I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe RP forums. Starting with the Algalon encounter (which I’ve never actually done) and heading towards Yogg-Saron, we’re getting closer to the end of the Ulduar story arc. The next major arc will be Icecrown. I’ve had to revise my plans for Icecrown multiple times with the addition of the Crusader’s Tournament and the new Icecrown five-man dungeons. I’m still not certain how much of that will ultimately make it into the main part of the story.
Still, we’re in the homestretch now. I should, hopefully, finish Part III in a few months. I’m praying I’ll have enough time between the end of Part III and the beginning of Cataclysm to do some serious editing on Parts II and III.
And now, back to working on The Unexiled for a bit.
I’ve just got a new schedule at work. Our company redid our contracts so I’m down to working 37 hours a week instead of 42 – 45 (on a “slow” week) or 45 – 50 (on a “omgwtf” week).
That means, more time for writing! Yay!
So, I’ve juggled my schedule around again and am now spending my lunchbreaks writing instead of doing dailies or playing Dragon Age. On an average day, that means that I add about two pages to Alayne’s Story or The Unexiled. I now work on Alayne’s Story starting on Monday and continue on until I have five full pages. After that, I stop working on Alayne’s Story for the week and go over to working on The Unexiled or on a game-design project I’m working on with a few friends. I also spend my evenings doing just one random heroic (working towards “the Patient” so I’m pugging it all the time) and then I log off WoW (if I’m not raiding that night) and work on my stories.
Hopefully this new schedule will allow me to get more added to The Unexiled and to this other project I’m on. So far, it’s working out all right. I was able to send out The Unexiled last week which means the next update will be a week from this Friday.
Anyhow, lunch is over now. Back to work.
I’ve just posted the latest update to Alayne’s Story over on the WoW-Europe RP forums. This week’s update takes our group through the Hodir and Thorim encounters in Ulduar.
I’m really hoping that my guild gets through ICC soon so I can see how it ends. I’ve already got notes written out for how to move into Cataclysm but, to be honest, I’m looking forward to a few month’s break from writing Alayne’s Story to give myself a chance to update this site and edit Parts I – III. Not to mention get to spend more time working on The Unexiled.
Anyhow, lunch is over. Back to work. At least I get off a little early on Fridays now so that means more writing time!
I’m late sending out The Unexiled because the application I was using to generate the mailing list has crapped out. I’m trying to figure out how to fix it because the old method of using Thunderbird was causing some people not to receive the mail and attachment properly. I’m going to try a few more things this week to see if I can fix it. If not, I’ll go back to my old standby of using three different programs to send it out.
