WIP Update – 17 Aug 14

I pretty well finished Caligo’s Chapter 2 and epilogue in TTWC2 and did a bit of writing on his Chapters 4 and 5. What happened to Chapter 3, you ask? I’ll be getting to that.

I also did some more work on the peripheral materials for Student of Gladius. Adapting the Gladius Cycle to a Japanese high school AU is an interesting challenge to say the least. Some of the re-aging I’ve done to characters to make it all fit really wreaks havoc on the chronology.

In other news, I’m going to try to start having at least one commentary post per week in addition to the WIP updates. Later I may decide to increase the frequency to as many as three commentary posts per week, but we can take it slow for starters. Stay tuned.

WIP Update – 16 Aug 14

I went through Arachne’s Chapters 2, 3, 5 and her epilogue of TTWC2, pretty well wrapping up her section and also went on to do some minor revisions to Caligo’s prologue and Chapter 1. You know, it’s entirely possible that I may be done writing TTWC2 before it even debuts on the site. Wouldn’t that be something?

I was also stricken by a bit of inspiration and did a little writing on Student of Gladius and adding to the peripheral materials. Speaking of peripheral materials, I went into the Earth Arc encyclopedia and added the kanji and hanzi renderings of Japanese and Chinese characters respectively. All in all, a fairly productive day. We’ll see what else I can get accomplished before switching back over to Tico4. Stay tuned.
