I have a fiction press account if anyone wants to check that out
Yes English is my first language. Now then shut up about it. If you have a problem keep it to yourself. I'm getting ready to put my warpaint on and come and scalp you. :p You know who you are.
On another note when my computer went ass over tit I lost a good chunk of story data for older fics. This as factor significantly impedes me from rewriting or continuing those stories so...
This being said I would also take the time to profess my extreme annoyance with the way Naruto has progressed, and my belief it jumped the shark quite a while ago. I have no idea what the fuck possessed Kishimoto. What this specifically means for my fics in that setting is simple the loss of data coupled with my dislike for where the setting went means they may at some point in the future be rewritten before any updates occur. This is a best case scenario.
Updates will be slow be forewarned, but they will come.
The initial rewrite of TNN is progressing; I'm at roughly 20k. It still needs work but since I haven't posted anything recently I may start posting what I do have.
As for other projects I'm kind of off and on about rewrites. I will confess to have done absolutely nothing for God's Sword I've got ideas but nothing substantive at the moment so I'm not sure hopefully I'll have something by summer.
I may end up posting the rewritten TNN as a new story. If so it'll be posted in tandem with a new shorts segment. Hopefully by summer I'll have some new stuff for GS, or at least the new opening for it.
I'm going to do a two phase rewrite of TNN. The first will be rewriting everything with added perspectives, and entirely in third person. Step two will be expanding on that with a goal of minimum 1.5k scenes, at least 5k chapters, and general detailed descriptions. We'll see how that goes.
I'm alive. It honestly had slipped my mind it had been so long since I'd posted anything here. I don't really have anything new to add, I've been working on rewrites, and honestly trying to get back into Naruto.
I'm about a fifth of the way through rewriting my High School of the dead fic, and I'll start posting the rewrites once I finish chapter 5. My beta for God's Sword is still MIA, but I'm hoping to have the rewritten chapter 1 (for GS) up by March 15th. I don't really expect to do anything new, but I may end up doing like others have and just post a dump bin of story ideas. The only exception to that is I may try and get around to posting Chapter 1 of Dark Prince 3, but I'd really rather wait till after I've rewritten Dark Prince, and Kyushu Campaign.
My Beta for GS is still MIA however I am still working on the project. The biggest portion of that at the moment is the new prologue segment, which will address various questions and concerns that have been raised
Well I'm not sure when GS will be updated. Its still in Limbo at the moment. Eventually, whenever I get the sequel for TNN up, there will also be a generic snippet story ideas story going up (ala my Code Geass snippets and shorts) along side it to cover the many ideas I just don't have patience to write right now.
TNN is complete. Huzzah and cue the streamers. That being said GS is basically in Limbo for the time being, I really would have thought I'd have heard from my beta by this point, but who knows. Anyway I'll be tinkering with various things, some rewrites mainly, but I don't see any updates for at least the rest of the month.
I've been talking about rewrites for a while, and I know CoF has its fans. It does need to be rewritten, and its a good plot idea, but its going to be a while. Both it and FC need to be rewritten but it'll be months more likely than weeks. Its just not a real high priority at the moment. I expect I'll do WotP before either of those, but what will actually make the first will be probably be finishing up LF's stop gap rewrite (that is to say getting it to 200k, and fixing the most glaring plot issues)
So I've been looking through various things, and mainly figuring out what I'm going to focus on for fall and winter. I've been, for example, working on rewriting LF (my goal was 200k for 44 chapters), and thats just not gonna be enough. I've got too many plot lines running concurrent. There are not enough wizards scenes, not enough other goa'uld, and everyone else. To do what I need to do I'd need half a million words for just the ones I've got now, and this is just one example So what I figure I'm going to do is do 40-44, and that should put me a 200k or just over. Then I'm going to stop (for LF at the moment) go back reread, outline what I've got thus far, and make plans to go from there.
For more 'modern', current, or what have you projects I'm still working on them. I hope to have an answer about my old hard drive, and I should be getting some old notes back soon. What this means is that TNN, and GS will still continue to be updated. I can't say when, but I want to get at least to chapter 20 for GS before the year is over. I've got to rework the first 7 or so chapters of MP before I post 21, but that hopefully will be up before the new year.
Overall though I've rewrites planned for a lot of things, particularly my shorter (
GS16 is done, and awaits beta reading. If my beta doesn't respond by tonight I'll just email it again, and so hopefully it'll be be ready by Friday. So with that I'm going probably go back and work on TNN, but I have been working on a Star Trek project which has been of some interest. I'm also in the planning for various rewrites again for some of the smaller projects.
