I’m going to have to try keeping this one brief as I should be heading out the door any minute now for work, but I know I need to take care of this before I forget again.

I wish I could say this update was completely positive news- at least for my readers- but I know that’s really not the case.

First- No, I’m not dead. Nor do I intend to be. Until proven otherwise just consider me immortal.

Second- No I’m not leaving, taking a break, going on hiatus, or abandoning my work. Calm down.

Now that we’ve settled those two points I’ll elaborate on what is happening. As you may have seen in my Patreon post- or probably not- the Patreon has been paused for the next billing cycle which I intend to maintain going forwards. More detail can be found there, but as part of me trying to get my shit together I’m looking for a second job and the lack of time may make it more difficult to reach tyhose deadlines for early chapters.

Hell, it might make it hard to reach the deadlines of regular chapters too. Going to have to remember to do an AN in the next public chapter.

For example, tomorrow’s chapter isn’t done yet. I think I’m like halfway there but I’ve been busy trying to get my life in order and I’ve been trying to get a friend of mine back on her feet. Almost done on that front, so once she’s settled again it might be a bit easier for me to get the things I need done.

To help me focus on all the things I need to be doing I have taken leave of the Eyazahrid Community Discord and my overall internet presence will be greatly reduced. As it is, I’m honestly considering packing up my gaming rig so it can’t tempt me away from everything I need to do.

Or, at the very least, removing the external drive I keep all my games on and hiding it at the back of my closet.

The only other thing I really need to address might be more possitive than negative for my readers but I’ll leave that up to you to decide. Due to Corona-Chan my company is currently in a hiring freeze and so to fill a recently opened warehouse position they have to look internally. It’s a bit pf a paycut but the hours are slightly more reliable and the ob itself is generally a lot less stressful.

No heat, no heights, no customers, and no sales? Yes, please.

Chances of getting it are good and with it being, well, an easier job I hope that I can come home and not bee too exhausted to write. At least then we can still be making some reliable progress even if it is slower.

I’ve used fifteen of the five minutes I had, so I’m going to end this with a thank you to all of you who have supported me over the years as I’ve worked through Sealkeeper. Without you I never would have had the drive to get me past the first six months and who knows what my writing would be like- or if I’d even still be writing at all.

Thank you, I hope to see you all again soon.

Until I next have your attention,


I was supposed to post this yesterday but I completely forgot about it. Part of it was just that I’m forgetful, but I’d say a large part of it was simply because there’s been so much going on.

And because Menoly distracted me yesterday, but I give her such little attention that I can’t hold it against her.

So, where to start?

How about with all of the amazing people who have become my patrons?

That’s right, 41 fantastic patrons who have collectively pledged $126 a month to help me reach a point where I can write full time.

Or, you know, just really wanted those early chapters.

Either way is fine.

And if you noticed the math doesn’t check out – don’t you lie to me, you weren’t counting- it’s because Patreon takes 5% plus payment fees. Think it comes out to like 8% or something all around.

But the boring aspects of it aside, 41 of you donated.

Holy shit!

I can’t thank you all enough for your show of support and while we’re still a long ways off from our goal seeing how quickly you all chipped in to help makes me think we might really be able to pull it off.

Gods, I hope so.

But until then, I still have writing that needs to get done between work so let’s finish this up so I can get back to working on chapter 103.

And on that note- progress! I’ve mentioned this already but chapter 102 is done – and has been- and as of last night chapter 103 has reached 70% complete.

Technically I only need to get the regular 5k doen each week to keep up, but I figure that if I spend a few weeks eaking out all the tiem I can to get further ahead I won’t have to worry as much.

It will also free up time dfor some of my other projects.

In this case, I’m bumping ‘Write a book’ to the top of the project list so I can get it published and- more importantly- sold. I have a few ideas, it’s just a matter of deciding what would work best and what I can create a satisfying ending too.

Planning out plot isn’t exactly my strong suit, I usually just write as it comes to me.

Of course, if I was any good at it I could just write smut and fill Amazon with my cheap, sub-par porn. Sorry, “Erotic Novellas”. You have no idea how much I would love to be able to say that I make a living writing porn. I think that would be absolutely hilarious.

But speaking of writing, I need to get this finished so I can do some.

Because I don’t have nearly as much free time as I need all other projects will be put on hold for the foreseeable future, though I will return to them as soon as I can. This doesn’t affect most of you as none of my projects have really seen the light yet but I know there will be a few of you disappointed at the delay.


Streams will continue, I have one every Tuesday at about 6pm (UTC-7) and they last between 2-3 hours depending on if anyone’s watching, how engrossed I become, or how much I know I need to get back to writing because I’m nowhere close to my goal for the day.

It’s usually that last one, honestly.

If people like the idea I might do a “Just Chatting” stream while working on my writing, but I suppose we could all just jump into discord for that.

On second thought, having too many people talking would not be conductive to writing, nor would distracting me. Still,an option to keep in mind, I suppose.

Anything else?

Commentary this Sunday, Chapter 102-B for Patrons on Monday, stream Tuesday [FFXV], Update Wednesday, and then nothing until the following Monday when 102 goes public and 103-A is up on Patreon.

So I think that about does it. Thank you all again for your support and until I next have your attention,
