So, I've been gone a while.
The reason is I've been sick. I caught covid again, but this time it took FOREVER for me to get over it. Like over a month.
Long covid is a thing. I'm just glad that I finally shook it off, some people aren't so lucky. It's thrown just about my entire life into chaos, from nearly losing my job from being out sick for nearly 6 weeks to the adventures of having to drive to and from the store to buy food when I could barely walk.
I'm still not feeling 100%, but I have had the energy to write. The problem is, the long hiatus has wrecked my progress on Revelation. I've completely lost track of what I wanted to write there, so I've had to more or less rebuild everything I had in mind from scratch. So, that story's gonna be delayed a little bit until I can get back to where I can make progress again.
But fear not. While I was sick, I delved into the archives of my many story concepts and pulled up something I think I can clean up and release. As you guys know, I do a lot of "test chapters" where I write the first chapter of a story idea just to get a feel for it, and while most of them are awful, there have been a couple that I consider decent enough to allow people to read.
Once I clean it up, I'm gonna post it in the next few days. It's from like 10 years ago and it was saved in .rtf format, so I'll have to run it through Word and spend some time making int presentable. I'd like you guys to read it and give me some honest feedback on it.
The story's premise is that a regular guy from the regular world just happens to also be the familiar of a magician in another dimension. The story follows how his life changes and evolves when the magicians of that world find out that they've been summoning actual living people to serve as familiars, as well as the fact that the familiars find out they can use magic back in the real world, that the connection between them and their magician partners goes both ways. What makes it even more fun is that when he's summoned to the other world, he's an entirely different person with a different personality that is completely separate from him, interacting with each other through the memories they share between themselves and rare moments where they can talk directly.
I'll have that chapter up probably on Tuesday. I'm back at work now that I'm testing negative, and since I still don't feel fully healthy, that wipes me out. I'll work on writing on my day off.
