I have 18 chapters up as of today for TZC6. The heavy writing this month is a nice change from, oh, the rest of the years. What's worse is this writing has stimulated more writing. Now I am flush with ideas of other books I want to write and will hopefully get around to one day.
It looks like I'll just be posting chapters here. I have too many things going on right now to mess about with doing it another way. I'm up to Chapter 12 posted here now and I am trying to post at least three times a week.
Non-TZC6 news; I finished up the built in shelves in my kitchen. This is a big deal for me. First all the bamboo flooring was a challenge, then so many other things have just come along demanding my time. Now I only have about four more weeks worth of renovations to complete before I can settle back in...just in time for the Holidays!
I was going to use Smashwords and just post the entire book at the end of each days writing, making it 'free' for the taking while I work on it. I still may do that, however it won't be until Saturday or Sunday at the earliest. So to keep things flowing I will be posting a chapter a day here until then. Tonight I posted Chapter 7.
No, not a status update where in I tell you all about what I've been doing lately. More of what the hell have I been doing? I have been on this earth 48 years, man! And where am I? I think I should pursue happiness more and the societal definition of success less. After all another 10 or 20 years and I'll probably be dead. Potentially 5/6ths of my life is already gone!
I posted another chapter to the Umbrage Saga. I am sort of using the Fantasy writing to clear my pallet between chapters of the other books, weird, right? I think so. Right now I have spoons in many pots and I seem to wake up each morning with different chapters for the random projects I am working on in my head. I am just going with it. While writing on the saga today I mentally put together chapter two of TZC6 too, it will be a decent one, but like all the early chapters of my books there is some set up that needs to set the stage.
I think I have finally got a handle on how I want TZC6 to go. For your reading pleasure, I've posted chapter 1 now here: TZC6:Unnamed Chapter 1
I wrote a little on the fantasy story today: A1 - Assualt on Blacktooth Ridge I kind of like wordsmything on it as it is so far out of my 'normal' genre and, well, honestly, it will never pay. The world belongs to Troll Lord Games so it is fan fiction, more or less. There seems to be a purity in writing something I won't profit from. LOL, or maybe I'm listening too much to my inner Joru?
I've been adding a lot of the old content back to the website these last few days. All of the first three books are up now. TZC1, TZC2, TZC3 and the first five stories of Billions are back too. I still have a lot of the old content to get through and I am certain I will not replace everything as it was. For instance, I may not re-post the side novels out of the Zombie Chronicles Universe again.
You just have to love the fall, don’t you? I’m mostly talking to the zombie aficionados out there. I mean fall equals decay, like a zombie’s slowly rotting corpse. I’ve always like the fall and the spring, in that order. Winter is a bit boring, cold, sterile almost and not a lot going on, to the point where you start to long for a snow storm, even as an adult. Summer is merely okay for being out on the deck, on account of the gawddamned flies.
