Hello, everyone. I hope the holiday season treated you well.
You may have noticed that there was no January update, and there’s a good reason for that.
Honestly — I am exhausted. I’m so exhausted that I didn’t even remember to make a post here when I announced the release of Lord of the Night Realm: Reunion on Twitter and Instagram. (It’s April, by the way. Sorry for being unceremonious.) I also haven’t been updating the progress tracker, though I assure you that despite my exhaustion, the work is still getting done.
There’s so goddamn much that’s frustrating me these days; rampant bigotry and hate, AI being used to replace people… It reached a point where distancing myself wasn’t enough to separate me from my frustration. I already knew about theses things, so I’d end up just thinking about them and how they affected the people I cared about. I was starting to get sick from it.
After Reunion is released, I’m giving myself a month-long vacation. And when I return from it, I’m approaching my works with a new mindset that will vastly improve my enthusiasm and productivity. Because ultimately, I just want to be creative and share my works with those who care to see them. Be that writing, art, music, whatever.
Anyway, this has been more of a rant than an update. So let me mention a couple of things coming soon.
First, I’ll be adding a page for artworks I’ve commissioned of Lord of the Night Realm characters, as I now have a good few and I’m sure that others would like to see them. Second, I’m adding a small directory of fellow indie authors whose works I’ve read. I’ve been blown away by the wonderful stories these authors have written and want anyone curious about my praises to find them easily enough.
That’ll be it for now. Here’s hoping I’ll be in a better mindset for March’s update.
Until next time, take care!
