Weekly update?

Trying to decide if weekly updates would be a good or bad thing. I figure if I generate a few e-mails from interested/happy readers its a good thing as I enjoy conversing with eager readers and it does keep the creative process running.

That said, I'm not sure how much of a boost I need. I said at the start of November my one tale that I'm concentrating on was at 224K words, well it's grown to 240K and that's even with me taking a day to throw down 2000 words into a Swarm Cycle story. I seem to be maintaining a 3K word a day pace. now I just have to keep that up for the rest of my life.

I have been reviewing some old notes about stories and also looking at some story outlines. I can't promise that I'll start posting another story soon, but I have decided to try to concentrate on a couple of Swarm Cycle Stories in my spare time and give them 1-2 days a week. If all goes well, I'll have something in mid/late December. The problem is that the next Swarm story is so closely tied to another story in work that I'll probably end up publishing both at the same time. (lots of character crossover.)

But that's it for now.

And do let me know if you like hearing from me weekly. or is that weakly since there is no story here. :P
