June Update

Both iterations of Chapter 11 of Lords of Infinity are now finished, which means I am now doing prep work for Chapter 12, which is the last full chapter. Of course, once that’s done, I still have epilogues, side-content, and art to do before we’re ready for publication, but we are definitely nearing the final stages now.

Needless to say, it’s a bit busy around here.

This month’s A Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding, A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea, and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are all up.


May Update

I just passed the 35 000 word mark for the second part of Chapter 11 of Lords of Infinity today. This half will be a bit longer than the other, mostly because instead of containing one path, it actually kind of contains two. Obviously I won’t be spoiling what that means quite yet, but needless to say, I’m trying to do all that I can to ensure that every sort of player is able to get a satisfying path through the endgame.

As usual, this month’s A Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding is up, this time with the first installment of what might be a very long multi-part series on worldbuilding a fictional society. This month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea, and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are up as well


April Update

I am now about 30 000 words into the first version of Chapter 11 of Lords of Infinity. We’re well into the endgame now, with the climax of the story in full swing. The dust isn’t going to settle until it’s over, and I am very much looking forward to sharing with you the culmination of all these words and all of this work.

In other news, A Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding is back, with a new article on writing series and serial fiction. This month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea, and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are also both up.


March Update

I am currently about 20 000 words into Chapter 10 of Lords of Infinity right now. This is the chapter that sets up the final conditions for the endgame, which plays out in chapters 11 and 12. While Lords of Infinity is far from complete, I’m definitely feeling it come together right about now

This month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea, and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are now up. If all goes well, there should be a new entry in The Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding next month as well, so feel free to look forward to that.


March Update

I’m now working on Chapter 5B of Lords of Infinity, and a rough estimate puts me at maybe 30-40% done at the moment. This one should be a shorter chapter than the last, though I don’t know by how much. After taking a look at what I’ve got planned, I’ve decided to divide Chapter 5 into three versions, which means I won’t be able to get to Chapter 6 until the beginning of May, if things go well.

This month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are now up, so go ahead and check those out. I’ll also be starting a third Patreon column, entitled A Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding starting next month, so look forward to that as well.


February Update

I’m almost done Chapter 5A of Lords of Infinity. As I mentioned last month, this is likely to be another big one. I’m already at 65k words, and there’s still a bit more to go. Hopefully it’ll be done at the end of the month, which will give me March to work on Chapter 5B, which should be a bit shorter.

As usual, this month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are also now up, so go check those out if you haven’t already.


January Update

Happy New Year!

I’ve started working Chapter 5A of Lords of Infinity, which is likely to be another rather large one. The next few chapters after should be a bit shorter (and therefore be finished a bit quicker), but I obviously have to finish working on this one before I can consider those.

As usual, this month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are also now up. If you would like to support more of these worldbuilding articles, you can donate to my Patreon. Patrons get early access, a chance to vote on next month’s topics, and (at the highest tier) the ability to suggest new topics to be voted on.


December Update

When I started Chapter 4B, I thought it’d be substantially shorter than 4A.

I was right, but only assuming a very loose definition of “substantial”. The second part of Chapter 4 clocks in at about 70k words, which is still quite a bit more than what I was expecting. I’m running some tests on it now, and after that  I’m going to focus on balancing and polish for a bit until I start work on 5A in the new year.

This month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are also now up for general perusal. As usual, if you want early access, a chance to vote on next month’s topics, or simply want to support my work further, you can donate to my Patreon.


November Update

I’ve started work in the second iteration of Lords of Infinity‘s Chapter 4 this week. As I mentioned last month, I’m hoping it’ll be shorter than the first half (which clocked in at about 85k words, making it the second-longest chapter I’ve ever written). After that, I’ll be working on Chapters 5 and 6.

Beyond that, I’m likely to take a “break” for a month or so, to work on the additional side-features of the estate management system (random events, major projects etc) that I haven’t be able to tackle yet.

As usual, this month’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are also now up.


October Update

I’ve been working on Chapter 4A of Lords of Infinity this whole last month, and it’s proving a particularly large project. I just topped 75k words, and it’s still not finished. Hopefully, I’ll be able to polish it off sometime this week or the next, and hopefully, the second version of Chapter 4 won’t be anywhere near as long.

October’s installments of A Soldier’s Guide to the Infinite Sea and An Adventurer’s Guide to the Fledgling Realms are also now up.
