It’s been a long time since I could last make any significant update here. I posted those old story drafts and other documents, but that was really nothing more than digging through old stuff and showcasing them for your amusement.
Today, that changes.
For I have finished a story.
It’s not Symphony. But what it is has in about a month (I started writing it October 16th) become larger than what Symphony has become in all the years I have had it as a work in progress.
So it’s kind of a big deal for me.
It’s the first Next Era story I complete since 2007.
It’s the first Next Era story I write where 666 is not an involved character.
But most of all, it’s a sixteen thousand word testament to that my writer’s block is finally over.
I am working on a much, much shorter companion piece to it, but I’d want you to read that one later anyway, so it will be posted when it gets done.
A fun fact to note is that this story evolved from a particular scene that I thought of, and had boiling in my head for a while. In essence, it was the core of the story. In the completed story, that part amounted to only three thousand words.
And so, to this end, I present to you the first new Next Era story in two years: Archives.
