September is here and autumn is right around the corner. It’ll be time to plant those root vegetables for the coming winter and take a breather from the summer heat (or at least that’s what’s SUPPOSED to happen).


Anyway, you may notice the “ABOUT” tab at the top has been replaced with a “GAIA” tab with eight drop-down sections: The Magi, Rosso Virus, Technology, Agriculture (and Food), Geography (and Regions), Politics, History, and Religion. That’s right, I’ve been putting it a fair amount of work on this section since the last time, but the pages are mostly empty right now.¬†Currently, I’m working on a full history of Gaia, which, as you can imagine, takes a lot of time. I thought this would be the most important section to iron out first, as once I have the history set in stone, everything else will fall into place naturally. I’m not sure how long this will take to put together, so it’s entirely possible very little progress is made if I decide to focus more on writing volume two than decide what year certain political arrangements were made over a thousand years ago.


We won’t be speaking badly of my placeholder, uh… “art” that I made for each of the eight sections. Please admire them and tell me they look nice. I’ll hire an official artist to replace them sooner or later. I’m not in a major rush at this exact moment.


I’m also going to finally turn my focus to the revisions of the side stories I already have written, just to have them ready to be posted when the story becomes available for purchase. Unfortunately, this is just another thing that will divide my time, but I’d much rather have it done and ready to go when I need it.


I think that’s it for this update. It looks like I have several things to do, but that’s fine. If I get stuck on any particular area while writing volume two, I can switch over and work on something else until I figure out what I want to do. For a writer, I guess having too much to do is a good thing.
