A quick update this month: All the versions of Chapter 5 of Lords of Infinity are now complete, and I’m now about halfway through the first branch of Chapter 6.

It’s certainly been an interesting month.
Things aren’t too bad where I am, at least where the COVID-19 outbreak is concerned. The BC provincial government has generally been pretty good about taking precautions, and our new case count is both low and generally declining (nearly 2/3rds of active cases in British Columbia have already recovered).
That being said, I’m still taking precautions, sheltering in place, keeping my distance from other people, washing my hands regularly, and doing all the other stuff I can to avoid catching or spreading the infection. My chances of getting the Coronavirus are slim, but it takes a collective effort to keep it that way.
In the meantime, I’m now about halfway done the last iteration of Chapter 5. After that, I’ve got the two versions of Chapter 6 to write – which is where stuff really starts going off the rails.
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, as is the first installment of A Creator’s Guide to Writing and Worldbuilding, a new Patreon-funded column about the mechanics of well… writing and worldbuilding.
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.
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.
As of this update, all three versions of Chapter 3 of Lords of Infinity are now finished, which means I’ve started working on the two versions of Chapter 4.
Both iterations of Chapter 4 are relatively large. Although I’m certainly going to try to get Chapter 4A done by this time next month, it may take somewhat longer than that.
I’m currently busy working on the second half of Chapter 2 of Lords of Infinity right now. Hopefully that will be done by this time next month.
