I've just put chapter 2 in the pipeline. It might take a few hours to show up tho. It's roughly 6,100 words long, and includes the reintroduction of one of my favorite characters.
I couldn't manage to squeeze in any hot times this chapter. I was meaning to, but decided to do it at the start of 3 instead of cramming chapter 2 with more stuff lol.
mm, I've also added two more tags to the story. Bisexual and Were.
Were because of plot. That's it.
Bisexual because it's an important part of our MC's past. I really enjoy reading BL type love stories, because they always make me cry lol. The romance is often more moving than traditional boy meets girl. I'm not a huge fan of the stuff after, but I can stomach it as long as it's light. That said, this is my story, so I'll be including the stuff I can stomach and the stuff I enjoy.
I.E. someone introduced may become a love lead, but that doesn't mean I'm going to describe sex scenes with them.
This also took me 2 days to write. I think I spent maybe 15 hours writing, which is actually just the worst writing speed of all time. Then came the editing, and I'm pretty bad at that. I feel like it's good at the moment, but if parts are truly unbearable, send me a PM and I'll do my best to fix. I try to mix sentence structures and descriptive terms to give variance, but I can't tell if it goes too far sometimes.
That's my main problem with writing: you have to take a few days to cool off so you can come back with a clear head and edit. If you write and edit too close together, bad things start looking okay, and okay things start looking great. The fatigue gets to you.
I don't want to leave everybody hanging after a single chapter, so please forgive the mistakes. Let me know if you're getting a sense of Cath's character! I'm trying to give him a unique look and response to living lol. I feel like the dynamic with System can lead to interesting interactions.
Looks like nobody is surprised lol. I couldn't stay away from writing, damn me. I just fixed a text formatting issue (i was trying to double space) so it should read a little better now.
My apologies for the absence. I was at a point where I had to do something, physical or not; so I chose not and simply deleted everything. Looking back I regret it greatly... but I'm not hurt so we'll call it even lol.
Anyways, the new "book" isn't going to take itself very seriously. That's not to say characters won't move you, or you can't take the plot seriously. Rather, I'm making it a point to poke fun at trends and tropes reincarnation/game stories often use. It's kind of a dark parody if you could feel that from the first chapter.
The schedule is four chapters a month. I'm looking for alternative ways to tie this to myself so I don't delete everything again. I'm working on an alternative, "higher brow" high-fantasy-type deal as well, only, it doesn't fit the theme of this site lol. The first chapter is 9,000 words (to give you an idea) hahahaha.
Thanks for tuning in! Again, I'm sorry for vanishing without a trace. I keep coming back because I enjoy writing too much.