One of my friends is going to check in about fixing my old hard drive the next time he's in town, which hopefully will yield good news. GS 16 is half way done and will be the next new chapter I post.
After that I'll probably work on rewriting some older chapters for the duration of July for various stories, because some of them really need it.
TNN has been updated. GS16 is under construction, and TNN 13 is also well on its way. Unfortunately thats how its going to be for the forseeable future until I can find out about repairing my old hard drive, which hopefully I might get some good news Monday. Still TNN and to a lesser extent GS will be the main things getting updated unless I start a new projected.
After a thoroughly monotonous hiatus I'm back. GS15, after some edits, and with the addition of a disclaimer will be posted when it returns from my beta Zim. Following the surprising update of the High School of the Dead Manga, I'm going back to make alterations to TNN 11, but it should be posted around the time of GS15.
For MP ... I have no idea when updates will follow. I may proceed to rewrite the older chapters and find someone to beta the story for me after I finish rewriting the first ten chapters. Hopefully by that point I'll have the stuff salvaged from my old hard drive, but if not I'll probably just rewrite chapter 21 from scratch, which is what I'm leaning towards now.
My old hard drive is still out of commission. TNN chapter 10 is able to be posted because I had a rough draft on the internet I could work off of. This chapter is provisional for the moment, and may be altered once or if I can get my new computer up and running. (and when I can salvage my old hard drive)
Well unfortunately my computer seems to have suffered a major malfunction yesterday, so any future updates are on indefinite hold until thats been fixed.
Well a mixture of things has resulted in being delayed, some of this is obviously holiday related. Tomorrow I'll try and get GS 15 finished, and sent to my beta, but for the mean time I'll settle for updating TNN.
The following is my plan for the rest of the year, I want to get MP21 posted, along with GS 15, I also want to get all of Part I of the New Normal up (thats chapters 1-10, so five chapters) and finish the initial rewrite of Lightning Fervor. As far as priority goes The New Normal and God's Sword take precedence over other projects. The New Normal's first ten chapters are mostly done, and only really require polishing, and editing, along with some expansion work. As it stands GS 15 is about 20% done so I should be able to it done on schedule as well. That is all.
Well my plan thus far is to have GS 15 and MP 21 both up before new year's eve. Other than that I'm going to keep working on my High School of the Dead fic, the New Normal, and probably try and finish polishing up Lightning Fervor.
All right the first chapter of my High School of the Dead fic is up hopefully its semi decent. I really should be working on other stuff but it kind of nagged me into posting.
I hope to have GS 15 up soon, but we'll see if that actually happens or not. Any other stories are probably delayed until my hard copy notes are returned to me from a third party in real life. In other news I got talked into doing a Self Insert given that by some miracle I can churn three thousand word chapters out (mainly by sticking to canon) this (setting is High School of the Dead), and a mess of first person. Currently its been posted elsewhere under a different account, but I'll probably post it here... eventually.
After some delay chapter 14 of God's Sword is up. The delay is a result of real life issues, and really can't be helped until I get certain hard copies of my plot notes back from someone so chapter 15 might be a while, December is probably the best case scenario. At some point over the next year I will be attempting to facilitate rewrites of other fics including expanding on some of my newer stories, but I probably won't post anything new any time soon, unless its a short.
I have rewritten one of my old Naruto fics (Price of Power) I will probably continue work on some other rewrites in the mean time. Right now I plan on looking through my other fics and seeing what all I can work on and complete rewrites of the posted chapters before the end of the year.
MP20 has been posted. The story will be on hiatus, most likely, until November or December. I will be focusing on GS in the mean time, and hopefully rewriting older stuff. On that note again certain parties have my rewrite notes so as it some projects will be unfortunately delayed.
MP20 is rapidly approaching completion it is entirely possible it will go up later today, though I would say Friday is more likely just to be conservative.
I've accelerated work on MP20, I expect to be half way done with the chapter by tomorrow, which would be good. As I mentioned once it goes up, I'm going to stop for a bit and focus on GS14, which I hope to go up sometime towards the end of the month.
MP19 has been posted, I elected due to real life issues to post it in an abridged format. The chapter is still over 5k, however I was forced to remove some elements, and add some of those to the next chapter. I am not sure what my immediate goals are, however I hope to finish off year one, culminating MP20 being posted hopefully at the end of this month, or at the start of October. At that point MP will drop in priority, and GS will take priority at least until I get to chapter 15, which should be around the same time.
