Aaaaaaaand I forgot the update again. We were getting better but I suppose it’s not surprising it didn’t last long.

The good news is that there shouldn’t be too much to cover which is fortunate considering I need to be leaving for work here soon. So, what do we need to cover?

First matter, I guess, will be the Discord. On January First, 2020 the Eyazahrid Community Discord will be available to the public through links provided on thsi site, my Twitter at Eyazahrid, and on chapter 107.

I’d go into more detail but it was covered in the AN of chapter 106 and if you skipped that there’s a big chance you’re not reading this either.

I finally finished that Naruto x Mito lemon and it’s available for Patrons on Patreon.com. Just like the Discord, it will be available to the public on the First of January.

Other than tat, we’re still making pretty solid progress on chapters. Chapter 108 is technically at like 15000 words right now because I’ve jsut been writing scenes as they come to me. I figure that after I hit 20000 I’ll figure out what scenes will stay in 108 and what will become 109. The order is going to be the most challanging as I figure out my own damn timeline but I’ll figure something out.

I have a couple other things I’m trying to work on but considering how little progress I’ve actually managed to make I won’t even bother mentioning them here. Wouldn’t want to get anyone’s hopes up if I end up scrapping the ideas.

But I think that about covers it for this update.

Happy Holdidays and until I next have attention,

Another on-time update? it must be the end of the fucking world. What’s more, I actually have something I need to talk about this time.

I’ll give you a moment to recover from your heads exploding.

We’ll start with progress- it’s, well, its’ not been anythign exceptional but I did finish 108 and 107-A goes live next week so I have a bit of a lead. Notas much as I’d like, but it’s not too bad.

Of course I don’t think the scens I finished will necessarily be the ones for 108, so I may have simply done half of 108 and a quarter of 109. We’ll have to see how everythign goes.

Beyond that, well, I think we only need to cover the item I planned to.

On January First, Two-Thousand and Twenty [2020.01.01] the Eyazahrid Community Discord will be open to the public. Not completely, mind you, as some of the existing channels will be restricted.

Channels such as the spoilers for the early access- the reason for which should be obvious- or our many, many NSFW channels. Discord asks users if they’re 18+ but having them have to go through both Patreon and Discord is just an extra layer of security.

It’s also a good incentive to pay a dollar.

Kind of like all those $1 all-access ads I keep getting, but legitimate and without all the viruses.

Probably.

But even without that you’ll have access to the most used channels in the server- well, the NSFW are pretty damn popular- which means a community of fellow fans and really, really easy access to yours truly.

Really, I spend too much time conversing in the Discord instead of actually gettign work done.

Will having more active members make that worse? Probably. Do I care? Not really, I’ll just have to buckle down and get more work done.

Preparations have already been made for this transition including three Moderators and a posting of the Rules for easy reference. Hopefully it will be enough as we get started.

Well, that’s about all I had- oh, nope, wait.

I’ve “finished” the Mito x Naruto lemon I was working on. I still need to go through and edit it for spelling and the like but if everything goes well I might have it ready tomorrow. I haven’t decided how it will be posted, but I’m thinking as a timed release on my Patreon page. Probably set it to be available publicly on January 1st as a sort of celebration, so look forward to that.

Probably not the best lemon, but it is better than my last attempt.

And with that covered we’re done.

Until I next have your attention,

An update on time for once- it must be a damned miracle, huh?

As amazing as that fact is, I really don’t have much to say as we get into this week’s update. I said that last week too- late- if I recall, but unless I end up coming up with another organizational system I’m probably not going to adhere to the chances of this being very long are quite slim.

And on that note, let’s talk about the amazing progress my new schedule has propagated.

Nothing more than I was already doing, really. Earlier I was finishing up the first half of chapter 108 and reached the 5000 for the cutoff. The scene isn’t completely done but that’s as far as I got.

For context, I was at 4600 and change this morning. I managed a whopping 400 words before calling it quits and wasting my time on games despite having dedicated an entire day for that.

No one to blame for that but myself and I am less than pleased with the bastard. I’m somewhat tempted to simply get rid of all my games and disconnect from the internet when I sit down to write just so I won’t be distracted but I can;t see how I’d go through with that when I can;t even stick to a schedule for writing time.

I know that part of it is that I’m too damn comfortable at my desk and that if I sat down in the lobby of a restaurant I’d probably get more done. I don’t really want to do that, but will be saving it for a plan E or so.

The first thing to try would be, naturally, making my work space less comfortable. I guess that starts by cleaning it up. Honestly, that would probably help quite a bit and, as I write on a wobbly little sidetable I have set up next to my gaming rig- I should probably either get a lower desk or a higher chair.

Writing is much easier when I don’t have to reach up to hit the keyboard, probably because it feels better.

Or I could, you know, find a way to make this table less wobbly and just keep using it. It could work, if I was in any way mechanically inclined. It was not designed to be used in this manner, as my drink is making quite clear to me.

Hmm, actually, I moved my ‘work’ desk outside my room because in the summer my room is a fucking oven and I figured the opportunity to cool down would help me get more done. Now that it’s cold again, maybe I’d be better off moving the gaming rig out there and setting up this desk for my work.

I’d need to clean both rooms and both desks, but this might help increase productivity.

Maybe.

I’m grasping at straws here, honestly. My will and self control are just about nonexistent, so I’m looking for any boost that could help me get more done in the small amount of time I can actually bring myself to do what I’m supposed to.

The worst part is that, since starting my Patreon, writing is part of my job. No one really likes to be working even a single job, let alone two, but it’s far from a difficult job- I’ve been doing it as a hobby for years- but my pride does sting knowing I’m falling dramatically short of what I know I should be able to do.

If this is how I manage it as a part time job, maybe it’s a good thing it’s unlikely it will ever become full time. That would probably just be a disaster.

I’ll probably spend what’s left of my evening trying to get things rearanged, then, because after doinfg thsi writing I’m probably not going t oget any more doen tonight.

It does make me wonder why I keep writing these, really, becasue I know there’s only a handful of you out there who care to read them. That time could definately be put t obetter time writing and, now that I think about it, the money I spend on thsi site could probably be put to better use too.

I know the renewal for the site is coming up soon and I’m trying to decide if I’m going t okeep the site at all. If I do, though, I’ll probably jump down to one of the lower tiers simply because no one’s really going to know and it will cost me a lot less.

All these updates really are these days is a chance to vent and I can either do that in a regular text editor and save it to my computer or get my shit together and stay on top of everything I need to be doing.

So we may or may not continue these updates and I may or may not continue with Eyazahrid.net into 2020. The only real purpose it serves is hosting the Commentaries but, like my updates, hardly anyone cares for those either.

I’m sure I can find an alternative. Like, you know, responding to reviews directly. Gods, when was the last time I did that?

I’ve got some time to figure it out- a month or two- and I’ll at least have two- possibly three- updates as we finish of the year.

I guess we’ll just have to see how everything plays out.

That should about cover it for this update- hey, look at that, it ended up way bigger than I had expected- so I suppose it’s time to wrap everything up.

Oh, yeah, Sealkeeper has just had it’s anniversary recently. It’s now four years old and, honestly, I have no idea how close we are to a finish. There’s a good chance we’ll hit five years before we’re finished.

Let’s hope it’s a good one.
