I’ve received a few requests for an *Update* on what’s going on and chapters.
I appreciate that there are fans who read my work who are moved enough to bother inquiring about more chapters (whether polite or not).
As most of the readers know, I’ve had a change recently that has derailed me quite a bit in terms of my personal time and ability to write as often as before. That not only hasn’t changed but a few other factors combined to drastically slow down my writing;
- Actively looking for a different job as we speak
- Hit a long coming road block. Not with the story per-se but rather with something I knew I would have to eventually address in the story that I had put off until it was relevant and now that we’ve hit the Lumea-Zone it *is* relevant.
- Personal commitments
After all, while I enjoy writing this story, it is after all something I do not get paid for in any way.
I actually had a break through on Thurs regarding that roadblock I just previously mentioned. It was something that was an issue (or was going to be) for the past month and it was a pretty big deal to me in terms of organizing the future of the story, unfortunately the time I have to write is now far more limited. This “breakthrough” will make writing a lot easier for me, but I still need the time to do it.
Where-as before I posted around 4 chapters a week, now I will struggle to post 1-2 chapters a week for a while.
On different news, I began writing my story “Dark Star of Fate” which I’d planned on doing ages ago but had never did. I’ve written the first few chapters and because I’m writing it at a slower pace I am correcting problems as I go along. I don’t think it’s too crazy for me to say that I believe that once I finish it’ll be of much higher quality than God’s Trials. Although perhaps that’s biased. I’m planning on continuing to write this story while writing GT which will again be another factor towards slowing down the num of GT chapters released weekly. My plan is to finish the first arc or novel of DSoF before beginning to release the chapters (Which will drastically help regarding consistency).
I have a feeling that the fans that stick with me and GT in the long-term will eventually ask and therefore I will pre-emptively answer. DSoF and GT will be in a shared universe. The stories will have some coinciding factors while I won’t bother saying “It’s a prequel, sequel, happening at the same time else where” etc
I’m certain it’ll be a nice treat for those of you enjoying GT.
As for GT chapters, I’ve got most of one already finished so I will release a chapter in a bit, I was going to try and write another and release that tomorrow (spread them out) but I have a long waited for time-off trip starting tomorrow where I won’t be doing anything within my regular routine. Therefore, I will try and finish both chapters. If I do, I’ll release both simultaneously, if I only release one then that’ll be all for the next few days.
Due to the “breakthrough” I had in establishing something essential to the development of the story in GT, I managed to finish planning out the rest of the Lumea arc as well. I’ve also finished (as you should have guessed) introducing a lot of the characters that will be of relevance (and some without) for a while. Meaning that a good chunk of what comes next will no longer detract from Daichi’s story and where he will go from here.
Thank you for the update. I hope things go well for you.
