So I’ve been keeping to a strict once-a-week schedule for gen 2 so far and I’m overall enjoying it. So far, I think gen 2 is way better than the first and I’m enjoying writing it and hearing your speculations and commentary. Up until now, I’ve been ahead with my chapters as you guys might have seen on my chapter listing. I like that. But as you can guess from my wording just now, I’ve been ahead until now. I’m not anymore. The next chapter isn’t written. I know the title of it (it’s in the chapter list, after all), but besides that, I don’t have any photos I’m happy with and I’ve already scrapped one version of it.
So, here’s the thing – I refuse to go back to haphazardly writing the chapter two days before, or the day before, or even the day of posting. It’s what I did with gen 1 and I’m incredibly unhappy with large sections of it. It doesn’t help that I’ve been in a funk of feeling super bad about myself and my work, and it also doesn’t help that I’m pretty much only working on MVS. The sequel to CoM is entirely on hold. I tried to force myself to work on it and that failed. Another story idea I’ve had is mostly just in my head and my notebook. I don’t have any illusion that work on other stories will go much faster just because I take a break from posting MVS, but it can’t hurt.
The next chapter, thus, will not be this Saturday, nor will it be the next, but on the 13th of October, I’ll be ready to post the next chapter, if everything goes according to plan. I just need a little while to have some more buffer chapters, to find space in my brain for my new story, and just to… kind of relax. I’ll still be around to read and comment. In fact, I just finished one story, so I’m off to read another now, which’ll be great. But posting the story is on hold for now.
Thanks for the continued support and for reading my stuff. I’ll see you in the next post – at the latest on October the 13th.
P.S: That’s not a sneak peek image, btw. It was a photoshoot that I’m not happy enough with that I want to post the rest. Hope you enjoy this little bit of it anyway and maybe I’ll post some more from it if I feel like re-shooting some pics.
