More Technical Difficulties

Sorry about there still being no podcast. I didn't realise this until I tried to record something but the microphone on my computer isn't very good. I'm going to need to buy a new headset. It's also going to have to be a USB one because I don't think this new computer has a microphone jack. I'll check the tech specs and see.

At least I do have something to talk about. My pony fanfiction writing days are over. For now. A seven month project spanning not one, not two, not even three, but FOUR stories has come to an end. Thankfully only the second one was 180k words. The third was about 20k and the first and fourth were about 5k or so.

It feels really strange that something that has been part of my life for the last seven months is done. It's something that has been one of the main focuses of my life actually. I updated it with about 2k word updates every two days. I never missed an update either except for when I went on holiday and that was because I had no internet. I even managed to post one update that week. I'm pretty awesome.

I'm going to take the rest of the week away from writing. I might take next week off too because I'm just that mentally drained, but I do plan on going back to Immortal Space now. My plan for it is to start again from the beginning. I don't think I'll be rewriting it, or changing much at all, but some things might change. In effect I'll be writing the second draft. I've never written a second draft before. I would even post updates to things as soon as I'd written them. Barely ever had a complaint about the quality of writing either. I don't think I ever had one about the quality of writing.

I also really need to get my Christmas shopping done.

  1. I imagine the sense of accomplishment at the end of a seven-month project must really be something. You definitely deserve a few days away from writing :)

  2. Wrapping up a project always feels weird, but it's also fun to start thinking "What's next?" Cool to hear Immortal Space is back on your plate, and yes, definitely take a few days off, first! It's good to give the ol' brain a rest before you dive back in to another huge project.
