I know there are some of you expecting more of The Spellweaver of Dern; you’ll be happy to know that I have every intention of continuing with the expansion, creation, and propagation of my fantasy world. When do you say?
Well, I think we’re due for a little discussion on that. Firstly, I have to say that I am somewhat ill from the lack of writing over the last few months. The situation has been explained ad nauseum–school was killing me, literally–and so I won’t go into any detail with it. School, however, is almost over. How much time is left? Thursday, June 12th, 2008 at 4 PM. That’s when my last essay is due. Then the quarter will be, for all intensive purposes, over. I may or may not take a course over summer, a matter which will be heavily discussed with myself and likely with my girlfriend, who will no doubt have objections to such a conception.
That said, everything will be falling back into place. Effective Friday, June 13th, 2008 at whenever I wake up (likely 8:13 AM), all of the following prior personal goals will resume:
- Write 2,000 words a day or more.
- Read 100 pages a day or more.
- Edit two short stories or two novel chapters a month.
- Submit at least one story a month, preferably more.
I expect that the next chapter in SoD will be up the week after next (which would not be the week starting tomorrow for those of us still on the 8th). I intend to write the chapter I have and drive forward with it. Hopefully I don’t stick my food in my mouth. I also think I am going to attempt a rough drawing of a new continent to be put up for your perusal. We’ll see.
So that is what I am promising to do, or at least that is what I’m promising myself to do. Yeah!
