I have been and currently still am suffering from an extended case of Writer’s Block, which is why there have been no updates to “Regrowth” for quite some time. I hate it.
The good news is that in January, I’ve got a bunch of vacation days strung up in a row, and I intend to use them to get the story going again.
Thank you for visiting, and for your patience.
New chapter coming soon…
I just wanted to give a quick update on my writing. I have not abandoned my story. I’ve just been focused on other matters.
In addition to being a serialized fiction author, I am also an aspirant musician. I am in the process of building a digital audio production setup, which will serve my initial needs as I get started with that aspect of my creativity for this web site as a whole. I’ve got a clear plan in mind, but it requires time to research the different elements I need. This week, I will be ordering components for the computer I need to build. Once that is done, I will be able to begin producing my music. On my off days from work and at least one hour per work day, I will be able to focus equally on my stories and on my music, following a schedule accordingly. We’re looking at late February or early March.
“Regrowth: The Chronicles of John Shaw – Volume II” continues with Chapter 4, entitled “A Call from Beyond.”
Sorry I haven’t delivered this chapter sooner. It’s a bit shorter than usual for this volume. It is my intention to deliver nothing less than 2500 words per chapter. That’s short in and of itself, but it’s a minimum standard I chose to adopt. This time, however, the event this chapter is meant to cover did not take that much to convey, and I sat there trying to figure out what I could tack on that would fit, and I ultimately couldn’t justify adding anything just to fill up space. So yes. this one is short. I have no doubt that there will be much longer chapters in the future to make up for it.
Thank you for visiting, and be blessed…
This week, I am in the process of finalizing chapter 3 of REGROWTH – The Chronicles of John Shaw – Volume II, which will be called “Mountain of Despair.” Look for it soon.
It’s been a long time coming… Too long, in fact. I do apologize for the delay. But as I said, I am determined to get back on track with my writing. I thank you for your patience.
Regrowth, the second volume of The Chronicles of John Shaw, will continue on April 8th with its third chapter, entitled “Mountain of Despair.” It was originally scheduled for release today, but upon review, I was not satisfied with the story flow, so part of it needs to be rewritten. I look forward to sharing it.
I commissioned the very talneted artist, Melissa Love, to produce the virtual cover art for Rebirth: The Chronicles of John Shaw – Volume I.
The original plan was to launch this web site yesterday, but due to some back-end elements that still needed to be set up, and my work schedule as it was, a delay could not be avoided. But it is here now, with the first two scenes posted. What is a “scene,” you may ask? It is a segment of a chapter in my story. Chapters will be released every Friday, but I don’t make you wait an entire week to find out what happens next. If you wish to follow the story on a daily basis, then Monday through Friday, you will find a new scene published. That’s five scenes per week. On friday, those five scenes will be compiled into a chapter. So you have two ways to follow the story: daily or weekly. At the beginning of the year, a new volume of the story will begin.
Check out the Table of Contents or jump right into Scene 1 – “A Storm of Emotion.” After that, continue on to Scene 2 – “breakfast.”
