The penultimate chapter of A Kind of Drug is finished. With a real happy ending. It's also a super long entry (9 pages), but as I get closer and closer to the end, I just have less and less of a desire to drag this thing out. Godlike V is all about one subject and one subject only - the death of the narrator. To drag it out into two parts would've just been silly. There's a lot of drama going on and I think it'd really break up the momentum & gravity of the work to split it up just cause of some arbitrary rule I set for myself a year and a half ago.
Next week begin's the final push. Only two more updates until the book is done. [Untranslatable] will be short & sweet. And I hope to god it lives up to everyone's expectations.
I feel like crap. I'm in the middle of a horrible bout of depression right now. Maybe it's due to a severe lack of sleep. I honestly don't know. It's been creeping up for like a week now. And at this moment in time, it's preeeetty bad. Either way, the point is that I'm not a super gabby mood.
But Godlike IV is live. So read it and stuff. Bye for now. I need to go and find comfort at the bottom of a bottle.
Godlike III is now live and - no lie - contains only a single line of dialogue. It's a total exposition party. WOOOO!!!
Though it is really weird to think about how everything is winding down so quickly. I can't believe it's only 4 more weeks until I wrap this sucker up.
God, I am gonna get so shitfaced when this is all over with.
Nothing major. Just updated a bunch of PDFs that were missing for various parts of A Kind of Drug. The list is:
Chapter 4 - Acceleration - Part II
Chapter 9 - Wrath - Part VI
Chapter 10 - Mythmaker - Part I
Chapter 10 - Mythmaker - Part IV
Chapter 11 - Godlike - Part I
Chapter 11 - Godlike - Part II
That's it. Off to champagne land for me.
This week´s update really shows how much I care about continuing this story on time. I´m currently using a computer that has to be at least a decade old and on a system of Windows and Explorer that is so old, my web-updating software is barely compatible with it. Which is why there´s no PDF of Godlike II right now. I can´t upload any files cause it doesn´t understand the code.
Seriously, being in Argentina sometimes feels like being in a 1983 Benetton ad. But with less racial diversity.
Godlike II is also a little lengthy. The rest of Godlike will be very choppy, in general, with some parts being long and some being short. You´ll all just have to cope. IT´ll be
After a 2-week delay, A Kind of Drug is back for it's final stretch. Godlike I is live and all that jazz.
I'd like to go on about it more, but I'm in San Francisco right now and I have a LOT of drinking to do.
Seriously. Mythmaker VII is online a day late. And somehow, it's short a dollar. Don't ask how. It's probably mostly in loose change. But there's definitely money missing from it's wallet. It's really weird.
Oh, you may also notice when Chapter 11 is debuting. A two week break is about to happen before Godlike shows it's head. Why? Cause I hate you all. Fuck you, that's why.
Or cause it's the second to last chapter (Almost the last chapter, really, since Chapter 12 is only going to be about 2 parts. Maybe even just 1.) and it's like squeezing blood out of a rock trying to get the last, little bit of this story out of my head. Two nights of writing were all complete garbage. And I don't want the story quality to go in the toilet right at the end.
So give me a little extra time. The end is coming soon. I promise.
So, as I'm sure you've all noticed, Sloth ended on a super emotional note. Which is fine and all. But reality continues to persist.
Now comes the real aftermath of all that's happened. In sort of the same way that "What happens after 'ever after'?" addresses the idea of what happens after a happy ending, Chapter 8 (Heartlessness) addresses what happens after a sad ending.
Mostly because I'm an asshole and I like to see how things can get even worse.
Seriously, if you all don't kill yourselves by the time Chapter 10 rolls around, it'll be a borderline miracle.
Crap, I'm going to jail, aren't I?
