One year update

I just randomly looked at my posts and tomorrow is the one-year anniversary of closing down the site.  I'm not sure why I'm posting anything here, but I figure it's a pretty good reason to give an update so why not?

I'm still not any closer to publishing Old School Evil 2. I keep trying to figure out when I can write, and I've done a little better at clearing time for creative endeavors at work.  However, editing the book has become extremely tedious and I'm not even sure why.  It was fine up to this point, but right now, I just can't do it.  Maybe I just need a change of scenery or something.

I have recently rejoined my old writing group and while I didn't submit anything for the last three or four meetings, I finally did send them something to critique.  It's the first section of my NaNo project from 2019, a spin-off standalone book in the Old School Evil universe.  I won't post anything here about it since I'm not sure I've ever even mentioned it online, but I'm getting feedback on it tomorrow, so I'm just going to say I'm excited about that.  

I have done a little writing lately though - I posted two Mega Construx-related articles on The Retro Network.  Yup, I finally posted something that wasn't holiday-related or a request from the management there!  I've got a few more lists I'm planning to write and post there and I'm hoping to get one of them done this week.  If you're interested in reading my stuff there, here's a link.

Lastly, I think I mentioned this before, but I'm planning to do a relaunch for the first Old School Evil novel.  I had originally planned to release it right before putting out book 2 just so I can ride that new book wave, but I'm wondering if I should just relaunch book 1 ASAP and not worry about matching the releases up at all.  I've finally figured out the artists I want working on it, and I think I've figured out the look well enough to try making it myself again.  I'd love to make some mock-ups and get some opinions on them here someday soon, but I have to wait until one of the artists is open to commissions again.

Anyway, that's it for me.  It's late, and I have a few minutes alone before going to bed, so maybe I'll try to write something.  Or then again, I might just watch an episode of Blood of Zeus instead.
