Chapter XLI is out! Note that this is not the final revision, but it’s pretty close.
The second half of Chapter XL will likely be removed later on, to keep the flow of upcoming chapters. You’ll see why in a few weeks.
As of this past Monday, my computer problems have been resolved. Updates on The Revelation will resume either this Sunday or next Wednesday. Some time early next month, I will also begin working on The Inheritance for the Cosmos subdomain.
Updates will eventually stop for a while, however. Once the Cosmos short story project is finished (as in, the planned releases are out), I will be heavily rewriting existing Chapters of The Revelation. The idea is to create more detailed and flavored prose that better instills the story’s desired atmosphere. During this time, I will also be adding a handful of new Chapters early into the story to better flesh out some neglected characters, as well as extending several chapters that are rather short. Pacing will also be worked on, to keep the story from being too much of a slog.
Yesterday, the solid state disk that ran my computer kicked the bucket. I’m rather annoyed by this, since the only other functioning hard drive I have holds all of my documents–that means no matter what, I’ll be paying at least 70 dollars that I don’t currently have to fix my computer. This is because I can’t simply install the operating system on the remaining hard disk; doing so would require that I erase that hard drive, losing all data. Although I backup online in addition to on that disk, there are important updates to certain documents that had not yet been uploaded to the server, and some of these are not worth losing.
As it stands, I am working on a relative’s computer. Because of this, my access to files isn’t guaranteed at any time. I can continue updates to The Revelation, but the pace will either match or be slightly slower than before; either way, I will not be able to work on Inheritance for a while, meaning there will be no updates to the Cosmos subdomain for the time being.
