Whoa! I'm here! I'm here!

Regarding updates, SoFurry and marrying quantum mechanics and classical physics, given that God is infinite, and that the universe is also infinite, I would like a toasted tea-cake.

Hi all!

Just a quick update, since I feel guilty leaving my SoFurry watchers in the dark.

Astray's final chapter is at roughly 40,000 words (it should be over 50k when it's finished, making the overall size of the novel about 200,000 words; approximately the same size as my last one*). I'm working pretty quick at it, but I can't swear by any particular estimation of when it will be ready to be uploaded. It's the most important chapter of the most important story I've ever written so I'm trying to not rush things.

I'm sorry I neglect SF, I probably shouldn't. I have no real excuse outside of laziness - and the fact that I feel like a dork when I see my journals appearing on SF's main page. I feel like I'm being an attention whore; considering the volume of journals I upload on InkBunny, I'm sure other people would think the same if I started cross-posting them here! =3

I should point out I AM considering splitting the final chapter into two (again, since chapter 5 was initially part of it as well), except this time it would be to keep in with the chapter structure of previous chapters. It won't matter ultimately, but it does mean I'd upload that bit a little quicker. I'll see how it flows. I'm trying to avoid pissing people off with continuous, depressing, cliff-hanger endings then making them wait for the next chapter. 

 

Anyway, toodles, and I'll check back in soon. Godspeed, SoFurry sojourners!

 

* - not accounting for any extreme editing mutilation I may subject it to.

Well then don't leave us at those cliffhanger, depressing parts lol *smack upside head, lightly*, but I have a feeling as an artist you can't help yourself.

Editing mutilation; now there's a term to strike terror into any kit's heart, so nebulous - so threatening - without conveying exactly what it means. Kinda like "Permanent Record" -- which was funnier in the days of vinyl discs. *giggle* Consider enabling the button that allows folks to be notified that a new chapter has been posted? Think about it.

Yep! As far as I am aware, SoFurry doesn't allow you to alert people about specific chapters, however you can "+Watch" me to receive alerts whenever I upload a story or journal! I'd never dream of disabling that feature.

I've still got to respond to your PM and other comments. I'm sorry, I'm not ignoring anybody, I've been very busy over the last few weeks. It seems like things have quieted down though, so I should have some time to get things done. Ugh.

Don't worry about it, nothing I said was of any great import, just know that we are your fans, and we love what you write, if you write more we will read it, and if it takes time -- we'll forgive you. Know that. Really know it, I'm serious;
When a fan-boy comes along -- you must type it,
when the time crunch comes on down -- you must type it.
Type a plot, move a long, he'll read it short, he'll read it long,
So type it, type it good.
(apologies to any heads that devolving, are we not men?)
