News updates are the short news blurbs posted on the front page. If you're looking for writings sorted by story, I'd suggest the story archves or Scorpion's Hoard.

- Iridescent Dreams: Chapter 7-7
Tuesday, August 25, 2009
Today's revelation has been coming for six and a half years. It feels anticlimactic to me, but I don't know. I've known all along. A few more days of flashbacks and then some present-day repercussions, and we'll be done with chapter 7. I plan to start chapter 8 and head back underground on Labor Day. Just bear with me as we explore this particular tangent, and we'll get back to the action soon enough.

And I've survived my first week back at the keyboard. It's kind of surprising how quickly the words came back. After sitting idle for years, I expected there to be an acclimatization period. But Iridescent Dreams is a good story to get back in the habit with; I can do 500 words a day, no problem. The trick will be breaking back into Circle of Scorpion.

Two pages done for today, getting me back on track for every Friday to be a tidy multiple of five landmark. This also confirms for me that I can fairly easily write two pages a day in the time I have, which allows me to start getting a buffer between what's being published any given day and what I'm actually writing. Which is nice. You'll want to use the update links above to read the story in sequence, since the main link in the left bar will take you to page 3, not page 2.
Even though the story is veering somewhat from my notes (again, my five-year-old notes), I'm hoping part III will be the end of this particular story. There's two more characters to introduce and a couple plot lines to wrap up. Of course, Aerin exploded entirely unplanned into yesterday's update, so who knows. After that, this broad introduction to the world will be over, and I can start following individuals as they pursue their own stories.

Surprise! I updated Iridescent Dreams for the first time in years. I've found myself trapped for three hours a day with nothing at all to do, so I've decided to put the time to good use. It shouldn't be much of an issue to get out a page of writing a day, and it'll definitely be good for me. Hopefully the rally will last long enough to finish off this particular story line at least. I'm going to push to get through two pages some day this week, just so I can start off with five this week. I like fives.
Chapter seven starts today, even though I hadn't planned, so many years ago, for the chapter to break here. Amazing how things can change in, what, five years? Six? It took me a bit longer than I expected to remember how to update all the little things that need changed, but I'm fairly certain everything is updated and linking like it's supposed to.
