Writing has something like a gestation period. You know what you want to do, you have plans for what is going to come next, but you have to get from where you ARE to where you WANT to be. I call that the “Point A to B Conundrum.” A lot of writers cut those corners, and it’s obvious when they do. They write some quick blurb of “With that, we tied up some lose ends at Point A, and then proceeded to Point B, where some other stuff started happening and actual descriptions start picking up again!” I hate those. If you can’t write something interesting, then cut it out. If you can’t cut it out, find a way to make it interesting.
I’m at the point where I have to go from A to B. And I figured out a way to do that. But I ran out of time and energy. Mostly energy. A couple days ago I worked the front register AND drive through of a pharmacy at the same time for six hours. I was a human ping pong ball, bouncing from one register to the next, trying to keep lines moving. My body will adapt in time, but at this point, I’m too weary to finish the next chapter by the time the weekend is over.
With this, I hope the Extra Chapter, the Election Day Special, can be used to sate your appetites for the adventures in my fictional (?) universe. And with that, please look forward to Extra Chapters that I may (or may not) release in the future. Such as “Devil Mock to the Other World Parody,” and “Welcome to Maoujanai High School,” as well as backstory, as explained by Chaz. And yes, I am a psychopath to come up with that kind of crap. Just roll with it, you’ll be happier that way.
Have a good weekend, and please look forward to next weekend. I’ll probably have tangible results for you by that time.
