’s gone and what my timeline is later. For now, wish me luck, and thanks for reading and waiting.
