Want to Post More Often

When I started, I decided to update Scary Mary only once a week. Now that I have a few people reading it, liking it, and waiting for updates, I feel the urge to post more often. I don't have much story left. Only two chapters. One chapter is extremely long. Not sure yet if I'm going to break that one up, but for now, it's a very long chapter. But knowing people are waiting, it makes me eager to give more.

But even if I break that long chapter into two, I only have a few chapters left. It's almost over, and I'm thinking about my next project. I've learned a few things from posting Scary Mary. The format of the template is basically what I'll use for my next project. (I just went and reserved the blogspot address for it because I'm that anxious to begin.) I'm going to post more often with my next project because for one, it's over twice as long as Scary Mary, and I don't want it to take a year to post, and two, I plan on having much shorter chapters. I've seen the light with that. I thought about shorter chapters with Scary Mary, but I didn't' feel right with the breaking up of chapters. But the next project titled Unicorn Bait, will have much shorter chapters. I don't know yet if I'll post twice a week or three times a week.

I work full-time and try to have something of a life, I worry I won't be able to keep up with such a heavy posting schedule.

But I'm excited about the possibility. I hope the readers of Scary Mary will follow me to Unicorn Bait. It's a fantasy story with a lot of humor in it. It's basically written, but I'll be revising it heavily as I post. That's what could slow me down. I've been trying to do some revision now, but like I said, there's a lot of novel here, and I'm trying to polish up Scary Mary.

I'm still revising Scary Mary too. I found myself updating the first chapter the other night. Nothing too serious, just trying to make the text better. I'm a revising fool. I can't stop meddling.

Oh, and I plan on updating this blog a lot more often. I'm thinking daily right now, but I'm not making any promises.
