TDoE V2 Chapter 4: Awakening

Li Xiu Ying closed the door behind her and immediately removed her hooded crimson robe, revealing her beautiful naked body to me. She blushed and whispered “My younger sister told me what you did for her and I wanted to thank you… But on my way here, I discovered an ancestral pool of warm Nature Qi. By the time I arrived in Hua Jiang Palace, I was covered with these horrid sores! I was going to see a medical doctor, yet I felt too embarrassed and ashamed… I wanted to gather your professional opinion and make sure that it wasn’t a Spiritual affliction first!” Continue reading

Break-Day

This is an actual break day, from writing, posting and maybe even reading… So for the past week or longer, my eyes have been all screwed up.  Basically, it’s eye-strain, from staring at a computer screen all day every day.  It’s not really surprising, and this is probably the third or fourth time I’ve had this problem.

Daily Posts

I think I’m going to start doing daily HCOP posts again.  Starting with chapter 31 on Sunday, then there will be one a day… At least that’s what I’ll try to do lol. Continue reading

Immortal Soul?

Oh wow, I just realized how absurdly slow my reading speed is… It took me like 2 hours to read/edit this chapter.  6400 words is about 4.3 chapters of “Hardcore OP-ness” or “The Vanilla God”.  Seriously, “The Forest of Corruption” was like 16,200 words long… How the hell did I do that and why?  Ugh, when I eventually go back and edit “Immortal Soul” into actual books, I’m going to have to break a lot of the more ridiculously long chapters into smaller chapters lol.

I mean, I actually do have loads of ‘breaks’ within the chapter where I could have just been like “Yup, next chapter~!” but I didn’t.  The reason was probably because I felt like… guilt?  I thought that since I was taking so long to write the chapters, I should make them longer, which took more time, so it was pretty counter productive.

The moral of the story kids, is that when you’re writing, you shouldn’t let your leechers pressure you into doing things.  People weren’t even donating to me or anything, I was just trying to get ephemeral and immaterial ‘ratings’ on Royalroad, which never really amounted to anything either way.

You should write a story that you love and enjoy.  The more pressure, the harder it is to be creative :(.  Anyway, hopefully this little speech will help some of you writers out there…

So yeah, time to finally post “Chapter 11: Envy“… There’s no link cause I’ve still gotta post it lol.  It’ll take a few mins, but yeah, don’t expect “Chapter 12” any time soon :P.

(There actually is a link now roflmao.)

 

Yep…

Oh hey, I made a blog.  Sigh, it took so much time and effort, but I still don’t really know what I’m doing lol.

Well, I managed to separate the chapters into four pages, based on volumes.  When I tried to place them in individual pages, I reached some kind of limit on the amount of times I could parent pages in Act Two… which didn’t really make sense to me, but whatever.

If I can figure out how to get it to work later, I’ll change things… though I might still keep the full volumes the way they are for the people who prefer to read them that way… plus it took a lot of effort for me to set up all the links and stuff :(.

Anyway, that’s pretty much it, I’m not done writing chapter five yet, but on the positive side of things, I have a pretty solid idea about how the rest of this Act will play out now.  It will most likely be an 11 chapter volume, and probably the longest so far.

Fun fact I discovered because wordpress gives you wordcounts of everything, my whole story so far is over 260,000 words.  Volume One was 74k, Volume Two was 83k, Volume Three was 66k, and what I’ve written of Volume Four so far is up to 38k.

I’ll probably make a character sheet on this site when I have time, there are lots of characters… and other things that I would like to talk about.  I’m still going to post chapters on Royal Road, but aside from that, it’s kind of difficult to post things beside chapters there.

For example: Here’s a link to Animenz playing a piano cover of This Game the theme song from No Game No Life.

Question: Why did I link that?

Answer: Because I can, and I enjoy listening to piano covers of anime theme songs.

Okay, before I start linking videos of Tigers Eating Catnip… never-mind, it’s already too late.

Ah, Youtube, how did we survive before the internet anyway?
