You may have noticed that I haven’t posted for a couple of weeks now. You may also have noticed that I removed the ending to Time Tourists. These things are related.
When I posted the entirely unsatisfactory conclusion to Time Tourists, there were a few things going on. The biggest factor was the deadline. It says “Updates Wednesdays” on the right side of every page on this website and I work hard to maintain that promise. In this case, I think it was a mistake. I should have delayed the post rather than post something that wasn’t ready.
I have a new ending now, but as I was about to post it, I made the decision that it still isn’t ready. I ran into what I call “the comic book problem” where the action I wrote would have been inconsistent with the larger world the story fits into even though that action would be great if it were a standalone story.
In other news, I have also written the ending of Discount Prophecies and I love it. I’m super excited to post it, but I’m going to finish Time Tourists first.
Thanks for reading and thanks for your patience as I write better stories instead of quicker stories.
