This week has been busy. My mind has been consumed with this one project of mine that that "probably" won't come out until next year. I say probably because that's when I really want to start working on it and publishing it, but I know that if I don't control my little obsession, I'll get ahead of myself, haha.
I really want to share this project with you. It's the necromancer one, and in a strange way, it comes from somewhere personal. So, I think this is something that combines a lot of past elements and future concerns. It's odd to say that about a necromancer story, ha. So I'll move on.
I "finished" the outline for book one. Finished in quotes because I went back over it, and the first eight chapters are already different from how I started. I'm really glad for that. I'm putting a lot of heart and dedication into this. Mortal Machines is going to be worked on. It just needs a lot of attention because there's a lot of hidden backstory and world building that has to be done in the interim. Mostly because I need content for Patreon. But also because this is what I do. This is what I love to do, and if I have it panned out now, then it will all pay off later.
I was thinking today while at work. We're having a sale, and in order to make our day, we have to sell twice the products because they're all on sale. But it's twice the reward because the inventory opened up so we're able to shift products around and keep things from being too crowded. This is how it is with writing for me right now. I'm doing twice the work for twice the reward. But it's working hard and smart. Not just one or the other.
Hopefully, when Mortal Machines comes in full form, I'll be able to present to y'all something I'm proud of. I also decided that I'm going to format my Ko-fi so that way it's more open for donations, so people don't have to subscribe to my Patreon if they don't want to. That'll help in the future, I'm sure, so that's what I'm thinking about while working on this outline.
