Well, that didn’t go to plan.
I ended up sleeping in way later than I had been anticipating so I rushed to work and only had time to type a few paragraphs. Still, I’m writing this just after finishing chapter 80 so definitely some good news.
I say “finished”, but technically it’s only at 96%. I finished a scene and realized I couldn’t add anything after it without destroying the mood I had set. More like stumbled upon, really, but what really matters is that it was there.
I also immediately typed up the next scene for chapter 81 and have that at 5.84% so it’s all there, just not all in one chapter. It’s like DLC, but free!
You just have to wait.
My proposed schedule for chapters is in tatters, so I’ll whip up a new one and hope I can stick to it. Chapter 76 was just posted earlier- yesterday, by the time I’m writing this- so I need chapter 82 done by April 22nd in order to have five chapters after posting 77.
This seems, well, entirely doable actually. Huh, I think we’ve made it.
Chapter 81 needs to be done by the 18th and chapter 82 can be finished on the 22nd at the latest which means that if everything goes to plan I’ll be having chapter 83 done by the 25th and be able to use the 26th, 27th, and 28th to start that Skyrim story.
Damn, writing something new? I don’t know if I’m more excited at the idea or terrified that its’ going to be a horrible mistake. Should entertain you lot either way, I suppose.
I had been wanting to include a little discussion- I say that, but with just me talking it’s more of a lecture- about Kurenai and what my plans had been for her and her story but I really need to get to bed. So, on the next update I’ll include it so you can all see what my intentions had actually been.
You know, because you’ll never actually see them in the story at this point.
Anyways, because I’m not able to include that I will give you something else as, well, a consolation prize I suppose.
First, we have a picture of my lovely little Bonsai.
As you can see, she’s taken to the new soil very well. The other one hasn’t really changed at all but I don’t really mind because this one here is my favorite.
You know, if the fact that I actually gave this one a pot wasn’t enough indication.
The second thing I’m going to share with you all is something you’ll probably appreciate much more- the most vague, uninformative spoilers I can come up with.
Chapter 80 ends with Mai’s return but she still hasn’t settled things with Naruto at all.
And we’ll keep that our little secret, yeah? A reward for those of you who actually read these. See? There is a reason to keep up to date with Eyazahrid.
Now if only Eyazahrid could get his shit together and provide them more regularly.
Only a few more things to mention here.
First, thanks goes to the lovely nameless person who pointed out that one of my April updates had been titled as a March update.
Think I’ve fixed that- which means I couldn’t find it when I went to go check Twitter- and I’ll try to be a bit more vigilant in the future.
Thank you very much for bringing that to my attention.
The next thing I want to mention is that I did indulge Menoly on Thursday and Friday by spending a few hours playing some of the games I’ve been meaning to get to.
Because I was already not writing, I figured giving you the option to watch me procrastinate was only fair. I believe a few of you stopped by- including SaintAngel22 whom I spent both streams chatting with- but most of you were scared- or bored- away pretty quickly.
I suppose that’s fair, I’m a much better writer than speaker and I’m pants at live entertainment.
If you missed it and want to check out either stream they should be available at Twitch.tv/Eyazahrid. Not sure how long they’ll be there- I should probably check- but I’ll try to have them posted permanently somewhere.
You know, eventually.
I believe that about does it for this update so we’ll bring it to a close.
Until I next have your attention,