It will be at that point I'll do my end of the year wrap up, and probably focus entirely on rewrite work. So once October rolls around expect new chapters to slow down significantly, probably until December.
MP19 is just over half way done I expect to have the chapter posted within the week, if all goes well. Lightning Fervor rewrites will unfortunately have to postponed until such time as my outlines are returned to me by the parties who are holding them.
GS13 has been posted the next chapter (tentatively titled Scarlet Dawn) will be slightly more action packed. As for rewrites for older stories they will be slightly delayed due to real life events. Aforementioned real life problems should not effect the next chapter of Magic Perhaps, which should be up sometime in mid September.
On another note I do have some good news nearer towards the end of this year I will start working on rewrite work for my old Naruto fics.
GS13 will be sent to my beta shortly.
GS13 is 80% complete, I've started the final scene of the chapter as it is, and I will probably message my beta Friday.
Chapter 13 of God's Sword is 50% complete, hopefully it might be finished by this weekend at which point I'll send it to the story's beta, and we'll see when I get it back.
Chapter 13 of God's Sword is 20% complete I hope that barring no further unexpected occurrences it will be finished by the end of the month.
Just a minor note here well I'm behind schedule, though I hope to actually be able to get an update for God's Sword up by the end of this month.
I will be beginning to start writing the next chapter of God's Sword shortly, probably starting today or tomorrow.
Magic Perhaps chapter 18 has been completed, and been posted.
Magic Perhaps is just over eighty percent completed at present. I do not expect to finish the chapter today though, Saturday is a more likely update day, though we will see how far I get.
Writer's block is still slowing down chapter 18, but I hope the chapter to be half way finished by tonight. After that I'm going to try and start up on the next chapter of God's sword. Of course depending on how much the Olympics distract me and if the writer's block breaks I might go ahead and start focusing on chapter 19 in the hope of finishing off year one as quickly as possible.
If writer's block doesn't break soon, and God's sword is likewise slow I'll probably try and burn time with working on rewrites for Lightning Fervor, which is coming along nicely, and Final Crescendo, which I haven't even started on. With Regards to Lightning Fervor's rewrite I expect to have initial rewrites done by September, hell I might even go ahead and see about posting Chapter 45, but the new chapter is very much unlikely unless chapter 19 or perhaps 20 of Magic Perhaps is already finished at that time.
EDIT: Olympics are proving entertaining enough, and the next chapter of Magic Perhaps is sitting at just below sixty percent, I expect completion possibly as early as Friday.
I'm hitting some writer's block, which is unfortunate, with regards to MP. In any event sometime later this year I'm going to take the time to go back and flesh out Dark Prince some more, and simply combine the Kyushu campaign arc back into the main story, and delete the separate story. I'll probably result in about another 20000 words at least of new material I imagine, maybe slightly less, maybe more.
In any event the Lightning Fervor rewrite should top out about 200000 words, meaning it will roughly double in material length before I started the rewrite. The plot has also subtly changed, and in some places drastically changed, and I've certainly nerfed certain things. I really would like to focus more on the wizards, and the SGC interacting in a larger world in this particular story.
Eventually I will start rewriting Scepter, Crown, and Powers, but that will most likely be sometime in 2013 when I get some free time. For example when I finish rewriting Powers I expect the amount of new material to put the story at roughly three times the size it was at, possibly closer to four times the length. I think this will better reflect that the chapters cover a period of three or four years worth of story. Like LF all three mentioned rewrites will be done in increments, because I won't be able to sit down and do an entire rewrite at once.
I'll start working on Chapter 18 of Magic Perhaps sometime this week, and possibly the next chatper of God's Sword. My main focus the past week had been real life, and some rewriting of older stories.
Chapter 17 of Magic Perhaps is currently somewhere between 85 and 90 percent complete so it may go up sometime later today. In other news while I will not be starting any major new projects I may begin an HP Shorts section, upon urgings from other parties, (ala my existing Code Geass shorts) sometime in the future.
EDIT: I probably shouldn't have but I decided to stay up and rush out Chapter 17, so it is up for now. If anyone is reading this, and is interested in beta reading for me, you can send me a pm. I'm going to unwind with some scheduled rewriting and then I'll probably work on the next chapter of God's Sword, after that I'll try and work on the next chapter of Magic Perhaps. Hopefully chapter 18 won't get bogged down like this one did.
After a week of writer's block I am pleased to announce that Chapter 17 of Magic Perhaps is sitting at roughly 50% finished, I'm hoping to have it up by Tuesday, however that may be optimistic. I do expect to hit the sixty percent completion mark for the chapter before the morning.
