March 6th Update

A little later than I had intended, yesterday’s meeting took up a lot of time and I ended up taking care of things at work afterwards despite it being my day off.

By the time I got home I just wanted to relax and my first mistress was more than happy to help. Naturally, that means I ended up starting yet another Skyrim game and ran around trying to stick with whatever story I was making up for them in my head.

As usual, the success was largely a matter of opinion.

Considering my intended Wizard became a Spellsword -which I suppose is a Warlock, actually- well, you can guess what my opinion was on the matter.

But you didn’t come here to listen to me talk about my Skyrim playthrough – though if you’d be interested in that sort of thing I can always start writing it down somewhere as I play and maybe it can be used as the base of a story later – you came because you want to know what the hell is going on with Sealkeeper.

Or, that’s what I’m assuming anyway. I’ve been wrong before.

On the subject of Sealkeeper, however, you’ll be pleased to know we’ve reached the 40% mark of chapter 72. I may write some more before work tonight- I might be able to get it to 70 or 80%, actually- but the goal is to have it done tomorrow so I can start 73 on Friday.

Hopefully with that I can have the chapter done by 3/11 when I post chapter 71. That would mean I have the next two chapters ready to go and I hope to get to the point where I always have 5 chapters in reserve. Not only would that cover me if something happened- like my mistress feeling especially needy. She’s calling me now, actually, and the temptation is hard to resist- but it would give me some leeway to perhaps start on some other stories.

I’ve had a lot of ideas over the last three years but I’ve always been scared I might distract myself from Sealkeeper and make it harder to actually finish it. With 5 chapters in reserve, however, I don’t have to worry so much and can try something else for a week or two just to see what comes of it.

If I can still manage to maintain 5 spare chapters I may even start posting other works to Fanfiction.net for you to enjoy.

Yeah, I know what you’re thinking. “Eyazahrid, you’ve barely managed to get yourself to the point where you’re consistently updating a single story weekly with small 5k chapters, what the hell are you thinking?”

And I agree completely.

I’ll still probably try it though. If it doesn’t work, well, that’s what the reserve chapters are for. Gods above know I have enough trouble juggling work, my mistress, and this story as it is, throwing another story into the mix would certainly be interesting.

And who knows, maybe instead of another fanfiction I’ll try my hand at an original work instead.

Okay, you can stop laughing now.

Seriously though, even if it’s crap I only need one book on Amazon for $0.30 to be a published author. I can put it on a business card or something.

It won’t mean much, but it will look impressive. Sometimes that’s all you need.

I’ll end this here but I’d love to hear your opinions on the matter, so please feel free to use the comment button, contact me through the contact page- I still don’t know how it works, actually, or shoot me a PM on Fanfiction.net.

There are other options, of course, but I don’t have the time to list them all. if you want to get creative with reaching out to me go ahead, it should prove amusing.

Until I next have your attention,

Eyazahrid

  1. People give fanfiction a lot of crap… But LOOK, really look at Sealkeeper. You used names. You used places. You used the canon conception of chakra/chakra usage. That’s it. The concept of ninja groups fighting with magical powers isn’t new, or invented by Naruto. If you had changed some names and a few details, you could have marketed Sealkeeper as original. Call them ‘runes’ or ‘glyphs’, change names, make Mito a ‘demonic spirit’…. Yeah the parallels are clear, but none of those things are Naruto specific. Naruto may be popular but it didn’t actually bring anything new to the genre.

    As far as I’m concerned Sealkeeper IS an original work, and a damn good one, because there’s no way you’re incapable of making the few relatively small changes to make it legally original material.

    1. Thank you for your support, reading your comment was an excellent start to my day. I have certainly considered going through and making such changes after Sealkeeper’s completion so its fantastic to hear that others believe it will work.
