Virus update. We’ve reached 5,077 known cases and 289 dead. This means since last week we’ve had 145 new cases and no new deaths. This includes the totals from today.
Book news. I finished the fourth story for Crimson Rose. Self edited. Gave to reader. I wait until September to send to an editor. This was my last scheduled story for the year. However, I’m working on a werewolf story for Bastet’s Daughters and a litRPG type of story. I’m not sure where the RPG story is going, but the character wouldn’t leave me alone. So, she’s getting her own stories. Word count this week 5,516. Earlier in the week it was to finish Crimson Rose, but I have 1,800 words done into the werewolf story, which I’d prefer to be about 40k to 50k. The RPG story has 1,844 of the 40k to 50k.
If you want a free short story, I’ll offer it if you join my newsletter.
I uploaded my thirtieth-first writing video on my YouTube channel. As usual, I talk about the same things I do here but maybe more. I’ve also been uploading gaming clips. Most are ten to twenty minutes long. I’m not sure what my Wednesday video game clip will be. Maybe Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Maybe something else. I’ll figure it out.
Gaming news. I’m Pathfinder: Kingmaker. Fun game. Loading screens are annoying. So many. I’m not sure how long I’ll have the patience for endless loading screens. Also, the game needs work for the console. Serious memory leak.
I haven’t started a new dragon puzzle. Haven’t had the time.