Recognizing the writers block issue I may turn to other projects, such as rewrites, and God's Sword, but MP 17 is my primary focus and will be the first to update.
EDIT: Chapter 17 just reached 70 % written, which means if all goes well I could possible meet the deadline to have it done before the end of the week, and possibly as early as tuesday.
God's Sword chapter 12 is awaiting beta-ing, and I am begining work on chapter 17 of Magic Perhaps today.
EDIT: Zim has completed Beta reading GS12, it has been posted.
God's Sword chapter 12 is half done, once its finished it will be sent for betaing and will go up after I once over it again. Once that is done my next priority is chapter 17 of Magic Perhaps.
Its been a while since I posted an update or work schedule here, but the following is the plan for the rest of the year. As a general note I don't plan on starting any new series, or stories any time soon.
Now Dark Prince 3 is not going to be going up this year by all likelihood, I've suspended that at least until God's Sword is well into Arc 2, and all things considered I should probably rewrite DP 1, and 2, and combine them into the same story, and pick up from there. Final Crescendo won't be getting updated until after I've had a chance to rewrite it. So thus
Rewrites planned for Late 2012
Lightning Fervor rewrites will continue
Holy Trinity will be getting an extensive rewrite of the current chapters.
Earth Abides, I am in the process of expanding the current chapters, this will be the easiest of the rewrites, and may even be done as early as late July.
War against the Two Lions is something I want to do a more indepth rewrite too
Final Crescendo is in a similiar situation, and needs an indepth rewrite, but this will be much more time consuming than War Against the 2 Lions, even though the latter may involve me having to replay Final Fantasy tactics.
In adddition to these I would like at some point to start rewriting Scepter of Darkness, but like the Lightning Fervor rewrite this will be very extensive, and probably not something I have the time for at the moment.
Planned, or otherwise expectable, new chapters for Late 2012
Magic Perhaps: this is my primary project
God's Sword: this is my secondary concern due to popular request
The Code Geass Shorts may or may not be updated, but this is a side project and probably wont happen on any kind of schedule.
For anything else don't expect anything, I'm trying to remain organized, anything else isn't likely to be touched, even the Dark Prince series, which will be the next major thing to get my attention.
God's Sword Chapter 12 is now just over twenty percent completed, I expect it, and possibly chapter 17 of Magic Perhaps to be completed within the month. In addition to these I'll be continuing rewriting some older chapters, and attempting to post them. June was a particularly abnormal month for me, and certainly not the norm as far as update pace goes. I do however hope to get year one of Magic Perhaps finished before December, which means I have roughly three chapters left, which means I might be able to do it by September.
By some oddity Chapter 16 is nearly done, this is far sooner than I expected, it may be up as early as today, which I find unlikely, tomorrow is a far more likely date given I only have one scene left to post.
EDIT: Chapter 16 by some miracle is finished, and uploaded, my next update will probably be God's Sword chapter 12.
Chapter 16 of Magic Perhaps is forty percent complete, I expect to be half way done before the end of the month, possibly even further depending on progress. That however will largely depend on what happens this weekend. Once Chapter 16 is up, I will start working on the next chapter of God's sword during my spare time.
Chapter 15 of Magic Perhaps if uploaded, I plan to start work on the next chapter immediately, with intermittent stops for rewrites on other things, and work on God's Sword.
God's Sword Chapter 11 is finished, and beta-ed. It is now posted.
Magic Perhaps Chapter fifteen is sixty percent complete, so it should be finished hopefully within the week, and if not it will be done before the end of June.
My primary focus is ten stories now, I've narrowed it down that far, and really its been narrowed down further because more than half of that is work bringing them up to what I consider my present par. This means rewriting older stories, and fixing some of the most blatant mistakes. Now this means I don't intend to start the next book in the Dark Prince series any time soon. My primary focus remains Magic Perhaps.
Chapter 15 (Winter Interlude) of Magic Perhaps is 23%, roughly, complete, which I consider a good sign. Hopefully it will be finished by the end of the month, but I'm not sure of that yet. Once Chapter 15 is done I'm hoping that Chapter 16 will be a rather quick chapter to write, after that it will be the 'home stretch' as it were for finishing up year 1. Anyway the goal for the year is to finish up year one before trying to possibly moving on to other things.
I expect for sometime later in the year to have a planned work list for the rest of the year.
God's Sword Chapter 11 will be undergoing editing hopefully soon.
