I know I said on Friday that I planned to start posting Immortal Space again on my other blog as early as tomorrow but now that I've thought about it, I'm not so sure I can. Allow me to elaborate. I think I can post Immortal Space again; fact is I could do it very easily, I'm just not sure how much of it I could post you see.
I could post the rewritten chapters but I don't think I could get any farther into it than I already got to. When we left Immortal Space it was right before the final arc of the story. Trent and Jeff were off on an adventure to liberate Lena's planet and I fully intended for that to be it. I don't want to give away too much of course but if that story has an ultimate main villain, then it's the guy who's running things there.
I would feel like too much of a douche if I posted up until that point and then stopped again, yet at the same time I can't publish the whole thing online. I'm free to publish excerpts of something for promotional purposes as per my publishing agreement but I don't think that covers the entire work. Even if I wasn't on that publishing deal I would question the logic of posting something for free online and then trying to charge people for it. It's why when webcomics and other such things release stuff you can find online on their site, they also throw in exclusive things.
I should see the rewritten version as that exclusive thing. Things progress a little differently in that version and, most of all, it'll have a definitive end. So, really, I'm not so sure I can post Immortal Space again. Which would really be quite a big shame in my opinion because I did make several reassurances that I was going to bring it back, and even set a date this time.
I don't even know really. As I said, it seems like it would be a jerk move to only post some of it, and I don't think I could post all of it. I feel bad not posting any of it, but it seems like an adequate solution. The unedited and original version is still on this site, and I still have a tab leading to them.
I'm also open to suggestions and ideas. If you people are cool with me only posting some of it, then I'll be happy to do that. I'm most likely worrying about something I have no reason to be worrying about. I probably have plenty of actual concerns I need to be worried about too.
