A COMMON MISTAKE

you'd think a writer would blog more

What I’m Working On

I think I average about 5 visitors a week to the website. Indicative as that is of the massive interest in my continued presence on planet Earth, I’ll now provide an update on the things I’ve been working and preemptively answer heretofore unasked questions regarding the state of my long-form prose output to sate the slavering curiosity of the restless masses.

The Fallout 4 Mod

It hasn’t been mentioned here, but it’s been the subject of a few abject streaming failures and mixed messages from my Discord, but I’m working on a Fallout 4 mod. I’m working on it as a sort of a portfolio piece for the inevitable return to the working world. My hope is that if I put enough work into it, I can use it to get a job writing for games (combined with all my other output). We’ll see how it goes, but so far writing is coming along well, scripting’s in a good place. It has a few characters in it. Probably going to be three NPCs. The companion’s the main focus and I’m hoping I can tell her story well without being overbearing.

Anyway, her name’s Liu Bai. I’ll probably post here when she’s released.

The Game

No title yet. It’s a Stardew Valley/Animal Crossing sort of game. 2D, making it in Unity. You curate a museum in a small mountain town. Tons of work left to do on it. Not much else to say. It’ll have a load of characters and things to do. It’s on the back burner a bit since I am making enough money on streaming at the moment to pay bills. I’ll have more to say about it later.

The Books

HA! Good one. No single book I’ve published has, at this point, managed to pay off the price of the cover art for the books. To say nothing of living expenses of any amount or even the cost of purchasing copies for sale at conventions (let alone the conventions themselves except for a single case or two).

My current, semi-disingenuous statement on the matter is that I’ll write the next book in any given series when I sell enough copies on Amazon to have paid off any of the covers. So look for Husks book 3 in, I dunno, maybe 2020? But by then, I’ll be out of saved up cash and back to working a full time job if nothing I’m during currently works out. So, hey! Enjoy my other stuff. The mod will be free, so that’s good, right?

Okay! Back to work. You can check the streams out at: https://twitch.tv/digiwombat
