Best of days to you and hope you enjoy the new ending,
It’s with mixed feelings that I unveil my plans for Sacrifice, released last year to good, though sparse reviews. After much musing on the story, I realized I wasn’t happy with the end. I’ve revisited it again and again, but I could never quite get it. Either it would come off as depressing or too juvenile depending on what form of the ending I used, but I now realize I wasn’t using every narrative card in my hand. Now I’m quite certain I have the winning formula.
For the meantime I’ve pulled Sacrifice from all vendors. Sit tight while I prepare the new version; it should be out very soon.
And don’t worry, I’ll tuck the old version away in a very special place to keep it safe from the rain. If you really want to read it, just email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
All the best,
Good day, reader.
Today I have the next segment of Walking the Scar, both here in this post and also linked on the StoryShift app if you’d like to vote on what happens next.
But before you rush off, I’d like to share with you some music.
Below you’ll find Gustav Holst’s The Planets. Please enjoy:
It’s one of my very favorite pieces, I hope you liked it.
Now then, onto the “chapter” of Walking the Scar.

All the best to you,
Good day, reader. ❤
Due to the Storyshift app and newgrounds.com platform losing significant traction over the past year, the publisher’s given me the okay to publish it not only on Story Shift but also publish it on my personal spaces.
What it means?
Walking the Scar episodes will be jointly posted on this very site and also the Story Shift app. Regrettably, all voting must be done on Story Shift, but I’ll be sure to include links to do so.
So look forward to Walking the Scar‘s gritty, dialogue heavy, military action coming… well, probably as my next post here.
All the best to you and your kindred,
I hope you’ve been well these past few days- often I wonder what people who read my work do day by day, where they go, where they’re from, it’s a weird connection I feel.
Stephen King talked about it in his memoir/how-to On Writing, mentioning that writing to someone, and knowing they’ve read it, is in effect telekinesis, that for a fleeting moment, our thoughts are the same as the step along the endless narrative of words in a work of literature. At least that’s how I interpreted it- maybe Stephen would disagree.
Anyway, I’d like to update you with the usual mish mash, though I don’t have all that much to offer you at the moment. (Not really true, I have mountains upon mountains of unfinished manuscripts- I could probably just copy and paste one block of a manuscript into another, change up the names, and do that to make a coherent work by this point.)
Notes on Progress:
-Nocturna League #5 Oh boy, this is coming along swimmingly, at roughly 43,000 words, I’m stretching into the parts of the book where the narrative falls together nicely- I have high hopes for this one quality-wise, but I’ll let you be the judge of that. Regardless, expect more sample chapters soon.
-I made some small updates to the subscribers only fiction box. You can enjoy the benefits of my secret scribings now by signing up. If you’re already signed up, nice job- you’re cool.
-Walking the Scar has a new chapter coming out soon – look forward to that.
-Other projects are boiling under the floorboards secretly as well, so shh!
As always I wish you the best. If you’re in the northern hemisphere, bundle up please, and those of you in the southern, just jump in the pool and cool off for me, won’t you?
All the best,
