Writing Update: April 2012 W1 Edition

A new Academy character has been revealed on the Academy Series page!

April is finally here and I am incredibly happy with my progress this year. The Academy: First Volume is now slightly longer than Library: Book One. I’ve written more in the first 3 months of 2012 than I did in the entirety of 2011!

The Academy: First Volume is now 60% complete. Over the next few weeks I’ll continue to edit the stories and make sure all of the information is presented properly. While there are things that can be discovered in The Academy, I want the stories to be easy to read for those who go from start to finish. If you’d like to analyze The Academy and speculate about it that should also be very possible.

My main goal for The Academy is to create a work that can be enjoyed in many ways. This is the reason for the variety in the stories as well as the existence of an overarching narrative. This is the reason for the way certain elements are structured. This is the reason for the inclusion of Character and World Tips.

When I look at everything that has been done so far, I believe that I am accomplishing my goal and I am very happy. I don’t think everyone can enjoy The Academy but those who can will have a variety of options for how they choose to do so. Even better than that is that while I work on my first commercial release (to be announced at a later date), The Academy Series will remain free!

Personally, I believe everyone who enjoys my content should have some form of access to it. I am very proud of the work I have put into The Academy and I want it to be enjoyed by many people. Of course I have the same goal for my commercial works as well. There’s a lot that can be debated about whether or not a work should be free, but it is my desire to have at least one free series so I am happy to offer that with The Academy.
