SURPRISE! Magical Girl Policy-Chapter 26 is up for your literary pleasure! I apologize for the lack of updates or insight as to what has been going on but the past few weeks have been a nonstop cavalcade of chaos. Let’s just say, well, things have been a mixed bag of busy. How mixed? Well, my roommate had a heart attack. Seriously. Yeah. Everything is fine now, thank goodness and praise *insert your deity here* the event didn’t happen in MY presence. I totally would have assumed a nap first. Yup. My roommate could have died right in front of me and I wouldn’t have known it until it came to stick pokin’ time. Thankfully my roommate had the decency to have their heart attack in front of their entire family at a reunion while their nurse aunt was there. But yeah. That happened.
Also, a week later, my grandmother had a heart arrhythmia. So basically don’t get too close to me. I apparently cause heart stress. But, regardless, the past two weeks I’ve been helping out with both so that has taken up some time. Not all my time but it has sapped me of some of my creative energy if I’m completely honest.
But it hasn’t been all heart attacks and bad news! I mean, I don’t THINK it has. It seems I may have gotten hired at that place I had a job interview at. I say seems because they haven’t formally said anything but they are having me fill out paperwork that you’d fill out if you were being hired. My hiring representative is sadly on vacation and I haven’t been able to get a full answer. But if all goes well I’d actually start mid-August. So, yeah, really soon. This would be a very welcome change of pace to my life. Not having money, it turns out, is non-ideal. Plus it’d be working for a company that I previously worked for, that I liked, but hated the job. This would be in an area at the company I wanted to go into but until recently didn’t have access to locally. So this would be VERY good news.
However, because the theme of this post is “mixed bag”, I have to say this would likely change my Patreon goals. Right now we are sitting around $250 (and I really still can’t believe that number!) and my next goal is at $300. That goal would be a bonus story once a month. If I’m completely honest, I’m going to say that I probably can’t do a full-time job and write three chapters a month. I might be editing the goals to reflect my new situation as details become apparent.
For those of you wondering about Project S.C.I.R.T., yes it should have updated twice by now. The stress of all this HAS gotten to me if I’m honest. I might be contacting another artist to help me out with this. We’ll see. But I haven’t forgotten about it or abandoned it. So there is that.
As a side note, sorry this chapter is so much shorter than other chapters. I still feel it’s a good chapter but it IS shorter. Basically, with all that has been going on, it came down to a choice between putting out what I had or delaying the chapter until I could get it to a normal length. Ultimately I decided that delaying chapters is what lead to The Hiatus years ago and I don’t want a repeat of bad habits. So I put out a shorter chapter. If that’s what I have to do to keep these chapters coming, so be it!
Don’t have a schedule planned for the next chapter yet but I’ll be updating that banner soon as I do! In the meantime I’ll be just working on more stuff and trying not to cause any more heart problems,
