Geez, do I feel stupid. Well, frustrated is more like it.
It’s June, and Episode Seven of The Visitors came out two months ago, and Episode Eight still isn’t out yet. Honestly, I did have problems with formatting, editing, etc.. But in the end, those are just excuses, and I hate excuses.
When you get down to it, the real reason is me. I was my own roadblock. I was having lots of self-doubt and no motivation. I had such intense writers block, it bled into other projects and I haven’t been able to write anything in weeks. It was like every time I sat down to write something, my entire body would shut down and my fingers were unable to move. Couple that with the fact that I had missed my deadline, it felt like the right side of my brain was brain-dead.
However, it recently it’s felt like somebody has hooked a defibrillator up to the right side of my brain and brought it back to life. The words are coming easier than ever. Even better, they’re the right words.
So, to save myself from a repeat of all of this, this is what’s going to happen with The Visitors:
It will still be serialized.
Episode Eight will be coming out soon, along with episodes Nine and Ten. They’ll come out every week, on Tuesday. So that will stay the same. Nothing on your end will change, you’ll just have to wait a little longer. Why? Because instead of writing each episode every week, I’m going to write those three episodes before I release any of them. That way I’ll have more time to edit, and I wont have to worry about missing any deadlines. Once Episode Ten is out, all five episodes of Season Two will be released in a bundle, so if you don’t want to wait week-to-week, you can read it all at one time when that is released.
It feels great to finally get that all off my chest. I truly am sorry, and I hope to make it up to you by making these last three episodes as awesome as I can. Just think of these two months as a mid-season hiatus like TV shows do. I hope to make it up to you.
