Progress!

70,000!
70,000!

I’ve just realised that this screenshot shows the original, incredibly weaboo name for Arctic Gale. Also the fact that I use Word. Still, whatever. The above shot is from the now-available Chapter 35 of AG. I saw that after I posted the photo of Weee and I last week a couple of people actually read it. That feels good. I think the total number of people that have read to the end is still countable on fingers and toes, but then again, the same was true of KS before it got released…

I’m really tempted to write the next chapter – possibly the last one, depending on how long it gets – right now. However I am really freaking tired and it’s no good to climax when tired. Last time I did that Hanako jumped in front of a subway, so let’s try and avoid that.

I’ve just come back from 2.5 weeks away, which included a lot of introspection (lots of plane rides, ya’see). That’s not always a good thing. I have realised that I’m not very good at being tired, so I need to work on that.

I have thought a lot about what I have to do when I polish up AG. I think I’ll leave a copy of the Draft here in pdf or similar, but then I’ll go through and fix the sucker up. I want to move a lot of the stuff that I thought of later, like the heating system, earlier in the piece. I might even scrap some characters or locations; the original subway hideout doesn’t really add value but it is a good location to build up Drew and Dani into the characters that they have become now…

Anyway, what else is going on? Well, some of the 4LS people are getting together to try and do something for the Fuyukomi – the winter Comiket on the 31st of December. Hir already has secured us a table and I know that Weee and Aura have already been working on something. It looks like I might not have much of a chance, but if I get AG polished up then I might print out a dozen or so copies for anyone that actually makes it to the booth.

Right, back to some Venture Brothers and then some music before my family gets home tomorrow…

Edit: One last thing: I was getting all nostalgic, so I thought I’d post this (which is still actually active somehow):
