Novel month 2018 – Day 26

Getting close to the end now. An hour and a half wrestling with Node cut into my writing time today, but I still managed to make a good day’s worth of progress through Chapter 8. There’s action aplenty now, making up for all those boring days a couple of weeks ago. All that’s left is the finale, really.

Once more into the breach. The battle has begun. I won’t say it’s anything too interesting yet, but give me time. What little bit I have left, anyway.

So, Chapter 8 is the next to last chapter in the story. As usual, I’m using it for the big action events, while the finale will be more wrapping things up. That’s just how I roll. And I’ve got a very good chance of pulling it off now.

Tension is at an all-time high for this story. Now, it’s time for all that buildup to pay off. Chapter 7 is done, and we’ve only got 2 left. The next one is the battle I’ve spent the past week and a half preparing for. Never written a Bronze Age fight scene before, so this’ll be fun.

Novel month 2018 – Day 23

As day follows night, so too does Black Friday follow Thanksgiving. We’re all as stuffed as the turkeys were yesterday, but that won’t stop me from writing. I’m now most of the way through Chapter 7, and the drama is giving way to action. One more week. I think I can do this. (Oh, and you guys hope I get one of the jobs out of this next batch I applied for today, okay?)

Novel month 2018 – Day 22

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Yes, I did write a bit today, because there’s a whole lot of nothing between waking up (around 10:30) and dinner with your family (as soon as I get done typing this). So I made it a little farther through Chapter 7, and I’m on the precipice of the story’s climax. It’s looking pretty good, and it’ll actually tie up a few loose ends I left hanging in the main Otherworld stories. I can’t wait to see how it turns out.

Not really feeling it much today. I was busy with code work. Yes, I still do the programming thing. I’ve been getting back into it lately, and now I have…ideas. Hopefully, I’ll be able to show them off soon.

Anyway, I did finish Chapter 6, and I even started Chapter 7. It’s all building up to some major events, and I feel confident I can finish the whole thing by month’s end. The 50K mark should be relatively easy. Getting to the end, though, we’ll see.

Would you believe I actually forgot I was releasing a story today? “The Candle’s Flame” came out, and you can pick it up over at my Patreon for a pledge of only a dollar a month.

As for the current writing project, Seasons Change, it’s still moving forward. Chapter 6 is almost done, though I couldn’t quite finish it today. Drama, tension, and soon to be action. It’s been a rough road, but I think I can put it all together.

Release: The Candle’s Flame (A Bridge Between Worlds 6)

And so we come to journey’s end.

In the entire history of her people, Etanya was the first to travel to another world. Her new friends, including one who had become somewhat more, all came from theirs to hers, but she went the other way. No story, no tale, could prepare her for what she saw. Surrounded by unfamiliar faces, strange machines, and things she can only describe as magic, she wants nothing more than to find her place. That place, she well knows, is at Ramon’s side, but can he take that final step?

This is the end of A Bridge Between Worlds, but it’s far from the last you’ll see of the Otherworld setting. No, I have greater things in store for it. Season 2 of the main story, titled Return to the Otherworld, will debut in early 2019. Until that time, you can get all of my novels and novellas in this setting, plus the many other works I’ve written, at my Patreon. All it takes is a pledge of a few dollars a month. You can cancel anytime, and you get to keep anything you’ve downloaded. No DRM, no fuss. It’s almost too easy.

Whatever you do, I’d like to thank you for traveling with me down this strange and wonderful road. I’ll see you again soon, so keep reading!

Moving through Chapter 6, but I’m getting a little bogged down. That’s not just from the story, though. I’ve written almost as much in general communication, or that’s what it feels like. Anyway, I’m moving on, so don’t worry about me. Setting up for a big finish…I hope.
