Immortal Space Update Un

I've decided to dedicate the first post of each month to Immortal Space updates. It gives me an easy blog post to make, keeps you guys aware of how much progress I've made, and also keeps me in check. If I don't write much, come here and declare that, I'll feel guilty as shit at the disappointment you guys will obviously feel.
It also means you GET HYPE!
So where am I in Immortal Space so far? I suppose I should give you a quick run down first. Right now I have plans for 48 chapters. When I'm done I'll wait a week and go through it once more, further combining chapters. I'd combine them as I go through now but then I'd have trouble tracking my progress. So then, just what is that progress? That's the whole point of this post after all.
Unfortunately my cats weren't big fans of their posts. 
As of the time of writing (Sunday night) I have written a grand total of 30260 words across nine chapters. So in terms of progress I am just over (or under) a fifth of the way through. 48/6 is 5.3. At my current pace it will take about four more months if I've done my maths right. Maybe five. But I am hoping to pick up the pace a little moving forward and have it take about four months. We're looking at a summer release here folks. I tend to write one 2000ish word chapter every writing session. Though of course those last few chapters are going to be written from scratch and will probably take longer. They'll also probably be longer and how long chapters are going to be in the final release.

In other words, it's happening. It really is.

  1. "Important Space Update"
    Also you forgot to trim off the "Un" at the end there, I think.
    Summer release though. I've waited this long, I can wait a little longer. Hype is building!

    1. To be honest I have no idea how that got there. I certainly don't remember writing it. But let's pretend it's deliberate and I'm going for a fun numbering pattern.

  2. This is a great way to keep you accountable.

    1. Yes it is. I was able to write three times a week for six months by holding myself accountable like this.

  3. Awww yeah, keep up the good work! So if it's ultimately going to be about 150,000 words, how many books are you splitting it up into? Or are you just making one really, REALLY long novel?

    1. I think I'm likely to make it into just one long novel. If I pushed it up to 200,000 and saw an adequete place to do a split, I'd consider changing it to a two parter. I guess I'll think about that more as I go on.

  4. you are moving right along...so that will make it roughly 240000 words....which is a huge book considering the average book is 64000 words...that is like 4 books in one...

  5. I think it's a good idea to post about your book progress on your blog. It keeps you on track, somehow. You're a fast writer. I'm slower than you.

  6. I like that photo of a cat hugging a post.
    Go write some more!

  7. Hello greetings and good wishes.

    Writing is always a tough task unless one is totally dedicated. If you can write every day, you will be able to accomplish more but that is perhaps straining too much.

    Interesting post.

    Best wishes

  8. My plan is to finish my book by the end of the summer.
    Good luck with yours because I don't think I'm going to hit my goal.
