Looking Forwards

Hello all! This is the previously mentioned blog post, discussing things to come. Firstly, I just want to thank everyone for reading and sticking with me. 49 is a lot of posts, and 36,000 is a lot of words.

In regards to Earth 2, I’ve decided I will structure the plot in ‘seasons’, like a TV show. Season 1 will have its finale on part 50, and I’m planning on taking a short break between. This break will beĀ 1 month, and during it, I will still be uploading every Friday at noon. I will upload some one-offs, an epilogue, and maybe some other miscellaneous things. I plan to use the break to plan and build a backlog of posts for season 2.

Season 2 will be a continuation of the current story, much like you would expect from a TV show. It will have about 50 parts, but the parts will be longer.

Now, big announcement time. Not really, but it was fun to say. Little announcement: I am working on a full length novel! This will take place in a completely different world to Earth 2, with completely different characters. I’ll have more details when I’m a bit closer to being finished. If you’re curious, this will not affect the serial.

With regards to Season 1’s posts, I am hoping to conglomerate it into a novelette. I am as of yet unsure if I will be able to do that, but I’ll look into it. Regardless, as of right now, I don’t intend to do much editing on Season 1, so they’ll likely stay how they are. Let it serve as a barometer of my improvement as a writer.

I intend to write another summary for parts 26-50, once they’re completed, like how I did for parts 1-25. I also plan to go through, and mark some of my posts that stand particularly well on their own, so as to provide a better taste of my writing style, without the requirement of reading 50 parts.

Now, with all of that being said, thank you so much for all of your support. This blog has really grown, and I’m super proud of it. I really can’t thank you enough for reading.

Have a good weekend, and remember, the finale is next Friday, January 18th.

Month of Writing

Hello, all! This month, I am taking part in a challenge to write 10000 words in May. I plan to write a fair bit of backlog for Earth 2, but I will also likely write some other things. Earth 2 will continue to come out on Fridays, but I may post a few other things on no particular schedule. If you see something in particular that you like, let me know in the comments or the contact me page, I may do more of it.

Another fun thing about may, is that it’s my birth month! I don’t want to disclose a specific birthday, but it happens this month. Also happening in May is mothers day! No real relevance to this blog, just thought some of you could use the reminder. May 13th.

If you’d like more info about the writing challenge follow the link at the bottom of this post. Have a wonderful May, I appreciate your reading!

Announcement

Hello readers! Today, I am planning on upgrading my WordPress plan, which would grant me a new URL. There will be a post coming later today, but as with anything, there is a chance that this could break everything, so if the site is out of commision that will be why.

 

Have a lovely day, Earth 2: Part 11 coming later today. (With the assumption that I don’t break the site and ruin everything.)

 

EDIT: Alright, the switch is done, the URL should just read cjaworks.com. May be somewhat finicky for the first few days, but it looks like everything is fine, and old links should redirect to the new URL.

I also now have a twitter, so you can follow that if you play the social media game, it should tweet when there’s a new post.

Regarding Part 3

Hey guys, so I’m not happy with how part 3 ended up, so I will be uploading a different part 3 when I can. I’ve had a pretty busy weekend and I’m just getting started, but I will try to hurry. For the record the original post will stay up, and there will still be a post this Friday.

Thank you so much for bearing with me, I will try not to make this too regular of a thing, but there’s enough that I want to change that I feel like this warrants it. I will also not be uploading too many posts that aren’t story, as I feel that is the point of this whole site, but I will upload necessary updates.
