Well, this month turned out to be a bit more hectic than I first assumed it would be. It started off well enough with my working on the new side story, but it wasn’t progressing all that smoothly. It took me almost the entire month to get to a point where I realized it simply wasn’t hitting me the way I wanted. So, with the first half of the story nearing completion, I decided it might be a good idea to just scrap it and redo the whole thing. This, of course, raises a whole new set of issues, but I’d rather a story be as good as it can be than just “fine” or “passable”.
Other than that, I’ve been looking into some doing some very minor jobs on freelance sites to supplement my income. Though there has been an uptick in sales recently (and I’d love for it to stay on this upward trend), the truth is that it simply isn’t enough quite yet, and my funds are starting to run low. I don’t need a ton of extra money, just enough to offset my monthly bills, so it won’t really interfere with my writing too much, but finding a stable position with limited hours in the first place can be difficult.
On a completely unrelated note that has absolutely nothing to do with the previous paragraph, remember to support my Patreon account if you are so inclined. It would also be appreciated.
There hasn’t been much more going on than that. Like I said, it’s been hectic, and now I’m shifting between looking for a little bit or work, brainstorming how to rewrite the side story from scratch and still be able to get it to where I need it to be, and finally starting on volume 3. It’s going to a long month, but hopefully a fun one, too!
